Howlround Theater Commons Home Page

Welcome to HowlRound

HowlRound is ten!

We're a free and open platform for theatremakers worldwide, and we've been amplifying progressive and disruptive ideas about theatre and facilitating connections between diverse practitioners for the past decade. We function as a “commons”—a social structure that invites open participation around shared values. We believe Black Lives Matter.

All of the content (essays, videos, podcasts) on HowlRound comes from the theatre community who chooses to participate—that means you! Generosity from our community allows us to keep all our programs 100% free and open, and enables us to compensate our contributors—send us a birthday donation to help support our continued work.
