Dorsey Wright was, for a brief time, part of a not-for-profit theater group based in New York City, called the Theater for the Forgotten. The project was run by founders Akila Couloumbis and Beverly Rich, funded by The National Council for the Arts and several other sources. The brainchild of Akila Couloumbis, the group put on plays for the institutionalized, ranging from prisons and drug rehab to hospitals in six states for thirty years, a long run for a creative non-profit organization. Some of the plays were written in collaboration with the theater groups Dream 76 and Forever My Earth. More of them were adapted with playwrights' permissions to the intended audience.
