Origin Theatre Company premieres a diverse range of contemporary European theatre in New York City. Since its inception in 2002, Origin has been devoted to discovering, nurturing, and introducing new exciting voices from Europe, whose work provide unique perspectives on national identity, cross-cultural relations, and global understanding. Through both its main stage productions and theatre festivals, Origin is proud to offer these artists an important gateway to America.
To work as a playwright on Spinning the Times with Origin was a fantastic experience. I have never had a play produced in the US, let alone off-Broadway. This was my first time to reach an American audience. Nothing is more special to a playwright than having work travel to America and it is extremely rare for a Northern Irish voice to reach the American stage.
