About
No Dream Deferred NOLA

What happens to a dream deferred? 

No Dream Deferred is a New Orleans based theatre production company that prioritizes cultural relevancy for our community audience as well as theatrical works written by playwrights that have been historically marginalized.

 

We recognize the systemic nature of cultural marginalization in the arts and therefore, we fight to create and to create as often as we please so that our stories are told and our dreams are never deferred.

 

No Dream Deferred strives to be an artistic home to theatre-makers of color in New Orleans, a place where our stories are authentically realized and wonderfully experienced.

MISSION

No Dream Deferred creates theatre programming that maximizes cultural relevance for our New Orleans audience.

GUIDES TO OUR MISSION

Our vision is to employ a revolutionary approach to art making in our city for our communities and in doing so create theatre that is anchored to place. We, through our programming and advocacy, are building a future where art leaders of color are not the exception but the norm.

  • We work to amplify the voice of historically marginalized playwrights.                             

  • We empower theatre-makers of color in the city of New Orleans and beyond.                 

  • Our approach to theatre-making is equitable in its visioning, design, and implementation.
