none too fragile theatre originates from Akron, OH and has become a name synonymous with consistent quality theatrical productions in the Midwest. We are committed to producing theatre of the highest quality, choosing material that stands out as thought-provoking and challenging to both the artists and audience. Our goal is to provoke and stir dialogue, initiate change in our community, attract professional artists to Akron, provide support to local artists, & give a voice to the great playwrights of this generation, distinguishing Akron as a reputable destination for high-quality theatre.
Imagine the best meal of your life is prepared for you and placed behind the window of a building to which you can't enter. You can see it, maybe even smell it, but you can't taste it. Great theatre feeds the soul, yet accessibility remains an issue.
Given the historic nature of our new home, ADA compliant laws had not been in place when the building was constructed. none too fragile is committed to providing quality theatre for ALL, including those with mobility issues and special needs. It is with this at the forefront of our minds that we wish to move forward with plans to adapt our entryways and exits, add safety lighting, as well as installing a lift in our lobby to accomodate those needs.
At this current time, patrons with mobility challenges are limited in their interaction with the rest of our patrons, as they are relegated to using an alternate entrance that has no access to our lobby. A large part of the none too fragile experience is the sense of community and family before and after performances, combined with the dialogue that is created from the content of the productions. We look forward to extending that complete experience to our patrons with mobility challenges.
Let's Make it Happen!!!
