is a Massachusetts not-for-profit corporation that produces
original, unpublished theatrical plays and musicals by New England playwrights
and composers ourselves, the board of directors seek to create a theater
that can prove itself as a testing ground for new and exciting voices
in the theater. Festivals will also be produced that feature many of
New England’s top playwrights and composers, allowing local audiences
to sample a variety of offerings from many short works. It is our belief
that the Greater Boston area harbors some of the finest writers in the
country, and, by helping to shine a light on their works with quality
local actors, directors, and technical staff, the Image Theater can
be an important first stepping stone for these exciting artists.
