_Season of Plays for 2016-2017
Hay Fever by Noel Coward
Directed by Brenda Hubbard
Kick off your holiday festivities with Noel Cowards hilarious comedy of bad manners. Hay Fever has been a favorite among theatergoers ever since it first dazzled London’s East End in 1925. Retired stage star Judith Bliss’ her novelist husband and their two bohemian adult children have each invited house guests for the weekend, but as the Blisses indulge their artistic eccentricities in a hilarious whirlwind of flirtation and histrionics, the guests begin to wonder if they have landed in a madhouse and if they can survive with their own wits intact.
Previews November 30 & December 1, runs December 2-18
In the Blood by Suzan-Lori Parks
Directed by Victor Mack
Hester la Negrita is a homeless single mother of five who dreams of finding beauty and love for her family despite her poverty-stricken life. As she struggles to defy the odds, she runs into a series of harsh and unexpected obstacles. In this modern day riff on Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter, Pulitzer Prizewinning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks asks who has the right to the American Dream.
Previews February 8-9, runs February 10-26
This Random World by Steven Dietz
Directed by Beth Harper
West Coast Premier
We want to believe that serendipity brings us together, that luck is available to all, and that randomness is just a myth, but, is it? Mining the comedy of missed connections, This Random World asks the serious question of how often we travel parallel paths through the world without noticing. Do we see what is right in front of us? Are we capable of that? From an ailing woman who plans one final trip, to her daughter planning one great escape and her son falling prey to a prank gone wrong, this funny, intimate, and heartbreaking play explores the lives that may be happening just out of reach of our own. A hit at the 2016 Humana Festival.
Previews April 5-7, runs April 7-23
