Josh Cragun

Company Position: 
co-Artistic Director

Josh Cragun is a writer who fell into the company of theater artists at a young and impressionable age, and fortunately, has never been quite the same. This led to a series of questionable decisions, one of which took place in 2001 when he formed nimbus with a fellow writer known as Cockroach. He has been creating new theater with the company ever since. In that time he has written ten original works of theater for the company. His producton of Tesla was the company's best selling show ever, and his adaptation of The Lower Depths was named selected by Minnesota Playlist critic Sophie Kerman as her favorite of that year. In addition he has written and directed, as well as designed video, costumes, properties and sets for the company over the years. In one way or another, he has contributed to 33 of the company's productions.
