Wordsmyth Theater Company is a Houston-based playwright’s theater dedicated to developing new theatrical works from the formative stage through full production. Houston is the most diverse urban center in the United States, and our commitment to diversity and inclusion is reflected in the wide variety of plays we produce. Our workshops, readings, co-productions and full productions, the professional directors, dramaturgy and performers we arrange for our events, and our lectures, seminars, classes and web resources all provide playwrights the support and assistance they need to realize their artistic vision.
Wordsmyth Theater Company was created in 2007 by Elizabeth Earle, Karen Schlag and Asher Wyndham, and saw its first production of two original works at Company OnStage that year. Since then they have been developing a cohesive structure for the Company that can effectively aid writers in the development of new works.
