The Peccadillo Theater Company

About: View in admin

Founded in 1994, The Peccadillo Theater Company is devoted to the "lost classics" of the American theater - plays of obvious literary and theatrical merit which, for whatever reason, have fallen off the radar. Beginning with Eugene O'Neill, generally considered the starting point of modern American theater, Peccadillo concentrates on the era of the so-called well-made play, a period of sparkling wit and sophistication in comedy as well as deepening realism in the drama. It encompasses such diverse and little-known dramas as Clifford Odets' Rocket to the Moon, William Inge's A Loss of Roses, Elmer Rice’s Counsellor-at-Law, as well as the neglected plays of celebrated authors like Dorothy Parker and John O'Hara. Taken as a whole, this work represents nothing less than the American experience itself in all its contradictions and screwball energy. Peccadillo’s mission is to restore these buried gems to their rightful owner - the American theatergoer.
