New plays by Craig Lucas*†, Will Eno, Lynn Nottage, Jose Rivera, Thomas Bradshaw, Zayd Dohrn, and Emily Schwend will have their world premiere on May 18th inside a mobile 4-by-8-foot theatre where one actor will perform one short play for just one audience member at a time.
The original plays comprise I’m Not the Stranger You Think I Am, the latest production from Theatre for One, the acclaimed one-on-one theatre company founded by its Artistic Director Christine Jones*, the director of the hit immersive extravaganza Queen of the Night and the Tony Award-winning set designer of American Idiot and Spring Awakening. Rooted in the belief that emotional intimacy is possible at any moment, at any time, and with any person, each short play in I’m Not the Stranger You Think I Am was specially commissioned for production in Theatre for One’s custom-designed, state-of-the-art performance space.
First come, first served. Wait times may vary greatly.

Theatre for One shares Arts Brookfield’s commitment to re-imagining the arts for public spaces and engaging audiences in new and unexpected ways. Arts Brookfield invited Theatre for One to bring their intimate theatrical experience to three of our public spaces. Theatre for One commissioned renowned playwrights to respond to the theme, I’m Not the Stranger You Think I Am, and the resulting series of 5-minute plays covers diverse, thought-provoking, universal topics that may elicit a range of emotions. We look forward to hearing about your experience with us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. #T41
