We’re The Opposite of People.

Founded in the winter of 2013, The Opposite of People is dedicated to creating affordable, unconventional theatre that is accessible to the Boston community.

 

Affordable

Everyone is strapped for cash these days, which makes supporting the arts more difficult when the price of admission is high. By keeping our prices low, we’ll enable more people to experience theatre.

Unconventional

So you might say we’re a little quirky. Whether it be a little known work, an unexplored interpretation of an existing play, or an original piece, nothing is too out of the box.

Accessible

Let’s face it, not everyone in the Boston area has a car and it becomes difficult to support the arts when you can’t get to the theater. We strive to keep our productions local and accessible via public transportation.

Why 'The Opposite of People'?

You know, that’s a good question and one we’ve heard a few times. Some people think it’s because we’re vampire bats, but this is false. We are, in fact, people. Confusing, we know. Perhaps this will help explain:

There we were—demented children mincing about in clothes that no one ever wore, speaking as no man ever spoke, swearing love in wigs and rhymed couplets, killing each other with wooden swords, hollow protestations of faith hurled after empty promises of vengeance—and every gesture, every pose, vanishing into the thin unpopulated air. We ransomed our dignity to the clouds, and the uncomprehending birds listened. Don’t you see?! We’re actors—we’re the opposite of people.
- The Player, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead

Because we were founded by people who got into theater though acting, we thought The Opposite of People seemed appropriate.
