Theater, by its very nature, is a collaborative event. The playwright, director, actors, technical crew, and, of course, the audience all come together to create a moment in time. When two theatrical companies join forces to put together a project, it can be the best of many worlds and create a wonderful synergy.

Chautauqua Theater Company and Barrington Stage Company have announced full casting for their co-world premiere production of tiny father, a new play by Mike Lew (Teenage Dick) and directed by Moritz von Stuelpnagel (Hand to God). The production will play from June 25 through July 22 at BSC’s St. Germain Stage at the Sydelle and Lee Blatt Performing Arts Center (36 Linden Street, Pittsfield, MA). Opening night is June 30, 2023.
