About us

Counterweight Theatre Lab is a theatre group focused on intimate, honest, and experimental productions that ask important questions, stimulate the senses, and tell unique stories. We bend things wherever we can, be it in casting, staging, or other theatrical norms, and if you come to a Counterweight show, you’re guaranteed to be right up close to (or part of) the action and be confronted with characters and stories at the edge of human experience. We’re interested in states of exception, in dissent, in exile, in homecoming, and in the apocalyptic on every scale.

We’re committed to putting on high-quality theatre, and anybody in the community passionate about what’s happening on our stage can participate: Local actors are welcome to collaborate with us, designers can work with us, and those interested in working backstage are always encouraged. With your help, we’ll continue to promote theatre as one of the powerful art forms here in our city and tell lasting, meaningful, and thought-provoking stories.


For information about upcoming productions, auditions, and other updates from Counterweight, give us your email address in the box below! We promise not to give it to anybody else or to spam your inbox with information you don't care about.

IRREVERSIBLE by Jack Karp
MAY 11 - MAY 27 2018

The year is 1945. In the remote New Mexico desert, J. Robert Oppenheimer and a growing army of colleagues develop a weapon that could end all life on Earth. In this hard-hitting and intimate play, Oppenheimer struggles to control the titanic forces he would unleash and balance the threat of the Nazis, his own emotional needs, and his seesaw relationships with his wife Kitty, his brother Frank, and his lover Jean.

Tickets are $12 for general admission and $6 for students (college, high school, etc).
Sunday shows are pay-what-you-can at the door.
