The mission of The Sandbox is to promote new works utilizing top-notch directors and actors. The presentations have limited design elements and are promoted primarily online thus reducing the costs and risk of each production. By reducing risk, the Sandbox Series is designed to bridge the gap between “readings” and “main stage” productions and thus provide increased exposure to the new voices in American Theater.
