2018 - 2019 Season

A Doll’s House, Part 2
by Lucas Hnath
October 2 – 6, 2018 at 7:30pm
Saturday Matinee October 6 at 2pm

Henrik Ibsen’s original 1879 play is the jumping off point for Lucas Hnath to explore the fate of one of dramatic literature’s most infamous protagonists.  When Nora walked out the door and slammed it behind her, the world shook. Ibsen’s play was banned and judged as immoral because of its depiction of a woman walking out of a marriage and away from her children.  Nora’s return after fifteen years is the impetus for A DOLL’S HOUSE, PART 2 . . . and oh what a wonderful return it is!  Hnath’s use of contemporary language sets up a dark comedy that invites the audience to ponder the similarities between 1894 and 2018.

Tartuffe
by Moliere
Translated by Christopher Hampton
November 13 – 17, 2018 at 7:30pm

Orgon's family desperately tries to shake some sense in him once he invites the hypocrite Tartuffe into their home. Everyone can see through Tartuffe's theatrical sanctimony, but can they get the head of the household to see through his crazy antics before they lose everything? One of theatre's most famous comedy is brought to life in a completely new light in this deeply southern gospel influenced production.
