Event Details:
Slant Culture Theatre Festival opens with an eclectic Launch Party on November 13 and runs for 11 days of plays, workshops, music, food trucks, and Lobby Bar through November 23. Weeknight events begin at 7pm, and weekends open at 2pm and run late--as fun things do.

Envisioned as a laboratory for uncommon works that highlights the skills of local artists while engaging community-wide audiences, Slant Culture Theatre Festival features performances by producing companies Walden Theatre, Le Petomane Theatre Ensemble, Theatre [502], Savage Rose Classical Theatre Company, and Louisville Improvisors, plus a host of Louisville-grown Slant Guest productions.

The Festival, named for the lab practice of tilting a test tube to maximize an area for growth, has roots in Walden Theatre’s Slant Culture Series of plays. The series began five years ago to develop new plays by rising writers that feature complex teen characters, in order to challenge young actors to seek inspiration from a new angle – inward. By expanding the series into a Festival, Walden Theatre invites fresh collaboration and experimentation among Louisville’s performing arts stalwarts and emerging talents alike.
