Slant of Light looks to be a rising star in the Connecticut community Theatre arena. Of the many community Theatres, SOL is a proactive and outreaching organizatino that is attempting to bring all forms of theatre arts to the community. I look forward to good things to come from this organization and hope to be a consistent volunteer.

I have been working closely with Slant of Light since September 2010. I continue to work with them and have no intention of leaving due to the amazing experiences I have had thus far with the company. SoL attracts positive people who are driven by a zest for life. I truly believe that Slant of Light can do whatever it sets out to do because of the atmosphere it creates. The people involved create everything; and the people involved breed success, a safe work space, and a true passion for life and the arts.

Working with Slant of Light has been nothing short of an awesome experience. My thoughts are respected and my assistance is appreciated. I've met many new people through Slant of Light and continue to do so. Not just coworkers, but friends. Good people surround Slant of Light which helps make it a great organization. I have no plans to stop working with this group of good people.

On February 23, 2011, Slant of Light Theater did a reading of my one act play, Good Riddance, that was magnificent!. It was more like a throroughly rehearsed production than a reading. I could not have been more pleased to have their talented actors deliver my play in such a wonderful way.

Slant of Light is an excellent new theatre company creating forward-thinking, innovative, and relevant theatre through the different branches of the company that produce experimental new works, socially and politically relevant plays, and educational outreach that uses theatre to explore issues challenging today’s youth.

The projects that this company pursues surpass the traditional boundaries of theatre. They are not only focused on engaging the community about current issues but on giving the community a venue in which to respond to these issues. The Rail Against the Headlines and the New Play Reading Series present works by many Connecticut authors and SOL’s play M&Ms IN HEAVEN provokes conversations about body image and self-esteem in local middle schools.

SOL demands professionalism while encouraging people to step out of preconceived “theatre jobs” in order to more fully collaborate. This unique approach to contemporary theatre enlivens both the participants and the productions and gives ownership of the plays to every individual involved. I love working with this company and look forward to my continuing involvement and to SOL's growth and evolution.

I love Slant of Light and everything it stands for. It raises awareness of topics that most people don't talk about, but are very important to society. SOL provides a "safe space" and gives a voice to those of us who sometimes need that extra encouragment.

Slant of Light is an organization that has a lot of heart and soul. It is a mission-based organization that works towards that mission with every ounce of its being. They are a relatively new organization and are very much working to find their way, make their presence known, be financially viable, and make a difference in the world all at the same time. Any one of those would be a big goal to have on its own, but working toward all of them at the same time is nothing short of ambitious. They are doing a great job so far under the leadership of their artistic director, Stacy Ruttenberg. Her passion and efforts are nothing short of admirable. She has really tried to choose people and productions that are worthy of what Slant of Light is and hopes to be in the future...so far so good!

I'm a playwright and screenwriter whose work has been performed often in New York City and internationally. Several of my plays have had reading at Slant of Light Theatre Company. The atmosphere of the company is extremely warm and welcoming. The company can feel proud of its efficiency, hospitality and artistic insight. I very much enjoyed working with the Artistic Director of the company, Stacey Ruttenberg, and would not hesitate to work with them again in the future. They deserve all good things in the future.
