Company History

Inevitable Theatre Company was founded by Artistic Director Robert Neblett in Dallas, TX, in 2007.

Its first production, Jordan by Anna Reynolds and Moira Buffini, starred Sherry Ward and was performed at the 2007 Out of the Loop Festival in cooperation with Mental Health America, and later at Baylor University as a benefit performance for a local women's shelter. 

ITC followed up Jordan with Bert V. Royal's Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead at the Bath House Cultural Center. Voted "Gutsiest Production of 2007" by Pegasus News and nominated for several DFW Column Awards, Dog Sees God sold out the majority of its run to standing ovations. The production was co-sponsored by the local chapter of GLSEN in order to bring greater awareness to issues surrounding bullying, LGBT youth, and suicide.

In spring 2008, the company performed Surface TENsion, a series of ten-minute plays, at the Out of the Loop Festival.

When the economy took a downturn in mid-2008, the company went on hiatus.

But, ever true to its name, ITC has resurfaced again as an inevitable part of the arts scene in St. Louis, MO, debuting with the regional premiere of Unsuspecting Susan by Stewart Permutt, starring local favorite Donna Weinsting in the title role.
