Since 2003, the ensemble actors of Charleston’s acclaimed PURE Theatre have built a solid reputation for artistic excellence in provocative contemporary theatre. The 20 professional actors comprising the Core Ensemble are the soul of PURE’s work. Serving a sophisticated and diverse audience with a taste for new work, PURE presents a compelling five-play season between September and June. Endeavoring annually to outdo what was accomplished in years past, PURE continually makes three promises to its audience: to always tell a story worth listening to, to only pursue excellence, and to always gift the audience something to talk about. The company has been lauded for coupling artistic risk-taking with a passionate commitment to addressing the important and often hilarious challenges of being human in the world today, yesterday, and tomorrow. PURE has been praised for its exceptional programming and diversity in casting.
