Meet Vivienne BeneschAs one of the leading performing arts organizations in the state, proudly embedded in a public research university with a legendary foundation in social justice and inclusion, PlayMakers Repertory Company will continue to unequivocally support diversity in all forms. It is both our responsibility and privilege to invite and nurture voices from all corners of our local, regional and global community into conversation about the most important issues of our time. We strive to enrich life in North Carolina by giving our community the chance to walk in other people’s shoes. At PlayMakers audiences of all generations gather in each other’s live presence to understand the devastating harm that results from inequality. Our mission is to create meaningful experiences, so that we all walk out of the theatre more compassionate, embracing the core values of our common humanity.
