For more than 30 seasons, Horizon Theatre Company has been bringing exciting local and world premieres of contemporary plays to Atlanta's audiences. The theatre has been under the leadership of co-artistic directors and founders Lisa and Jeff Adler since 1983.
Horizon is a professional theatre with a reputation for excellent ensemble acting, and it produces outstanding new plays by today's playwrights that reflect and challenge the lives of the diverse people living in the urban Southeast. Horizon has introduced Atlanta audiences to the works of such well-known contemporary playwrights as Rebecca Gilman, Wendy Wasserstein, David Hare, Terrence McNally and David Ives, as well as plays by talented emerging writers.
In addition to producing its five-play mainstage season, Horizon also develops new plays through workshops, readings, and through our annual New South Play Festival, dedicated to plays from, for and/or about the South. Horizon develops new audiences and artists through the Horizon Playwriting Education programs. Horizon's home is an intimate 175-seat theatre located in Atlanta's eclectic Little Five Points business and arts district.
