upstart crow collective was co-founded by Betsy Schwartz, Kate Wisniewski and Rosa Joshi in 2006. We are dedicated to producing classical works with all-female casts for contemporary audiences. Focused on telling story and living characters honestly on stage, our work is text centered and visually imaginative.
We've presented two critically acclaimed productions of Shakespeare plays: King John in 2006 and Titus Andronicus in 2012. Right now we're in development for an adaptation of Shakespeare's Henry VI plays which we've paired down to a jam packed one night event titled Bring Down the House.
