Off the WALL is a 501C3 non-profit
and the resident theater company at Carnegie Stage
off the WALL has strived to produce powerful, important theater since its humble beginnings in 2007, and the genuine appreciation our loyal patrons have consistently shown have made all our efforts immensely worthwhile.
Starting with 2022-23 Season are going to look a little bit different from previous seasons. off the WALL was born in Washington, PA in 2007, moved north to Carnegie Stage in 2012, while venturing east to New York City with several productions along the way. We are now dipping our toes into international waters (if you will) by establishing a collaboration with Reykjavik’s Tjarnarbio Theater, where a revival of Natalia Zukerman’s The Women Who Rode Away was staged August 2022. Plans are in the works for additional off the WALL shows to be
presented at Tjarnarbio, and we hope to collaborate with other small, professional, like-minded theaters throughout Europe in the future. While we are very excited about this continued growth and expansion, Carnegie Stage will continue to be our “home base” in the U.S. with selected productions moving on to a New York Stage.
Our mission is to foster a compassionate community, ensure fair wages for artists, and promote the appreciation of diverse arts. We provide a creative home for live theater, dance, music, and comedy. We empower women theater artists to collaborate and innovate as playwrights, directors, technicians, and actors, nurturing their growth and new works.

"4.48 Psychosis is Shakespeare for the downtrodden. A true masterpiece of powerfully physical theater, poignant emotions, and incendiary wordsmithing that transcends into a uniformed array of violent pleasures for the audience to ingest."
