Award-winning playwright Glen Berger weaves a whimsical, poetic narrative of love-struck soldiers, mermaids, unicorns, a contemplative goat, and a hapless inventor attempting to devise a self-flushing toilet, all on a fantastical quest for the meaning of existence. Set in a small corner of Ireland circa 1918 and suffused with music from World War I, O Lovely Glowworm is a joyously inventive celebration of humanity.

"Your formal training at A.C.T. is demanding, individual, and intense and is designed to refine your sense of theatrical truth by tuning your human instrument—your voice, body, intellect, and imagination."
Melissa Smith, Conservatory Director
A.C.T. seeks to develop the artist in every actor. We cultivate educated men and women of the theater with a critical sense who will energize and advance performance in America. Our training prepares actors to succeed in all aspects of the profession, but our primary goal is to prepare artists for a lifelong investment in the theater.
Our curriculum combines rigorous training in the practical disciplines of acting with the study, rehearsal, and performance of classical and contemporary works drawn from the world repertoire. We believe that actors who have an intellectual and visceral grasp of dramatic literature, who recognize a relationship between new and classical work, are uniquely prepared to collaborate in the development of new dramatic forms.
