The Oasis Theatre Company was formed in 1988 with the mission to shed new light on old perceptions. After converting a manufacturing space into its home in the East Village, The Oasis Theatre produced more than 100 plays in a 10-year span. Productions ranged from contemporary playwrights such as Thornton Wilder, Tennessee Williams, Sam Shepard and David Mamet to classical masters such as Molière, Shaw, Shakespeare, Ibsen and Chekhov.
In 1999, The Oasis Theatre relocated to Claryville, New York. The Oasis received grants to perform children’s plays and conduct workshops with several schools serving Sullivan and Ulster counties. The Oasis produced a film based upon Ring Lardner’s "The Haircut" that premiered at the 2005 DIGit Festival. Recently, The Oasis produced a touring production of A Picasso by Jeffrey Hatcher.
