what’s new:

the frank THEATRE COMPANY names Fay Nass new Artistic Director

For immediate release: December 18, 2017

the frank Production Society is ecstatic/delighted/over the moon/tickled pink/honoured/thanking its lucky stars to announce its engagement of Fay Nass as Artistic Director. Fay comes to the frank having demonstrated skill and vision as a writer and director in professional theatre. However, perhaps most impressive about Fay is her personal and professional commitment to facilitating critical conversations about how race, place, gender, and sexuality intersect. We look forward to working with Fay as she curates community and professional theatre programming that invites audiences to contemplate the oppressive and liberatory potential of different ways of seeing and doing diversity..
