For over 30 years, audiences and artists have joined City Lit to celebrate the power and beauty of the spoken written word. City Lit was founded in 1979 by Arnold Aprill, David Dillon and Lorrell Wyatt. At the time, it was the only theatre in the nation devoted to stage adaptations of literary material. City Lit has explored fiction, non-fiction, poetry, biography, essays and drama in performance, and presented a wide array of voices, from classic writers Edith Wharton and P.G. Wodehouse to contemporary writers Alice Walker and Raymond Carver.
