HANG MAN

Written by Stacy Amma Osei-Kuffour
Directed by Ensemble Member Erica Weiss

Previews: February 09 – February 14
Opening: February 15
Closing: April 08

The community of a backwoods Southern town grapples with the murder of a Black man who is found hanging in a tree. As events unfold, the hanging mystifies the people of the community, forcing them to confront their complicity in this man’s horrific demise. Osei-Kuffour’s darkly comical, heartbreaking play, which recently made the prestigious 2017 Kilroy’s List, uses absurdity to explore racism, sexuality, and the parts of American history we would all like to forget.

HAMLET

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Guest Artist Monty Cole

Previews: June 01 – June 06
Opening: June 07
Closing: July 29

After the death of his dad, a young black man named Hamlet returns home to grieve and seek revenge. Fighting against the injustice of his father’s murder and the powers that want him out of the picture, Hamlet quickly loses power and sanity. Directed by guest artist Monty Cole, The Gift’s retelling of Shakespeare’s great tragedy will crack open the mind of one of western drama’s most fascinating and entertaining characters.

COSMOLOGIES

Written by Ensemble Member David Rabe
Directed by Artistic Director Michael Patrick Thornton

Previews: October 12 – October 17
Opening: October 18
Closing: December 09

Put the whimsical humor of the Keystone Cops and Bugs Bunny into a particle collider with the philosophy of Soren Kierkegaard and George Berkeley and you’re getting close to the style of this existential absurdist comedy from David Rabe. When a young man’s negotiation for a date goes very wrong, we are transported through kaleidoscopic worlds of possibilities, identities, and loves.
