In this second bloom but first full season of projects in collaboration with Black Theatre Workshop under the leadership of Tyrone Benskin, we have emerged with a season full of stories of forgiveness.
As I reflect on the ten years that culminate in this season that I’m so proud of, I hope you, English Theatre’s audience, know how much I have loved these stages and all the people associated with them – backstage, onstage and all of you out in front. It has been a great ten years. Thank you.
— Jillian Keiley, Former NAC English Theatre Artistic Director, 2012-2022
