For 31 years, Kitchen Dog Theater has fulfilled our mission to provide a place where questions of justice, morality, and human freedom can be explored. We choose plays that challenge our moral and social consciences, invite our audiences to be provoked, challenged, and amazed. KDT consistently offers local artists the opportunity to take on challenging roles, make bold choices in direction or design, and wrestle with the big questions in both classics and new works. In our history, we have staged more than 150 works, many of them regional or world premieres, and have received over 400 awards from various publications, D/FW Critics' Forum and the Dallas Theatre League, including numerous “Best Theater Company” nods. KDT is one of only two theaters in Texas to receive National Endowment for the Arts “Art Works” Awards in the previous six consecutive years. In an effort to nurture the rich talent pool in Dallas, Kitchen Dog maintains a resident company of 33 area artists, including actors, directors, designers, stage managers and playwrights.
