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.
