Rorschach Theatre, called "Washington's leading fantasists" by the Washington Post, is known for epic, immersive theatre experiences. In the 20-21 Season, Rorschach invites audiences to go on self-guided excursions to curated locations throughout the DC-area as they unpack the on-going narrative of DISTANCE FREQUENCIES, a new original work of theatrical fiction. Participants receive boxes in the mail detailing location to visit in the DC-area. Once there they unpack the box and discover elements that move the story forward. These eight chapters delivered between October 2020 and May 2021 will culminate in live theatrical experience in the summer of 2021.
Rorschach Theatre tells stories that allow for innovative design and visceral performances. The company treats productions as "installations" that surround the audience with the world of a play. The work centers on the intersection of magic or impossible moments and engaging human experiences. Without proselytizing, it provides a complex, intellectual catalyst for self-exploration of challenging subjects.
The Helen Hayes award winning company has produced more than fifty plays seen by tens of thousands of people in the Washington area. The company's work has gamered the attention of The New York Times, The Washington Post, American Theatre magazine and National Public Radio, as well as countless local publications.
