Triangle Theatre is celebrating its 47th year of offering staged readings and full productions of classic and contemporary plays for The Church of the Holy Trinity's congregation, neighbors in Yorkville, and theatre enthusiasts throughout New York City. Triangle is a respected member of the New York City theatrical community, providing opportunities for actors to practice their craft and for new playrights to try out their plays with an audience. Triangle is an integral part of the life of the parish and is one of the very few theatres on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.
Triangle has produced plays of both new playwrights and established dramatists. Past productions have included works by Oscar Wilde, Anton Chekhov, George Bernard Shaw, Brian Friel, Lanford Wilson, A.R. Gurney, Romulus Linney, and Tina Howe. Casts feature Equity, non-Equity and parish actors. Triangle has also produced one-man shows and cabaret performances, and it also offers a monologue and scenes class each Fall and Spring both for new actors and those looking to further hone their craft.
Since 2006, Triangle has been under the leadership of artistic director Dudley Stone, an actor and playwright, assisted by actor and director Elowyn Castle. The Triangle Board, chaired by the Rev. John F. Beddingfield, consists of 10 members: Jean Geater (President); Inez Lambert (Treasurer); Alexandra Harrington Barker (Secretary); Amelia Anderson; Hal Barth; Elowyn Castle; Leona Fredericks; Constance George; ; and, Dudley Stone.
