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.

COMING UP


COMING UP


PETROGRAD by Philip Gelatt and A. Rhodes
in collaboration with THEATREdART
July 21 - August 6
Fridays and Saturdays | 7.30pm
Sundays | 4.30pm

While the First World War rages on, a reluctant British spy stationed in the heart of the Russian empire is handed the most difficult assignment of his career: orchestrate the death of Grigori Rasputin, the mad monk, the Tsarina's most trusted adviser and the surrogate ruler of the nation. Petrograd, the seat of Russian power, is a powderkeg ready to explode, and world history is made as various factions including the British crown, the Russian aristocracy, the Bolsheviks, and the Tsar’s secret police engage in a power struggle over the many plots to assassinate Rasputin.

$15 / $12 senior+military / $5 for students

The final Saturday, August 5, we will have a talkback after the show where the audience is invited to enjoy wine and cheese while discussing the show with the cast and crew.
