Current Theatre Season

2019-2020

The Heidi Chronicles

By Wendy Wasserstein / Directed by Robin Roberts
October 3, 4 & 5 at 8 p.m. and October 6 at 2 p.m.

Comprised of a series of interrelated scenes, this Pulitzer Prize-winning play traces the coming of age of Heidi Holland as she tries to find her way in a rapidly changing world. Starting in 1989, we see her evolution, from a high school student to successful art historian. Along the way, she begins a romantic relationship with a glib publisher and a more meaningful friendship with a pediatrician.  She also navigates encounters with other women, now much changed, including those who were part of her childhood and college years.

Machinal

By Sophie Treadwell / Directed by Nicolas Crisafulli
November 14, 15 & 16 at 8 p.m. and November 17 at 2 p.m.

When it premiered in 1928, this classic American play was praised for its innovative, expressionistic style and staccato dialogue. It chronicles the life of a young woman who is victimized and dehumanized by everyone around her. Playwright and journalist Sophie Treadwell based her drama on the real-life sensational Ruth Snyder-Judd Gray murder trial.

The Wolves

By Sarah DeLappe / Directed by Nicolas Crisafulli
March 12, 13 & 14 at 8 p.m. and March 15 at 2 p.m.

As an indoor soccer team goes through a series of warm-up and practice sessions, its members navigate big questions and wage tiny battles with all the vim and vigor of a pack of adolescent warriors. This portrait of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for nine American girls who just want to score some goals premiered in 2016 and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize.  NOTE: Audience discretion is advised.

Spike Heels

By Theresa Rebeck  / Directed by Chelsea Anderson
April 30, May 1, 2 at 8 p.m. and May 3 at 2 p.m.

Pygmalion goes awry in this contemporary comedy of manners, which explores sexual harassment, misplaced amour, and the possibility of a four-sided love triangle. The combatants are a sexy, volatile young woman, a lawyer, a writer, and a fiancée in sensible shoes. The setting is Boston, the ending is happy, and laugher abounds.

NOTE: Audience discretion is advised.
