Arís statement to BIPOC artists and our theater community.

Next from Arís: BURNS NIGHT!


“Should auld acquaintance be forgot . . . .”

It's time for Burns Night 2022!

Join us in person for our 7th annual celebration of the life and works of the great Scottish writer and poet, Robert Burns. Through music and poetry we’ll celebrate his love for Scotland, his musings on nature and romance, and of course his humor.

The event will feature the talents of (in alphabetical order): Bryan Davis, Olivia Sloan Ivey, K. Ken Johnston, Ryan LaMotte, and Judy & Winslow Thomas.

So join us as we honor “the best laid plans of mice and men” which, we can assure you, will not “gang aft agley” at 7:30pm on Tuesday, January 25th at AWS Distillery at The Battery (that’s by Truist Field).

Tickets are $25 and can be purchased at the door.

Coming Soon from Arís

ULYSSES by Dermot Bolger. June 2022 at 7 Stages. James Joyce's famous novel comes to life on the stage as only Arís can do it!

Our Mission

Our mission is to bring the theatrical and literary traditions, mythology, and storytelling from and about Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England to Atlanta. Aris presents full productions and staged readings of contemporary and classical plays. We celebrate annual events such as Burns Night and Bloomsday. We participate in other events that feature the literature, poetry, and music of the British Isles. Aris is committed to breathing fresh life into timeless classics as well as introducing our audience to the work of new and emerging contemporary playwrights.
