rice & beans theatre was founded in 2010 by Pedro Chamale and Derek Chan.

We dedicate ourselves to defining the nature and function of a contemporary theatre,
while telling stories of where we come from and where we are going.

rice & beans theatre focuses on the creation, incubation, and production of original performances. 
Through countless hours of vigorous experimentation, with intimate passion and delicate violence,
we write, adapt, and devise work that is relevant and artistically responsible.

We believe that theatre should be accessible, honest, uncompromising, and personal.
