2017 Winner: Company One Theatre

A company that consistently punches above its weight, Company One Theatre lived up to the name of its latest season, “Break Every Boundary,” bringing dynamic drama to unexpected settings. They presented the first-ever full-scale production at the Boston Public Library with Peerless, a modern take on Macbeth starring mean-girl twins with perfect SAT scores and deadly ambition. For the New England premiere of Jackie Sibblies Drury’s Really, a play set in a photography studio, they turned a South End gallery into an intimate theatrical space, one that allowed audiences to take in a complementary photography exhibition after the show. And they brought 80 one-minute plays to the MFA for Every 28 Hours, a performance in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. We’re on the edge of our seats for season 19.
