About Us

Over the past quarter of a century, the Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington, D.C., has become “the nation’s foremost Shakespeare company” (Wall Street Journal) and the “region’s most dynamic theatre” (The Washington Post), and received more Helen Hayes Awards for producing than any other theatre. Under the leadership of Artistic Director Michael Kahn, STC has grown from its residence at the Folger Shakespeare Library to the Lansburgh Theatre in 1992 to the opening of the brand new Sidney Harman Hall in 2007.

Our Mission

The Shakespeare Theatre Company creates, preserves and promotes classic theatre – ambitious, enduring plays with universal themes – for all audiences.

Our Vision

We create theatre to ignite a dialogue that connects the universality of classic works to our shared human experience in the modern world.
