NORTHWEST THEATRE WORKSHOP is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit theatre company. It was founded in March 2002 under the name Bump in the Road Theater and began its transition into becoming NORTHWEST THEATRE WORKSHOP in 2016.
NWTW creates, develops, and produces new work by local playwrights and performance-makers and connects that work with audiences.
NWTW envisions an explosion of new work that engages audiences with as many voices as possible, to empower live theatre as an active and timely cultural force.
NWTW’s core values are inclusivity, transparency, diversity, courageous risk taking, and stewardship of both theatrical tradition and future vision.
NWTW is in the midst of refining and demonstrating its purpose through this premiere, 2016-2017 season. The initial vision began in 2014 with the Cantilever Project, a short-term response to the challenges facing the development and production of new plays and performance pieces. The goal was to provide critical tools and resources that facilitate new work, in a context that honors the creator’s individuality and independent spirit. That program inaugurated several new works and gathered much interest among local artists.
