Mission & History


Horizon Theatre Company’s mission is to connect people, inspire hope, and promote positive change through the stories of our times.


Horizon Theatre Company has been bringing exciting area and world premieres of contemporary plays to Atlanta’s audiences under the leadership of Co-Artistic Directors and Founders Lisa and Jeff Adler since 1983. A professional theatre with a reputation for excellent ensemble acting, Horizon produces outstanding new plays by today’s playwrights that reflect and challenge the lives of the diverse people living in the urban Southeast. Horizon has introduced Atlanta audiences to the works of such well-known contemporary playwrights as Rebecca Gilman, Wendy Wasserstein, David Hare, Terrence McNally, and David Ives, as well as plays by talented emerging writers. In addition to producing its mainstage season, Horizon also develops new plays through workshops, readings, and the annual New South Play Festival, dedicated to producing plays from, for, and about the South. Horizon develops new audiences and artists through the Young Playwrights Festival, Apprentice Company, and Intern Company programs. Horizon’s home is an intimate 172-seat theatre located in Atlanta’s eclectic Little Five Points business and arts district.
