Ripe Time, is an Obie-winning theatre company founded in 2000 and led by director and deviser Rachel Dickstein. We develop and present ensemble-based theatre with rich language, visual power, and physical rigor. We tell stories from the inside out, using the language of memory, imagination and associative thought to trace how women negotiate identity in the face of cultural constrictions. Inspired by the most searing writing and cinema of the past, we create original multidisciplinary events for the 21st century celebrating women’s dreams and awakenings.
