Unearthing Humanity: Borderlands Theater 30th Season!


"I am happy to announce that women playwrights dominate my first full season as producing director at Borderlands Theater. We are producing two new plays by women, and a commissioned collaborative theatrical event penned by two women and one man," said Marc David Pinate, Borderlands Theater's new producing director.


The 2015/16 season features 3 plays staged at the intimate 80 seat Temple of Music and Art Cabaret Space, and one site specific production.


Pinate said, "Not only are we showcasing women playwrights this season, we are also putting Tucson stories forward."
