Literature to Life
Where Great Literature
Becomes Great Theatre

Imagine an audience watching a great work of literature come to life before their eyes.

Literature to Life presents vibrant adaptations of award-winning works of contemporary American literature, each performed by a single actor. These adaptations tell a complete story by drawing directly on key dramatic moments from the author's text. These works encourage conversation and self-discovery. After a Literature to Life performance, audiences of all ages leave inspired to explore the story's meaning in their own lives.

Literature to Life performances are now available for booking in venues across the U.S.

 

"Literature to Life always starts with a key moment of action from the story. That's how we connect with youth. There is nowhere to hide from the story once the actor begins."

- Wynn Handman
