This company began in the spring of 2020 during the COVID-19 lockdown, under the name of Intermittent Theatre Company. Then, as now, we were meant as a way to provide theatrical productions while in-person playhouses were closed.

One thing hasn't changed, though: while we may not be in the same room, theatre lives on -- online!
