I HAVE SEEN THE AGE OF THE SOUND AND THE FURY:
THE TRUTH IS MY CHARGE AND MY BURDEN;
MY CHOSEN VEHICLE THE STAGE.
WITH UNFLINCHING HONESTY,
UNBOUND BY CODE OR CONVENTION;
FOR THE PRESERVATION OF THE CRAFT,
AND THE BEAUTY OF THAT WHICH CANNOT LAST,
WE BRING ABOUT THE RENAISSANCE.
Idle Muse Theatre Company recognizes that, as a people, we spend our lifetimes exploring what it means to define our identities in a world that is constantly struggling to do the same. As we do so, that world becomes an expression of our own internal struggles, writ large. We produce plays which explore and examine the circular relationship between the individual and the world; plays about individuals who are called upon to define themselves in relation to a larger political or social context.
“It is the greatest gift of my people, that we can bring our dreams to life for other eyes. Fantasy is a tool; like any tool, it may be used poorly or well. At its best, Fantasy reveals truths that cannot be shown any other way.”
-Matthew Woodring Stover, “The Blade of Tyshalle”
