About Storyhorse

We are a documentary theater project based in New York's Hudson Valley. Our stories are inspired by transcribed conversations with the people of our communities, historical documents, and other primary sources, focusing on the social, political, environmental and medical issues we face. The stories are brought to life by actors in multimedia staged readings.
