Tantrum East is dedicated to producing new work, featuring works by Ohio University alumni. We want to introduce new voices to a loud city and help make them heard.

Founded in 2018, Tantrum East was created with the single goal of showcasing the works of Ohio University School of Theater alumni in New York. We realized we had access to scripts, actors, directors, designers, and the desire to organize. Beginning with Bobsnacks: A Night of Stories where members of an OU Playwright alumni writing group were able to have excerpts of their work read by actors in front of an audience, our next goal is to produce staged readings. Eventually, TE would like to fully stage productions and work in other forms of new media.

To date, we are humbled by the support we have received from friends, family, and fellow Bobcats – without which – we would be unable to really make any of this happen. If you care to join our Bobcat family please feel free to do so here!

Thank you for stopping by!
