B-side Plays was conceived out of the undeniable observation that children’s mental health is suffering from the isolation and uncertainty felt by many during the quarantine. And though states are slowly re-opening and some activities will resume, children still need a space to name and navigate their feelings in a fun, engaging, and unifying way.
B-side Plays prides itself as a company that uses theatre as a tool to navigate life, not just as an escape. It is our belief that when we play within the world of theatre, we find power in our own minds and in our own gifts.
The team behind B-side Plays is comprised of educators, theatre professionals, and designers who all share a passion for creating meaningful theatre productions that empower participants and provide real-life applications to problem-solving and processing emotion. And we do all of this by imagining, dancing, singing, acting, and playing together.
