JANUARY 12 - FEBRUARY 12
By William Shakespeare Directed by Darko Tresnjak
From the director of our highly praised productions of Romeo & Juliet, Hamlet and Twelfth Night comes Shakespeare's zaniest comedy in which two sets of twins separated at birth find themselves in the same city on the same day. Each pair is unaware the other is nearby. This leads to a string of mistaken identities, which explode into outrageous slapstick, false accusations, crackling word play and even demonic possession. A rollicking farce of Shakespearean proportion!
FEBRUARY 23 - MARCH 19
By Caryl Churchill Directed by Elizabeth Williamson Unexpected trysts. Gender swaps. Role reversals. Power plays. Victorian repression clashes with liberal expression as we follow a British family from colonial Africa to London in the 1970s. Caryl Churchill’s provocative comedy explores the ever-changing world of sexual politics as it asks what it takes for each of us to reach our own Cloud 9.
MARCH 30 - APRIL 23
Written and Performed by James Lecesne Directed by Tony Speciale Original Music by Duncan Sheik
‘Absolute Brightness’ is about the disappearance of Leonard Pelkey, a flamboyant 14-year-old who has been bullied by his peers. Critically-acclaimed actor and writer James Lecesne (I Am My Own Wife at Hartford Stage, the writer of the Academy Award-winning Trevor) portrays a tough New Jersey detective, a withdrawn teenage girl, a brusque yet gentle hairdresser and a dozen other intriguing characters as they join forces to solve a mystery that will forever change their lives. The New Yorker called it, "A whodunit with a heart of gold.”
MAY 11 - June 11
By George Bernard Shaw Directed by Darko Tresnjak
Heartbreak House is Shaw’s comic and caustic masterpiece about the venerable Captain Shotover, his daughters, one liberal, the other conservative, and a household full of bickering guests in a home that's like a ship - or a country - charting uncertain waters. When the beautiful but impoverished Ellie Dunn arrives, she gets a lesson in romance, politics, and the art of navigation.
