Board of Directors and Company

Adam Brummitt
Artistic Director

Adam Brummitt, at thirty-one (born the Ides of March) is, and has been since its formation in 2001, the principal Artistic Director of Random Acts Theatre. In his now decade-long time as artistic director, from playing to houses of ten, sold out performances, and back again, Brummitt has operated in the capacity of playwright, director, actor, and designer as well as directing and assistant directing for companies other than Random Acts. Through Random Acts most notably the first play in Brummitt's Void Cycle, This Go 'Round was produced. Brummitt is also the author of recent plays Suffering in Sirens, So Much More Than Weak, and NARRATIVE.

Brummitt is foremost a writer/director and more specifically a playwright and director of theatre; the focus of his plays varying widely though ever with the intent of exploring the ambiguities of social phenomena and existential philosophy which seem more to have chosen him than he them. Through through writing, Brummitt has remarked that he explores the notion beautifully expressed in Kurt Vonnegut Jr's 'Timequake' in which Vonnegut writes of his thesis adviser's definition of an'artist':

'"Artists", he said, "are people who say, 'I can't fix my country or my state or my city, or even my marriage. But by golly, I can make this square canvass, or this eight-and-a-half-by-eleven piece of paper, or this lump of clay, or these twelve bars of music, exactly what they *ought* to be!'"'
