Add Verb is theatre for adding action.
This website is a partial archive of Add Verb’s and Cathy Plourde’s work in social justice and theatre for social change over two decades. Inquires welcome!
If you would like to talk about a workshop, a speaking engagement, or for more information about scripts or production rights for any of Add Verb’s programs please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is not enough to just do a play. What can the play do to help the community? Who are the stakeholders? How can we make it be safe to be uncomfortable, and stretch ourselves towards taking action steps that will honor those who are personally affected, and push for change without blame and shame?
Add Verb Productions (1999-2014) toured with performances providing health and wellness education to middle schools, high schools, colleges, and communities across the US and beyond. In its later years, Add Verb expanded programming to include education for the medical community on specific issues. Incorporated as a non-profit in 2004, Add Verb moved to the University of New England in 2011-2014. Add Verb is not currently producing The Thin Line or You the Man, but the scripts are available for sale online or directly from email@example.com.
