Faction of Fools Theatre Company

About Faction of Fools Theatre Company

Our Mission

To entertain, educate and elucidate through the practice and performance of Commedia dell’Arte


We believe that Comedy doesn't negate tragedy. They are brothers in arms.


We use Commedia to bring out the truest sense of what a play is on the page, in order to rediscover classics and create dynamic new work.

We embody the spirit of Commedia, which is traditional yet innovative,  international yet familiar, and classical yet accessible.

In our performances, actor training, international initiatives, and educational outreach, Commedia dell'Arte is theatre at its best: physical discipline, spontaneous imagination,  collaborative energy, and joyous wonder.

Faction of Fools: We take comedy seriously.
