The New Normal Rep was born from a group of theater artists meeting weekly via computer to read plays as a sort of campfire in the dark desert of the 2020 plague.

​New Normal Rep is dedicated to presenting both new and underproduced plays via the internet, in ways that maintain the essential dramatic spirit and nature of both the works and the theatrical experience itself.
