Anastasis Theatre Co.

The mission of the Anastasis Theatre Co. is to lift unheard voices in our community. Our plays bring together diverse groups to highlight the beauty of our differences and reveal the common thread of our humanity.

The play More Than a Number breaks down the walls between incarcerated citizens and the outside world. Originally written and performed by a group of men at the Nebraska State Penitentiary, this play shatters misconceptions and reveals the common thread of our humanity. Anastasis Theatre Co. will tour More Than a Number to partner sites throughout Omaha and Lincoln, featuring a cast of formerly incarcerated citizens and professional actors. Each performance will be followed by a community conversation, and audience members will be invited to join Anastasis in a forum on criminal justice reform at a later date.
