2014 - 2015 MAINSTAGE SEASON


National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere
BROOMSTICK

by John Biguenet
Directed by Amy Holtcamp
Featuring Liann Pattison

October 4 - November 2
Previews: October 1 - 3


In a remote cabin deep in the woods, an old crone spins a spellbinding tale about her life, her love affairs, and her cursed reputation. Mischievously funny, dark, and just in time for Halloween, BROOMSTICK is the story of one woman who hovers in the shadowy space between good and evil, fantasy and reality, and who, some say, may be a little too hungry for justice.



Regional Premiere
DETROIT
by Lisa D'Amour
Directed by Aimée Hayes
Featuring Jessica Podewell, Laura Friedmann, Todd D'Amour, and Mike Harkins


May 30 - June 21
Preivews: May 27 - 29

In a first-ring suburb just outside a city that might be Detroit, Ben and Mary see sudden signs of life at the deserted house next door and invite their new neighbors, Sharon and Kenny, over for a barbecue. As the action unfolds we learn that Sharon and Kenny met at rehab, neither is employed, and they don't own a stick of furniture. In the Regional Premiere of the Pulitzer Prize and Susan Smith Blackburn Award-nominated, DETROIT, a quintessentially American backyard party quickly becomes something funnier -- and more dangerous, too.

SUDDENLY,
LAST SUMMER

By Tennessee Williams
Directed by Aimée Hayes
Featuring Brenda Currin


March 7 - April 5

Set in the Garden District of New Orleans, Tennessee Williams' masterwork, SUDDENLY LAST SUMMER, follows a wealthy society matron, Violet Venable, who attempts to lobotomize her niece Catherine in a struggle to cover up the truth about her son Sebastian's sudden death. When her doctor tries to unravel the mystery, will Catherine share the shocking and terrible truth of what happened, or succumb to the pressure to protect the legacy of a powerful family?

Presented in partnership with the Tennessee Williams / New Orleans Literary Festival, SUDDENLY LAST SUMMER raises bold questions about mental illness, sexuality, guilt, brutality, and the search for truth.
