Tribe of Fools is dedicated to creating new plays that blur the lines between theater, dance, acrobatics and other highly visual and kinetic storytelling techniques. Each year we present a new show that is as physically daring as it is poignantly relevant. Our ensemble push themselves to their physical limits while creating dynamic characters that make you laugh until they make you cry.

Tribe of Fools has tackled issues like gender roles, toxic masculinity, violence, sexual identity, learning disabilities, family, power dynamics and even time travel. With our “signature sweet bad-ass approach to theater” we bring a sense of levity and fun to our productions in order to make complicated and difficult themes accessible and identifiable to the audience. Tribe of Fools has been nominated for 10 Barrymore Awards, were the 2018 recipients of the June and Steve Wolfson Barrymore Award for Evolving Theatre Company and they were finalists on TruTv’s Fake Off and have toured up and down the east coast. They’ve created twelve full-length shows including Fringe hits such as Fishtown, Fly Eagles Fly, Zombies with Guns and Two Street as well as multiple holiday burlesques.
