  • Mission:
  • BootStrap Theater Foundation was founded in 1998 with a mission to help theater artists bootstrap their way to visibility. We focus on professional productions of original plays by San Francisco Bay Area playwrights. We work with playwrights, offering both dramaturgical and production support to bring previously unproduced scripts to fruition. As a nomad theater company, we have developed, produced independently or co-produced nine world premieres.
