“The one element that stands out all night (and one gets the feeling that it extends throughout the festival) is the energy and enthusiasm of all players involved. Everyone – actors, writers, directors and designers – truly believe in what they are doing and in the power of theatre. In the presence of such passion, one can’t help but feel inspired. The audience is also a strong believer in what is happening onstage. And with good reason – there is some excellent work to be found here.”  - Ben Ross, The Theatre Reader, review of InspiraTO’s 2015 Festival

We’re fired up for our 11th season. Kick start your muse. Change gears. Pivot. Adjust. Leave you comfort zone. Look to make a “shift”.
