Mad River Theater Works is a professional touring ensemble with roots deep in the flat farm country of the Midwest. We create plays that combine music and drama to tell stories about people from the back roads and small towns of America.
We often reach back into history to cast a new light on the personalities and events that have shaped our nation. Our plays explore contemporary issues. We believe that theater can make a difference in the life of a community and our plays look forward to the choices we face in an increasing complex world. In particular, we focus on issues of community breakdown, the importance of individual cultures, racism and tolerance, and the changing role of women.
