Trinidad Theatre Workshop was founded by 1992 Nobel Laureate Derek Walcott in 1959. In its inaugural season, the Workshop presented The Blacks by Jean Genet, Eric Roach's Belle Fanto, and The Road by Wole Soyinka. The company continues to produce works by Walcott and others (including such diverse dramatists as Dario Fo, Tennessee Williams, Anton Chekhov, Ntozake Shange, Neil Simon, and Athol Fugard among many others), and in recent years has offered educational programs and community outreach in the region in addition to its production schedule.

The Trinidad Theatre Workshop's stated mission is to present dramatic and musical arts of the highest quality, while contributing to the community via educational and outreach works and supporting regional artists, including the promotion of new West Indian works.
