More than 400 plays by some of the world's top playwrights have made their world premieres there since Actors Theatre of Louisville founded it in 1976.

This year's apprentice show, Sleep Rock Thy Brain, is a suite of three one-acts that all use brain research and stage flying effects to explore the experience of sleep and dreams.
