Angels in America: The Millennium Approaches, by Tony Kushner, Sept. 25-Oct. 12. Winner of a Pulitzer Prize, the harrowing, uproarious, and magical Angels in America is a fiercely theatrical modern morality play and a landmark of the American stage.
Macbeth, by William Shakespeare, Nov. 13-Dec. 7. In his timeless tragedy of lethal ambition, the Bard’s Macbeth and his Lady ascend to the Scottish throne through deceit and murder, only to find that their appetite for power causes their undoing.
The Millionairess, by George Bernard Shaw, Jan. 22-Feb. 8. Shaw creates a marvelous satire of romance, capitalism, and integrity – or the lack thereof. Eppy, the Millionairess, has a gift for making money but none for finding love. A delightfully topsy-turvy view of disparity between the 1 percent and the other 99 percent makes Shaw’s witty play fascinatingly relevant.
Juno and the Paycock, by Sean O’Casey, March 5-March 22. Mixing drama and pathos with robust humor, O’Casey creates a vivid depiction of Irish working-class life during a nasty civil war in this modern classic. Jack Boyle, the “Paycock,” and Juno, the strong-willed and long-suffering matriarch of the family, muddle through the drinking, dreaming, and distraction of 1923 Dublin.
All in the Timing, by David Ives, April 15-May 10. This collection of brilliant short comedies takes the audience on a whirlwind tour-de-force of wit and wordplay, exploring the riotous ways in which language both unites and divides us.
The 39 Steps, adapted by Patrick Barlow, from the novel by John Buchan, from the movie of Alfred Hitchcock, April 23-May 10. A wildly inventive and hilarious homage to both the Hitchcock film and the great man himself, has four actors create almost 150 characters who romp, stomp, and roll through this raucous comedy of espionage, romance, and adventure.
