OUR MISSION

Our role is to mentor Boston-based artists and reach diverse audiences. We want to challenge opinions and push artistic boundaries through socially relevant theatre.

OUR STORY

Artistic Director Rosalind Thomas-Clark was a founding faculty member at Boston Arts Academy from 1998. She is now Theatre Faculty Emeritus, and serves on the Board of Advocates and on the Board of Company One Theatre. The vision of TC2 has been developed through the artistic vision of the Executive Board of former BAA Alumni. Over the past six years, TC2 has worked with over 100 former students of BAA, as well as other Boston-based artists, in labs, readings and performances. Our Honorary Board comprises members of the artistic community including directors, teachers, playwrights, actors and administrators. Many members of TC2 have joined Company One’s Professional Development for Actors class, co-taught by Rosalind Thomas-Clark and Victoria Marsh.

NEW ON OUR BLOG

Following the success of the past eight years of new voices in our Staged Readings, TC Squared once again provides a platform for local playwrights to develop their work under the guidance of Dramaturg Marty Kingsbury. THE NEXT STAGE each May showcases some writers who have been working with us for several years. This year we are again presenting 7 full-length Table Readings of new plays – the result of past work developed in our Playwrights’ Lab.

The Launch of TC Squared

…the night proved to me that theatre here in Boston is not dying, but paused on the brink of a delightful rebirth…I must give some recognition to these enthusiastic young practitioners. In every case, the material chosen was solidly original, contemporary, witheringly honest yet laced with bubbles of laughter—and every one of them ready to take the stage in final production. In every aspect, vitality and professionalism went hand in hand.Larry Stark
