Here is the list of productions for the 2018-2019 season:
SHE KILLS MONSTERS
By Qui Nguyen
September 20 – 30
A comedic romp into fantasy role-playing games and ’90s pop culture, Agnes Evans leaves her childhood home following the death of her teenage sister Tilly. Finding Tilly’s notebook, Agnes stumbles into a journey of discovery and adventure in the imaginary world that was Tilly’s refuge.
Book and lyrics adapted by David H. Bell • Music adapted and arranged by Rob Bowman
October 11 – 21
A hilarious update of Gilbert and Sullivan’s perennial classic, Hot Mikado combines Japanese design with popular American song and dance. In a land where laws sentence people to death for almost any indiscretion, jazz, blues and gospel are spoken fluently.
OF MICE AND MEN
By John Steinbeck
November 8 – 18
Drifters George and Lennie arrive at a ranch hoping to earn enough to buy their own place. When a woman is found dead, it’s obvious the man-child Lennie has accidentally killed her. George faces a moral dilemma: should he deal with Lennie before the ranchers find him?
OUR COUNTRY’S GOOD
By Timberlake Wertenbaker
January 24 – February 3
In 1789, a young lieutenant directs the first play ever staged in Australia. With only two copies of the text, a cast of convicts and a leading lady who may be hanged, conditions are hardly ideal. Winner of the 1988 Laurence Olivier Play of the Year Award.
THE STREET OF CROCODILES
Based on stories by Bruno Schulz • Adapted by Simon McBurney and Mark Wheatley Devised by the Company
February 21 – March 3
A feather falls from a book and consumes Joseph with childhood memories of woodworking, family dinners, an attic aviary and an upholstery shop. Inspired by the life and work of Polish writer Bruno Schulz, The Street of Crocodiles is a shifting mirage where people become birds, books fly and Death collects train tickets.
