Dancing at Lughnasa
By Brian Friel
Directed by Amber Page McGinnis
WHEN: September 4–October 7
Irish master storyteller Brian Friel casts a nostalgic and transportive Tony Award-winning tale of five unmarried sisters and a household framed by their strength and persistence, where “anything goes”—until it doesn’t. Step back in time to the summer of 1936, and a small Irish village, where a new radio, a homecoming, and the festive season for dance conjures a ravishing spell of ritual and remembrance.
By Lynn Nottage
Directed by Vincent M. Lancisi
WHEN: October 23–November 25
Having grown up side-by-side in small-town working-class America, best friends Tracey and Cynthia went from fun-loving schoolchildren to saloon-loving adults who work together on a steel manufacturing line. In a tight-knit community like this one, however, it takes but one fracture in its core for the breaking point of friendship to be seismically tested. Winner—2017 Pulitzer Prize for Drama!
The Importance of Being Earnest
By Oscar Wilde
Directed by Joseph W. Ritsch
WHEN: December 4—January 6
Oscar Wilde’s much-loved tour-de-farce receives an uproarious Resident Company revival with this landmark lampoon of Victorian norms—a jovial joyride of double lives, double entendres, and labyrinthine twists and turns. Courtships, class, and convention square off with handbags, puns, and perambulators in this deliciously quotable comedy—a madcap masterpiece about marriage, morality, and mistaken identity.
Everything is Wonderful
By Chelsea Marcantel
Directed by Noah Himmelstein
WHEN: January 29–March 3
Imagine a knock at the door from the hand complicit in a family tragedy: When the repentant driver in a fatal collision seeks forgiveness from the Amish family whose sons’ lives he claimed, faith guides them to welcome him into their community—and their home. But as inconvenient truths from the family’s past are discovered, can their outpouring of empathy be as limitless as it seems?
Dinner With Friends
By Donald Margulies
Directed by Vincent M. Lancisi
WHEN: March 12—April 14
Like any culinary trend, relationships are destined to evolve over time—but can the recipe of friendship retain its zest if the key ingredients begin to change? Two couples find themselves grappling with questions of loyalty, individuality, and commitment in Donald Margulies’ deliciously funny, sharply observed Pulitzer Prize-winning drama—celebrating its 20th anniversary with the time-tested flavor and richness of a classic dish.
Queens Girl in the World &
Queens Girl in Africa
By Caleen Sinnette Jennings
Directed by Paige Hernandez
WHEN: May 7—June 30 Repertory World Premiere
You can take the girl out of Queens, but, as is pitch-perfectly demonstrated in the first installments from Caleen Sinnette Jenning’s vivid, multichapter memoir, the Queens Girl is—delightfully—here to stay. Helen Hayes Award winners Dawn Ursula and Erika Rose both inject shining exuberance into the unforgettable, titular role (and dozens more characters) in this fresh, feel-good pair of shows about an everyday hero in our midst.
