Welcome to Arís!

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.

About Arís

So, what exactly is Arís?

Arís is the Irish word for "Again!"  Like the phoenix that is the symbol of the city of Atlanta, Aris (say "ah-REESH") means to bring back with dramatic fire the Celtic theatrical traditions once so richly enjoyed here. Use it as you would "Encore!"

Officially launched in June 2013, Arís was founded by nine talented and enthusiastic members of the Atlanta theatre community, with a collective total of over 200 years experience in the performing arts. To find out more about this ambitious and talented group of people that have founded Arís, visit our Founders page.

We plan to have you shouting Arís soon!
