Theater Programs & Venues at Boston University
Boston Playwrights’ Theatre
Founded in 1981 by Nobel Laureate Derek Walcott, Boston Playwrights’ Theatre is an award-winning professional theatre dedicated specifically to new works for the stage. At the core of our five programs is our MFA in Playwriting, offered as part of Boston University’s renowned English Department and in collaboration with the School of Theatre.
Wheelock Family Theatre
Wheelock Family Theatre at Boston University creates inter-generational and multicultural productions that provide a shared experience for the whole family. Our productions celebrate the diverse range of families found in the world today and seek to unite them in the shared experience of live theatre. We are dedicated to those who are historically under-served: people of color, people with disabilities, and low-income families. We know that it is not only children who are “at risk” in our society — but entire families and communities.
