Welcome to HowlRound
We’re a free and open platform
for theatremakers worldwide.
We amplify progressive, disruptive ideas about theatre and facilitate connection between diverse practitioners. We function as a “commons”—a social structure that invites open participation around shared values. All of the content (essays, videos, podcasts) on HowlRound comes from the theatre community who chooses to participate—that means you!

Fighting for Social Justice in Theatre Practice
This collection of articles explores the economy of the performing arts sector and its impact on theatremakers and their art.
Here are a collection of essays that have stuck with me—Todd London on Irene Fornés, Michelle Memran on aging, artists and Irene Fornés, SK and Lisa Evans on breaking the binary, Basil K, gender parity in Canada, Larissa FastHorse on casting, decolonization, Seesaw Theatre, and why the Latinx Theatre Commons changed their name to Latinx.
Interesting Thoughts on Access, Inclusion, and Disability
I sub-organized into three separate topics:
1) The "Theatre-ing while Disabled" Series by Kate Langsdorf, which is a great overview at all the different ways professional theatre and disability can collide.
2) Two different takes on casting and representation as it relates to the iconic role of Richard III, and what that means for theatre and disability.
3) Two different practical advice pieces on how an organization can be more accessible.
