The Upstart Crow Theatre Company performs classical theatre with a true passion and love for the playwright's words. It is our love of language, of the finely crafted phrase that touches the soul, that draws us to the works of the world's greatest playwrights and that drives our philosophy of fidelity to the original text. We offer our audiences a luxury seldom seen today... an uncut classical play. We go out of our way to present plays as they were written and restore scenes that are traditionally cut; when available translations are inadequate, we recreate our own.
