(Co-Producer) Colt Coeur is a Brooklyn-based theater company founded in 2010. Artistic director Adrienne Campbell-Holt leads a 16-member ensemble of actors, playwrights and designers to nurture the next generation of theater artists through the development and production of new plays and by providing arts education to students from underserved NYC public schools. Over 8 years, Colt Coeur has produced 9 world premieres; developed 40 plays; and provided free arts education for over 120 students. All 9 world premiere productions have launched some of the most exciting voices in American Theater today. With Steven Levenson’s Seven Minutes in Heaven; Lucas Kavner’s Fish Eye; Eliza Clark’s Recall; Nikole Beckwith’s Everything is Ours; Ruby Rae Spiegel’s Dry Land; MJ Kaufman’s How to Live on Earth; William Francis Hoffman’s Cal in Camo; Ana Nogueira’s Empathitrax; and Amelia Roper’s Zürich, Colt Coeur has established itself as a home for a new generation of theater artists. In addition to our productions, Colt Coeur serves the community by hosting a free week-long Playmaking workshop for local middle and high school students during their Spring Break. And we have expanded our dedication to underserved creators by establishing the Parity Plays Fest in 2014, presenting four readings of plays from female or trans playwrights and directors. In 2017 we welcomed our first class of Resident writers and directors: Kate Cortesi, Jeremy O. Harris, Rehana Lew Mirza, Danya Taymor, Pirronne Yousefzadeh & Catherine Yu. After presenting our first commissioned play, Zürich, Colt Coeur has also embarked on our second commission with playwright Antoinette Nwandu.
