Founded in 1981, Lorraine Hansberry Theatre is the San Francisco Bay Area's premiere African-American and multicultural theatre company.

Bringing The Art to the Audience

Bringing the Art to the Audience (BATA) is our popular staged reading series, presenting plays of interest to our audiences, some of which we may eventually mount as full productions.

Working with a wide variety of partner venues, BATA brings a live theatre experience to neighborhoods around San Francisco and the East Bay. Past and present partners include San Francisco's Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD), the African American Art and Culture Complex, The Eastbay Center for the Performing Arts in Richmond, The Oakland School for the Arts, Oakland's Joyce Gordon Gallery, Air Lounge, the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, and Oakland's Eastside Arts Alliance.
