"The IRC's mission is to present and preserve classic and lesser-known works by authors from the loosely-defined 'Theater of the Absurd' including works by Samuel Beckett, Eugene Ionesco, Edward Albee and many of their European predecessors from the 19th and 20th centuries.
The company is run by a volunteer staff of 4 who all maintain full time day jobs outside the IRC, and who produce between two and four productions a year with very limited financial and human resources. Coined 'Philadelphia's Absurdist Aces' by The Philadelphia Inquirer, the company has the smallest budget of the over 100 theater companies in the city. Presenting these seldom-seen plays is for us an avocation, a true labor of love. Operating under this non-traditional model, we are able to breathe life into works that for a larger company would prove too great a financial risk".
Pledges are being accepted for "MARRIAGE" from $1.00 - $500 and above.
