Producing continuously since 1986, Annex Theatre is Seattle’s longest-running fringe theatre, and stakes its reputation on producing the boldest and riskiest of world premiere plays, solo performances, and emerging artists, as well as curated variety in our monthly cabarets Spin the Bottle and Weird & Awesome with Emmett Montgomery.

Each year Annex Theatre produces eight brand new plays along with co-productions and rental productions — which means we produce year-round! Ticket sales cover less than half of our operating costs for this rigorous production schedule, therefore Annex Theatre depends significantly on theatre lovers like you who donate.

Every dollar you donate to Annex Theatre nurtures the Northwest’s most promising contemporary playwrights, actors and designers and creates a fertile ground for artistic risktaking. Your donations also directly help make Annex Theatre accessible to all audiences by keeping ticket prices incredibly low.

Annex Theatre’s 2016 Season marks our 29th year of producing compelling new work. We invite you to play a vital role in this creative process by making a one-time donation or by joining the A-List with a monthly donation.

More About Annex Theatre

Annex Theatre is a democratic collective of theatre artists dedicated to creating bold new work in an environment of improbability, resourcefulness and risk.

In addition to new plays by living playwrights, Annex produces radical reinterpretations of classic scripts, ensemble-generated non-linear spectacles, and dynamic solo performances, as well as our monthly late-night variety show Spin the Bottle, now in its 14th year. All productions are chosen by the Annex company as a whole, through a process of proposals, interviews, readings, frenzied argument, and final consensus.

Annex Theatre now resides at the corner of 11th Ave and E Pike St. in the heart of Capitol Hill. After early throes on Bainbridge Island, Annex Theatre began in 1988 in a former dance studio on 4th Avenue in downtown Seattle. Since then the theater has produced hundreds of world and Northwest premieres, including new plays by Stranger Genius Award winners Chris Jeffries and Paul Mullin; dozens of other local playwrights, including Elizabeth Heffron, Jeff Resta, Kelleen Conway Blanchard, Scotto Moore, Keri Healey, Scot Augustson, John Kaufmann, and Heidi Heimarck; and nationally recognized playwrights such as Erik Ehn, Naomi Iizuka, Glen Berger, Anne Washburn, Jeffrey Jones, and Nicky Silver.

Former Annex company members alumni can be found throughout the Seattle arts community, including former Artistic Director of the Empty Space Allison Narver, Executive Director of Town Hall Weir Harman, Development Director for Seattle Youth Symphony Josef Krebs, Seattle Children’s Theatre Teaching Artist Gillian Jorgensen, and Education Director of Seattle Repertory Theatre Andrea Allen, as well as in the local and national film industry—such as directors SJ Chiro, Garrett Bennett, and Mike Shapiro, and actors Jillian Armenante and Paul Giamatti. We believe that Annexʼs distinctive collective working model which cultivates a combination of initiative, diligence, and the ability to play well with others is responsible for this remarkable track record of producing leaders in the arts.
