Mission:
Airmid Theatre Company's mission is to recover, collect and produce classic plays by women.

Airmid aims to:
--produce performances of significant dramatic works written by women throughout history,
--engage in the ongoing research and recovery of classic plays by women,
--mentor emerging female theatre practitioners,
--commission and create new works by women for the theatre,
--expand the dramatic canon of works by women for study and production.

With these plays at the heart of its mission, the company creates a safe home for women artists, igniting broad public recognition of the essential contribution women have made to the worlds of theatre, dramatic literature.

By establishing the history of playwriting by women and professionally producing their work with actors of both genders as the playwrights intended, we open the door to broader discussion on women's roles today, and in the future.
Results:
In one season, Airmid increased the attendance to our family series play during our Summer Theatrre Festival from approximately 200 people in 2009 to 1200 children and families in 2010.
