The Wooster Group is a New York City-based experimental theater company known for creating numerous original dramatic works. It gradually emerged during 1975-1980 from Richard Schechner's The Performance Group (1967-1980) and took its name in 1980 (the 1975-1980 independent productions being retroactively attributed to the Group). The ensemble is since directed by Elizabeth LeCompte and has launched the careers of many actors, including founding member Willem Dafoe. The Group's home is the Performing Garage in SoHo.
