The Associates were once hard-working apprentices at Actors Theatre of Louisville. There, they trained together under The Mad Ones, who led them through their first devised pieces and, in so doing, forged a creative bond among them that they rely on to this day. Now they continue that practice together in New York City, as hard-working apprentices in the Theater At Large. They are the writers, directors, and performers of their plays. They harvest paradox; they dwell in sticky moments; they make work that aims to change the trajectory of storytelling tradition.
