About the Troupe


The Rude Mechanicals were founded on July 25, 1999, and we’ve been exploring classical works for over 21 years since. In 2019, we partnered with the Greenbelt Arts Center as a resident theater troupe.

The Rudes have done all of the works of William Shakespeare but one: Cymbeline. Stay tuned as we work toward completing the canon!

Troupe meetings

The Rude Mechanicals hold troupe meetings approximately six times a year. All Rude Mechanicals are invited. We discuss the past show, the current show, and everything that affects the running of the troupe.
