About Agency

As the COVID pandemic restrictions are lifted, a young woman, Yvonne, begins her new job at a company's marketing department. Thanks to her worldly coworkers, she soon discovers the true meaning of the words “education”, “freedom” and “agency”. Unexpectedly though, Yvonne’s journey to self-empowerment is not a smooth ride.

American Theatre of Actors, Inc.

American Theatre of Actors, Inc. (ATA) was founded in 1976 by James Jennings to promote the development of new playwrights, directors and actors, and to provide them a creative atmosphere in which to work. The plays are dramas, comedies, and hybrids, dealing with the social and ethical problems of contemporary society.

12,000 actors have worked at ATA including Dennis Quaid, Bruce Willis, Dan Lauria, Chazz Palminteri, Danny Aielo, David Morse, Edie Falco and Kathryn Hahn. Our productions are sometimes grouped as 'festivals,' such as a Playwrights Festival or a Directors Festival. In 2016 we began an initiative to feature women in theatre as directors and playwrights, today this is our WIT! (Women in Theatre) program.
