Professional actors, directors and writers play, practice and expand their skills at the Theatre Artists Workshop. TAW’s private Monday workshops are hotbeds of creativity, where members put up works-in-progress and get feedback and support.

Theater people live for those moments when they get to connect with a live audience.
To reach that point isn’t easy, though. Playwrights must believe their work is ready to be seen, actors need time to explore the characters they’ve been given and a director has to make sure his cast and the writer are on the same page.
For the past 33 years, the Theater Artists Workshop in Norwalk has been a place where stage people can work in private — with only their peers watching — until they’re ready for audiences and critics.

Take I-95 to Exit 16. At the end of the ramp, turn right if coming from the south (NYC), left if coming from the north (New Haven). You will be on East Avenue.
After the fourth traffic light, you’ll see a historic cemetery on the left. Go left, almost halfway around the cemetery (this is a traffic circle). Almost immediately, you’ll see a fork in the road – a bank is on your right. Bear right onto Gregory Avenue. Straight ahead is the Masonic Hall (the red brick building that houses TAW). Make an immediate left into the driveway of the theatre. Parking is in the back on the building.
