SUNGLASSES AFTER DARK: A MANIFESTO
Sunglasses After Dark Productions is a theatre collective dedicated to challenging audiences by deconstructing stereotypes. As a family of artists collaborating together, SADP fosters a supportive environment of unique perspectives. SADP creates and develops new plays, as well as revitalizes classic works with groundbreaking approaches to gender, race, religion, ethnicity, sexuality etc.
Too often we are bombarded by negative and limiting social messages; SADP serves as a proponent of positive social change. Theater should open doors of communication, reach out to communities, fight against intolerance and act as a backlash against hate. We do not create new plays solely for the purpose of creating new work: we empower the weird, turn the unseen into the seen, give the unheard a voice. As the Great T. Geisel once wrote, “A person’s a person no matter how small.”
