Pi Theatre's Mission
What We Do
Mission: Pi Theatre produces and presents bold and uncompromising plays that explore modern life. We connect audiences with theatre that’s intellectually alive and emotionally charged.
We invest in work that extends beyond the stage to challenge perceptions and generate conversation. We are concerned with creating social moments, community connections and artistic impact.
