MISSION HISTORY NOW

MISSION

Coffee Cup is a theatre collective that develops, writes and performs original,
actor-driven theatre. The Company provides its members with a flexible forum
within which they can experiment freely.

We take liberties with genre, mood and form while staying accessible.
Coffee Cup aims to shine a humane and humorous light on the small, everyday relationships and interactions which define so much of our lives,
and yet are so often taken for granted.

HISTORY

Coffee Cup (a theatre co.) was formed in 2004 from the desire to tell a story.
Well, five stories. Those stories comprised our first show: Turning Tables.
In April of 2004, we all answered the sameadvert in Backstage. The call was for
actor/writers to perform their own materialin a night of monologues. This night never
took place. The producers pulled the plug,and that was that. Another failed audition.
Or so we thought. A few months later, we all got an email from a fellow auditionee.
Did anyone want to make a show? We answered it. Five strangers started to write
a show together. That show was Turning Tables. We opened to great acclaim and
played to sold-out houses at Collective:Unconcious in the Fall of 2006.
A failed audition? Not quite. Coffee Cup (a theatre co.) was born.

We then went on to create our second original show, Standing Clear,
which played for four weeks at the Access Theater in June of 2008.

NOW

We are currently dormant.
Thank you for taking a look around at what we did when we did things!
