Hoi Polloi is an OBIE-winning New York-based collaborative theater company formed in 2007 by director Alec Duffy. The company creates original work that strives to explore how we, as Americans, come together and how we fall apart. Hoi Polloi is also dedicated to collaborating with the most imaginative of today’s playwrights.
Hoi Polloi is an Ancient Greek phrase that means “the masses,” or “the people.”
Hoi Polloi’s productions have been supported by New York State Council for the Arts, the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, the Puffin Foundation, the Drama League and the Edith Lutyens and Norman Bel Geddes Foundation, as well as by many generous individuals who have contributed time and money to the creation of our pieces.
