The Living Theatre (founded in 1946)

The Livings Theatre is an experimental theatre group that was founded by Judith Malina and Julian Beck. They are influenced by the writing of Antonin Artaud and their works often promote Anarchist and Pacifist thinking. Their 1959 production of THE CONNECTION, a play about jazz and heroin addiction, gained them national fame. Their most famous piece is arguably their 1968 piece PARADISE NOW.
