About Open Circle Theatre


“He drew a circle to shut us out
Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout;
But love and I had the wit to win,
We drew a Circle that took him in.”
Edwin Markham

Open Circle Theatre (OCT) is Washington DC’s first professional theatre dedicated to producing professional productions that integrate the considerable talents of artists with disabilities. OCT was formed by a group of people with and without disabilities, who possess professional theater experience, love of the theater, and a commitment to full access for all persons in every opportunity our community has to offer.
