In 2010 director Benno Haenel and playwright Judith Estrine began a creative journey that culminated in the founding of Prism Stage Company in 2013. Their aim was to develop and produce new and overlooked plays by exciting playwrights over 40, performed by accomplished theater professionals.
Judith Estrine is Artistic Director of Prism.
Prism Stage Company is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit theater company incorporated in the State of New York.
Prism Stage Company was established to provide a venue for playwrights, actors and directors past 40 to continue growing in their art and serve multigenerational and multiethnic communities. Our mission is to engage audiences in works exploring what it is to be alive now, in a world so full of contradictions and at the same time so full of promise.
