2017 – 2018 Production Season

Our 2017/2018 production season includes the work of playwrights who come from markedly different parts of the country and have set their plays in very specific locations, often locations very familiar to them. It seems that each playwright wanted to reflect the voice of the Americans that he or she was familiar with or with whom they could identify. With this in mind we have chose “Voices Across America” as the theme for our 2017/2018 production season. Each of the works that we will be presenting this season has been written by a playwright expressing a very specific point of view using the voices of their characters from a unique and specific regional location.
