“Of Durham, By Durham, For Durham”
Bulldog Ensemble Theater is a group of Durham artists who create exciting productions of the best new American plays that speak to our community. Inspired by the 30-year legacy of Durham’s Manbites Dog Theater, where many of us first came together, we work to cultivate artists and audiences for adventurous material. That includes developing plays by local writers and teaching classes in theater arts for community members.
We are dedicated to reaching out to all the communities of Durham to welcome them in, and producing of-the-moment plays that speak to them. Our annual roster of artists reflects the city's demographics, and we’re constantly recruiting the next generation of creative collaborators from across our city and region.
