We write, develop, and produce world premieres, offering our community daring, intimate productions at affordable prices.
We bring local theater artists together as partners in the creation and development of challenging new works, while maintaining the highest standards of professionalism and excellence.
We think globally, and act locally: we make plays.
Central Works fills a special niche for theater artists in the Bay Area. We produce more new plays by local playwrights than any other company in the area. Our goal is to create a unique theatrical experience for artists and audience alike. We have established a distinctive environment that is equally inviting to writers, designers and performers, offering challenging, professional productions at an affordable price.
