we are stories
LITC brings new and surprising performances to our community. We create cutting-edge adaptations of classic texts—and make those stories new again. We produce visceral modern plays from contemporary voices such as McDonagh, Shepard, and yet-unknown work from the next generation of storytellers right here on Long Island.
Our events often feature live music, visual art, and other surprising opportunities for "stories" to be defined broadly and boldly. We welcome the opportunity to collaborate with artists of any medium, and audiences of any taste. As a collective, we are all LITC: the artists and the audience, the showers and the tellers, the listeners and the supporters.
This is our collective, and Long Island is our home.
Let's tell some stories, together.

NEW PLAYS FESTIVAL
From 389 submissions, we've selected six world-premiere plays for our New Plays Festival! Read more about the festival by clicking here, and don't miss special previews of each piece on the LITC blog.
The purpose of the Long Island Theatre Collective, Inc. (LITC) is to bring quality, professional, affordable theatre to the Long Island community. No one will be turned away from an LITC production because they can’t afford the price of a ticket (contact us to discuss how we can help). Ticket revenue and monetary donations are put directly toward our productions, community outreach, and compensation for our artists.
not for profit
Long Island Theatre Collective is fiscally sponsored by Fractured Atlas, a 501(c)(3) public charity that helps artists and arts organizations raise money from charitable sources. Contributions for the purposes of Long Island Theatre Collective (LITC) are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
Thx to everyone who joined us for New Plays Fest. Stay tuned in the coming months for announcements about our 2nd season!
