"Southern Rep is the most important driving force
in contemporary drama in the Gulf South."
- Theodore P. Mahne, The Times Picayune
Founded in 1986, Southern Rep’s mission is to develop and produce new plays that reflect the diversity of the city we call home, to provide our audience with professional theatre of the highest artistic quality and achievement, and to establish a creative working environment that nurtures theatre professionals.
