For over 20 years Piper Theatre, a not-for-profit 501(c)(3), has produced innovative and dynamic theatre by and for all ages. We have mentored and collaborated with thousands of artists, many who have gone on to write and perform at the finest arts and academic institutions around the world. It has been our profound pleasure to offer you our stage, whether you are a performing artist, writer, or audience member. How will you use it, what is your story?
We invite you to return, the show is about to begin!
Piper Theatre is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council as well as the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature. We are deeply grateful for their support.

PIPER WENT TO MALTA!
In February Piper’s Obligo team performed an original production of Mother Sauvage by Guy de Maupassant at the University of Malta. The company conducted four workshops at the University on Grotowski’s physical theatre principals and the work of Cecily O’Neill and Process Drama.
In August 2022, we toured our production of The Lincoln Dress to Romania. We performed to enthusiastic audiences at Un Teatru in Bucharest and Teatrul Municipal Matei Vișniec in Suceava and made many international friends. We added an original score by Rob Parker and further choreography by Julie Gibson. The audiences responded enthusiastically to the tale of the ghosts of Lincoln and Booth haunting the broken thieves in 1930s Albany. Even with subtitles, the play connected deeply and was met with standing ovations.
