From the Artistic Directors At Theatre Horizon we engage our community through relevant and compelling theatre. Thousands of audience members have discovered that you can see Philadelphia’s finest actors on Theatre Horizon’s stage, for a fraction of the price of going downtown. Safe and easy parking is readily available--both in Septa’s parking garage one block away-and on both sides of DeKalb Street. Since our arrival, Norristown renamed DeKalb Street “Arts Hill,” putting Theatre Horizon at the heart of Norristown’s very own avenue of the arts.

by Keith Bunin Directed by Matthew Decker

Ed Renninger and Paul Felder in Fat Pig, 2010

Love dramatic plays like Fat Pig? Spark conversation at The Credeaux Canvas.

Struggling artists swindle an art collector in this powerful drama set in a paint-splattered East Village apartment. Exploring a complex labyrinth of love, friendship and intimacy, Bunin’s deft dialogue drives this beautifully constructed play to its soul-shattering climax. This play is mature in content.
