The White Horse Theater Company was created in 2002 by actors Rod Sweitzer & Kirk Kjeldsen out of a strong desire to make meaningful, passionate theater. For Rod and Kirk, Sam Shepard’s True West had long been a dream project. They hired director and fellow Shepard fan Cyndy A. Marion, who had just directed Fool for Love as her Brooklyn College MFA Thesis. From the very beginning, White Horse was committed to allowing its members to realize projects of their dreams. Under the Artistic Direction of Cyndy A. Marion since 2007, White Horse continues to provide an ideal creative environment for all of its artists. United by a love of Sam Shepard and Tennessee Williams, as well as a fascination with the American West, the American family and the search for an American identity, the company remains committed to making theater of a distinctly American flavor.
