The Language Archive by Julia Cho directed by Ned Farley February 28-March 15 (Included)
George is a man consumed with preserving and documenting the dying languages of far-flung cultures. Closer to home, though, language is failing him. He doesn't know what to say to his wife, Mary, to keep her from leaving him, and he doesn't recognize the deep feelings that his lab assistant, Emma, has for him. "However whimsicaleven fantasticit becomes, it affirms life no matter how melancholy." Bloomberg News. "[THE LANGUAGE ARCHIVE's] dialogue is a tour de forcethe gulf between what's said and what isn't is rarely described and traversed with as much power as it is here. What makes this achievement more significant still is that the play itself is in no way ordinarypassionatewise and wonderful." Talkin' Broadway. "Uniquely blends absurdist farce with sentimental comedy." LA Times. "Quirky, but ravishingly well-written piece that is smart, funny, deep and tender." OC Weekly.
Good People by David Lindsay Abaire directed by K. Sandy O'Brien May 9-24 (Included)
Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo, where this month's paycheck covers last month's bills, and where Margie Walsh has just been let go from yet another job. Facing eviction and scrambling to catch a break, Margie thinks an old fling who's made it out of Southie might be her ticket to a fresh new start. But is this apparently self-made man secure enough to face his humble beginnings? Margie is about to risk what little she has left to find out. With his signature humorous glow, Lindsay-Abaire explores the struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakeable hopes that come with having next to nothing in America. "Wonderfulthis isn't a manipulative tear-jerker or a simplistic diatribe. GOOD PEOPLE is poignant, brave and almost subversive in its focus on what it really means to be down on your luck." NY Post. "David Lindsay-Abaire pays his respects to his old South Boston neighborhood with this tough and tender play about the insurmountable class divide between those who make it out of this blue-collar Irish neighborhood and those who find themselves left behind. The scrappy characters have tremendous appeal, and the moral dilemma they grapple withis it strength of character or just a few lucky breaks that determines a person's fate?holds special significance in today's harsh economic climate." Variety.
Why Torture is Wrong and the People Who Love Them by Christopher Durang directed by Ned Farley July 11-26 (Included)
Christopher Durang turns political humor upside down with this raucous and provocative satire about America's growing homeland "insecurity." WHY TORTURE IS WRONG, AND THE PEOPLE WHO LOVE THEM tells the story of a young woman suddenly in crisis: Is her new husband, whom she married when drunk, a terrorist? Or just crazy? Or both? Is her father's hobby of butterfly collecting really a cover for his involvement in a shadow government? Why does her mother enjoy going to the theatre so much? Does she seek mental escape, or is she insane? Honing in on our private terrors both at home and abroad, Durang oddly relieves our fears in this black comedy for an era of yellow, orange and red alerts. "Christopher Durang, our Poet Laureate of the Absurd, has written a smashing new play." NY Observer. "You may laugh yourself silly at this silly symphony whose every movement is a scherzo." Bloomberg News. "Is there a living playwright more willing to take on the big-picture questions with such unwavering trust in the power of the truly silly?" NY Newsday.
The Fantasticks by Tom Jones & Harvey Schmidt directed by K. Sandy 0'Brien September 19-October 4 (Included)
Talk about a time-proven audience-pleaser! "Try To Remember" a time when this romantic charmer wasn't enchanting audiences around the world. THE FANTASTICKS is the longest-running production of any kind in the world, and with good reason: at the heart of its breathtaking poetry and subtle theatrical sophistication is a purity and simplicity that transcends cultural barriers. The result is a timeless fable of love that manages to be nostalgic and universal at the same time.
And Introducing Our First New Works Project
Black Holes and Big Words by David Mayer director TBA November 14-22 (Season Extra)
Co-existing in a New York City where their world views are
just bizarre enough to bond them (or maybe not), several over-educated hipsters join forces to try to grow up and confront their insecurities, threatening the delicate social balance they've created and shaking one man's bored-too-early life to the core. And that's just their Thursday night. As put-upon Gregor allows himself to fall further and further into crazy circumstances, Black Holes & Big Words takes a lighthearted look at how we connect and don't, the expectations we place on love and friendship, and whether human nature separates us from or reflects a connection to nature. It smacks our assumptions in the head with lots o' laughs along the way.
