About the Company

The Philadelphia Artists’ Collective, founded in 2008 by Damon Bonetti and Dan Hodge, is committed to promoting rarely performed classical plays through workshops and readings in the greater Philadelphia area. It is comprised of a group of performance and visual artists seeking to encourage the development of a common vocabulary and to promote arts awareness within the Philadelphia community. Its past readings and workshops have featured some of the region’s finest artists, and its productions (Duchess of Malfi, Changes of Heart, Creditors, The Sea Plays, Mary Stuart) have garnered wide audience and critical praise.
