Horizon Theatre Company’s mission is to connect people, inspire hope, and promote positive change through contemporary theatre and the stories of our times.  We seek to empower, inspire, celebrate, enlighten, and build bridges between diverse audiences and to ignite new artists and audiences with a passion for theatre that connects to their lives. 

Since its founding in 1983, Horizon Theatre Company has been a leader in the production and development of contemporary theatre in the Southeast.   Horizon presents professional Atlanta, Southeastern, and World Premieres of new and recent plays and develops new artists and audiences through education and outreach programs.  Now in our 35th season, Horizon seeks outstanding new plays by today’s playwrights – plays that reflect or challenge the lives of the diverse people living in the urban Southeast.  Horizon has won both critical acclaim and popular success with its productions of unexpected, exceptional new plays, producing 5-8 plays annually in our 172-seat theatre and regularly remounting shows in larger venues to reach new audiences.  We operate on a Small Professional Theatre Contract with the Actors' Equity union and employ more than 150 Atlanta based theatre professionals.   Horizon has produced over 130 plays; we currently reach over 45,000 people annually with our plays and programs.

Horizon has also received national acclaim as a center for development of new plays and writers from our region.  Our New South Play Festival and PlayWorks program, now in its 21st year, develops and produces new plays from, for, and about the diverse contemporary South with an emphasis on plays by women, artists of color, and writers based in the South.
