About Conch Shell Productions

OUR MISSION

At Conch Shell Productions, our mission is to develop, workshop and produce new plays and screenplays by writers of Caribbean heritage living in America who have an expanded view of reality. The blowing of the conch signifies purification, unification, victory over suffering...the hearing of the divine word. We believe that art can and should provoke social change. We are interested in new works that - like the blowing of the conch shell –  inspire audiences to redefine their reality and to find news ways of thinking when presented with challenges. Our productions create an opportunity for diverse audiences to explore and celebrate the unique ethnic/cultural diversity of the 28 multi-lingual Caribbean cultures that have immigrated to the Americas. Browse our pages to learn about our previous productions and festivals, and learn how you can support our mission to  infuse a new Caribbean-American voice in the American theater and film industry.


Conch Shell Productions is a Queens, New York-based organization and a member of  the Alliance of Residence Theatres/NY.
