Heritage Theater Ensemble is an organization of students committed to the continuation and evolution of Black theatre on Yale's campus and the New Haven community. We hope to be a contribution by bringing the rich voice of African American dramatists to fruition, while creating a unique atmosphere wherein students and supporters of Black theatre can network, learn, and come together in a comfortable environment.
