Bring the fire.

We are theatre prometheus


We tell the stories that too often go untold and we reach audiences too often overlooked by larger companies. From an unflinching one-woman take on Joan of Arc and our recent all-woman production of Macbeth, to our critically-acclaimed Good Kids and our queered Cymbeline, we are dedicated to producing work that highlights marginalized narratives.


"Full of creativity and energy, 
Theatre Prometheus is a group
you do not want to miss!

After a competitive application process, the Anacostia Arts Center has selected Theatre Prometheus for a Full Production Residency at their Box Theater!

With a grant from ARCH Development, Theatre Prometheus will use this residency to produce the world premiere of "Soldier Poet " by Darcy Parker Bruce, with Arabic translations by Esam Pasha.

Theatre Prometheus’ AAC Residency is partly funded by ARCH Development, the AAC’s parent organization that has been working in Anacostia since 1991. For the majority of its history, ARCH has focused on small-scale neighborhood business development and support.
