2017-2018 Season of Plays

M_Butterfly

M. Butterfly

By David Henry Hwang | Directed by Vincent M. Lancisi
Sept. 6 through Oct. 8

East meets west. Fact meets fiction. Illusion meets reality. When a powerful French diplomat becomes enchanted with a divine Peking opera star, little can quell the thirst of their intoxicating desire, but this diva is hiding more than her true identity. Celebrating its 30th anniversary this season, David Henry Hwang’s torrid and timeless Tony Award-winning M. Butterfly brings hide-and-seek to the stage in a gripping fable that proves the allure of fantasy and the power of obsession are a recipe for betrayal.

Intimate_Apparel

Intimate Apparel

By Lynn Nottage | Directed by Tazwell Thompson
Oct. 18 through Nov. 19

Wearing her heart on her sleeve while sewing intimates for her clientele, Esther is the talented African-American seamstress in turn-of-the-century New York who has built a savings for herself making beautiful undergarments, while earnestly daydreaming of new beginnings, romantic possibilities, and the lingering affection she shares with a Jewish fabric merchant. But when an egregious deception cuts short heartfelt desires, can class, culture, and circumstance outmatch the strength of human spirit? Inspired by a true story, Intimate Apparel is a heart-rending contemporary work in the style of an enduring classic, from the first female playwright to win two Pulitzers.

Intimate Apparel also is the featured production for UMB Night at Everyman Theatre.

The_Revolutionists

The Revolutionists

By Lauren Gunderson
Dec. 6 through Jan. 7

East Coast premiere!

Greetings from the French Revolution — where heads will roll. When you put former queen Marie Antoinette, assassin Charlotte Corday, playwright Olympe de Gouges, and Caribbean spy Marianne Angelle in a room together, literally ANYTHING can happen — especially big laughs! France’s fight for equality and freedom propels itself to modern times with this bold, brave, and blisteringly funny new work about feminism, legacy, and standing up for one’s beliefs. Who runs the world? The jury’s still out, but these women sure as hell changed it.

Long_Days_Journey_Into_Night

Long Day’s Journey Into Night

By Eugene O'Neill | Directed by Donald Hicken
Jan. 31 through March 4

What begins as an ordinary summer day at the Connecticut home of the Tyrone family morphs into a night filled with foggy, drink-laced demons where long-buried secrets are revealed and, once exposed, cannot be ignored. A long-revered showcase for tour-de-force performances, Eugene O’Neill’s Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning masterpiece (published posthumously) lays bare what we all know to be true: The ardor of familial love cannot always protect you. Long Day’s Journey Into Night is an autobiographical insight into its late, legendary playwright and a compassionately brutal look at one family’s struggle to fight for and love itself.

 

Aubergine

Aubergine

By Julia Cho | Directed by Vincent M. Lancisi
March 14 through April 15

Mid-Atlantic premiere! In association with the Olney Theatre Center.

When words fail, a home-cooked meal transcends differences in this touching story of intergenerational connectedness, forgiveness, and the sweetest spice of life: love. As a Korean family struggles to relate across emotional and cultural divides, it’s the ingredients they share in common that lead to understanding. A perceptive and lyrical exploration of the act of cooking as a form of expression, Aubergine is a mouthwatering meditation on the beauty of life where hope is no mere ingredient — it’s the main course.

The_Book_of_Joseph

The Book of Joseph

By Karen Hartman | Based on the life of Joseph A. Hollander and his family | Directed by Noah Himmelstein
May 9 through June 10

East Coast premiere!

Like so many great mysteries, it all began in an attic with a dusty old suitcase. The discovery of a stash of letters stamped with Swastikas opens clues to an untold family history spanning multiple generations in The Book of Joseph — the gripping true story of resilience and truth-tracking determination spanning Baltimore and beyond. Richard Hollander’s book, Every Day Lasts a Year: A Jewish Family’s Correspondence From Poland, is brought to the stage in this mesmerizing new adaptation that restores a family’s uncharted legacy — celebrated by revelation and remembrance.
