Two rarely-seen works paired in a limited engagement!
March 21 – April 1, 2018

Directed by Ricky Graham

AND TELL SAD STORIES OF THE DEATH OF QUEENS showcases barely contained desires and passions that erupt during a fateful Mardi Gras holiday. Candy, a successful drag queen, picks up a rough sailor and spoils him with money and attention. When he leaves her suddenly, it’s up to the two queens who live upstairs to offer consolation.

“Funny and moving” – New York Magazine

Directed by Austin Pendleton
In association with Playhouse Creatures Theatre Company

A brother-and-sister team of touring actors are abandoned in an isolated theatre by their troupe to face an unknown audience. Williams’ fugue of a play brilliantly intertwines fantasy and reality as the two enact an illusion within an illusion and come to face the darkest truths about themselves. Tennessee Williams called THE TWO-CHARACTER PLAY his “most beautiful” play since A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE. Irene Glezos (Big Easy nomination for her turn as “Lady” in ORPHEUS DESCENDING) returns to Southern Rep opposite Joseph W. Rodriguez.

April 18 – May 6, 2018
Regional Premiere

Their lives set on a nightmarish detour by civil war, the captive wives of a Liberian rebel officer form a hardscrabble sisterhood. With the arrival of a new girl who can read, their possibilities are quickly transformed. Drawing on reserves of wit and compassion, these defiant survivors ask: When the fog of battle lifts, could a different destiny emerge? ECLIPSED offers a chilling, humanizing and surprisingly funny portrait of transformation and renewal. This gripping play unearths the wreckage of war and celebrates the women who navigate and survive the most hostile circumstances.

“ECLIPSED . . . shines with a compassion that makes us see beyond the suffering to the indomitable humanity of its characters.” – Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

“Riveting. . . . A gut-wrenching saga told with poignancy and wit.” – Marilyn Stasio, Variety

“Stirring and sobering, and funnier than you’d expect” – Washington City Paper

By Robert Schenkkan
Directed by Aimée Hayes
May 16 – June 3, 2018
Regional Premiere

November, 1963.  An assassin’s bullet catapults Lyndon Baines Johnson into the presidency. A Shakespearean figure of towering ambition and appetite, this charismatic, conflicted Texan hurls himself into the passage of the Civil Rights Act – a tinderbox issue emblematic of a divided America – even as he campaigns for re-election in his own right and the recognition he so desperately wants. In Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning Robert Schenkkan’s vivid dramatization of LBJ’s first year in the Oval Office, means versus ends plays out on the precipice of modern America.

“Action-packed, thoroughly gripping … jaw-dropping political drama” – Variety

“…In Mr. Schenkkan’s sharply outlined portrait, Johnson spouts down-home truths, Southern-fried parables and the occasional blue tale like a geyser gushing oil in his native Texas.” – Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
