The Associates Theater Ensemble

The Associates are Jamal Abdunnasir, Peregrine Heard, Lauren LaRocca, Emily Stout and Casey Worthington, five playwright-performers who devise plays through a collective process of confession, confrontation and dissent. We create stories at the intersection of our personal nightmares, cultural taboos and current political landscape. Past plays include Black Protagonist (New York Innovative Theatre Award nomination for Outstanding Original Full-Length Script), Freesome and Say You’re Sorry. Upcoming: Sheila, premiering in January 2018 at the A.R.T./New York Theatres. As proud alums of the 2013-2014 Professional Training Company, The Associates are thrilled to pen new work for more brilliant apprentices! For more information, visit
