The company was founded in 1999 by Christian Barry, Anthony Black, Andrea Dymond, Zach Fraser, and Angela Gasparetto; a group of emerging artists seeking a structure under which to create and produce work. The company was incorporated in May of 2000 under the name Bunnies in the Headlights Theatre and received status as a registered charity later that year.
As the artists evolved, so did the company. In 2004 Barry & Black took over as artistic co-directors, refined the company’s artistic vision and reinvented the company as 2b theatre.
2b has staged 17 productions, including 13 world premieres. Since 2004, our work has been nominated for 53 Theatre Nova Scotia Robert Merritt awards, including six nominations for Outstanding Production. In 2010, 2b was awarded the Scotland Herald Angel Award for their production of Invisible Atom at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. In 2008 2b took home three Merritt Awards (Outstanding Director, Outstanding Lighting Design, and Outstanding Actor). At home and abroad 2b has earned a reputation for work that is innovative and precise, intelligent and moving.
