Join the Spectrum Theatre Ensemble at Barnaby Castle September 14-16 for The Hotel Plays, four short plays and scenes by Tennessee Williams and William Shakespeare woven into a cohesive whole. You'll travel through Barnaby Castle, a Victorian mansion groaning with faded memories, surrounded by ensemble members who will bring to life not only conventional scenes but a living, breathing, and fully interactive world.
The Hotel Plays will be performed as a fundraiser; all proceeds will go to the Spectrum Theatre Ensemble, a brand-new nonprofit theatre company, and to Barnaby Castle, a landmark of Providence's West Side.
Spectrum Theatre Ensemble
OUR MISSION: to evolve the tools, practitioners, and awareness necessary to empower those who struggle to make themselves heard.
The Spectrum Theatre Ensemble is a group of theatre artists, both neurotypical and on the autism spectrum, based in Providence, RI. The company was founded in 2017 by Clay B. Martin, PJ Miller, and a diverse group of individuals who share a common belief: that the theatre provides a unique venue for the understanding and inclusion of all, and that our society and culture are stronger for it. By producing relevant and high-quality productions and workshops, STE aims to engage both artists and audience to develop social skills, empathy, and understanding, and to spread the message of inclusion all over the world.
