Cornerstone Theater Company

36 Yesses

36 Yesses is an exploration of what it means to commit when everything is in play, and to believe when nothing is out of the question.    

What have we learned, created, questioned, rejected, redefined, and embraced in recent years? Where are we going as a community, as a country?  Can hope lead the way? 

Join us for a theatrical event in process, a struggle of a journey toward consensus in values, in art, in life.
