Our Mission


InHouse works to create site-specific productions that confront our audiences with the realism of film in an immersive live theatre setting. We perform in houses, backyards, lobbies, bars & restaurants – all in an effort to give patrons a theatrical experience of such immediacy that entertainment becomes clandestine observation. In doing so, we hope to provide new perspectives on classic works while developing original pieces specifically designed for environmental theatre. Additionally, we are deeply committed to community-minded outreach and education.



Important message to the artist community, our friends and family: If you lost your job and are struggling due to the COVID-19 pandemic, please know that there are resources you can utilize. Below is a list of emergency financial assistance grants for artists as well as those in the service industry. Please feel free to reach out via email if you’ve heard of other grants to which folks can apply, as this list is in no way exhaustive. Remember, we are all in this together, and there is no shame in asking for help.
