MOXIE Theatre is a professional non-profit theatre founded by the critically acclaimed group of performers and directors; Jo Anne Glover, Liv Kellgren, Delicia Turner Sonnenberg and Jennifer Eve Thorn in 2005. MOXIE’s mission is to create more diverse and honest images of women for our culture using the intimate art of theatre. By producing works by female playwrights and giving special attention to plays that defy female stereotypes, MOXIE expands the idea of what is feminine. Our dedication to finding work that is underproduced means we’re discovering the classics of the future.

MOXIE fans know that each distinct MOXIE production will always share one similar quality – moxie. Moxie is defined as “force of character, determination, or nerve.” It may be the hero of a play who embodies the term moxie, or a challenging subject matter. Perhaps a playwright has invented an original world for audiences to explore, or actors are asked to stretch to new heights and break new ground in story-telling. In whatever way it is revealed, moxie is the unifying quality that defines all of our productions.
