Southern Rep’s first live production after the pandemic closing is The Thanksgiving Play, a critically acclaimed satirical comedy.  A troupe of terminally “woke” teaching artists scramble to create a pagent that somehow manages to celebrate both Thanksgiving and Native American Heritage Month.  Written by Larissa FastHorse and directed by Jeanette Godoy, this production highlights the cultural significance and appropriation of the Thanksgiving holiday.   Read More About The Thanksgiving Play

Dec. 8-19 At Loyola University 

Southern Rep Launches 21-22 Mainstage Season


A Message To Our Valued Community

Southern Rep is back live on stage!  Our first post-covid production, The Thanksgiving Play, is at Loyola University Dec. 8-19.   Soon, we will announce our entire 2021-22 Mainstage season of innovative, illuminating productions.  

The pandemic months were a time of change for Southern Rep, as they were for everyone.  We’ve moved from our former Bayou Road location, and we’re bringing on new leadership.   We’ve launched a new comprehensive three-year strategic plan to make Southern Rep stronger and more sustainable, and we have embraced an anti-racist action plan that commits to equity, diversity, inclusion and accessibility in all areas of our organization.

What hasn’t changed is Southern Rep’s commitment to be an artist-driven, community-centered organization that reflects the diversity, vibrancy and creative energy of the city we call home. 

Join Southern Rep in celebrating the joys of live theater and coming together with others to enjoy and support new plays and artists. 

We hope to see you soon. 

“Southern Rep has consistently proven to be among the Crown Jewels of New Orleans theater.”  THEODORE P. MAHNE, THE TIMES-PICAYUNE
