 I Wish You a Boat

a Ward Theatre Company original

The telling of this particular tragedy is the most visually stunning and masterful storytelling that we have seen in quite some time... If you can only see one more play this year, be sure to catch this show before it sails. We can’t recommend it enough.

ONE OF THE TRIANGLE'S 10 BEST PLAYS OF 2016, INDY WEEK MAGAZINE

Nowhere is Ward’s dark, suspenseful stagecraft more delicious than when Robert kneels before the flicker of a TV, watching the end of a bull fight. Helen and Derek stand motionless behind him. The chill sets in when we realize their placement echoes the positions of the toreador and the bull.

Revival

a Ward Theatre Company original

Listed in Top 5 list for Outstanding Ensemble and Top 10 list for Outstanding Shows of 2017 by Dustin Britt of Triangle Arts & Entertainment.

I’m still not certain if I was moved in places by something holy, or by the naked needs of the humans before me—needs that were met in some cases and not in others. Perhaps they’re one and the same, in the end. Still, I can report, without doubt, that I was moved.

The Mound Builders

by Lanford Wilson

These actors worked seamlessly to bring this play to an explosive and deadly climax. The characterizations and interactions of this ensemble completely submerged any vestige of the actor and made us see only the characters onstage...It was a first-rate performance in an intimate and in-your-face setting. It is well worth your attention, but make your plans now; remember, the house is purposefully small.

Almost Home

a Ward Theatre Company original

It amazes me that within a few weeks of Hurrican Ike, a small ensemble of actors-in-training could put together this incredibly powerful multi-media work that is authentic and of the highest artistic quality.
