Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company - Defy convention About Woolly

Woolly Mammoth began assembling a Company of actors in 1986, shortly after the theatre’s establishment in Washington, DC. Artistic Director Howard Shalwitz sought out performers “committed to our culture of provocation,” who embraced plays that took risks with both style and content. Woolly’s Company, which now includes playwrights, directors, and designers, is a robust community of artists at the center of our investigation of new plays, from early script development and design concepts, through the community dialogue surrounding each production.
