Discipline: Theater

Target Margin Theater was founded in 1991 by David Herskovits on the principle that works of art return us to real truths more powerfully by their divergence from a strict illustration of reality. Through classic and contemporary texts, we seek continuously to expand our conception of what can take place in a theater. Difference is the generative principle of everything we do.


We gravitate toward plays or other literary material that is different from us; either it is from another cultural or historical context, or it is strange in language or content, or it is formally adventurous and challenges our received ideas about what a play is. We hope that everything we do creates a different answer to the question, ‘what is a play?’
