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!

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.

This is America
A collection of works that help to explore the beauty, dysfunction and opportunity housed in this creative form called Theatre. America has an opportunity to be, support, and change into this.
