Another Country Production's mission is to create a new standard of excellence in theater and film through an absolute commitment to diverse, innovative and multicultural work. Named for the James Baldwin novel that examines relationships across race and gender preference, we are committed to producing new and underrepresented voices and to being a catalyst for inclusion in Boston. In addition, our aesthetic for performance and writing is based on both the Meisner technique as well as the collaborative and improvisational techniques used in group theater, helping actors, directors and playwrights to define new relationships with each other and their community.
