The Súgán Theatre Company's mission is to introduce to Boston audiences contemporary Irish and Celtic plays that present diverse perspectives of modern Ireland.  The Súgán also supports and fosters Irish theatrical and creative talent in the Boston area, and encourages the development of new writing for the theatre.

The meaning behind Súgán
Súgán (pronounced Sue Gone) is an Irish word that means a rope made of straw.  It also refers to a type of chair in which the seat is made of this rope.  The twisting rope represents the connection between Ireland and America, while the chair is an image of the storyteller.  The first play (written in Irish) of the Irish literary revival at the beginning of the 20th century was Douglas Hyde's Casadh an tSúgáin (translated as The Twisting of the Rope).
