MORNINGSIDE                                               

New Comedy

By Topher Payne

September 11-23, 2018

This shrewd and razor-sharp play takes us to a sunny, spring afternoon in the Morningside neighborhood of Atlanta where different generations are thrown together to test the bonds of family and friendship. Imagine: a baby shower, nine women with secrets, and a case of champagne. This is about to be the MOTHER of all baby showers. The Women meets Steel Magnolias meets The Real Housewives…what could possibly go wrong? “Hilarious spin on modern motherhood”

 

HELL IN HIGH WATER

American Classic/Mississippi Classic

By Marcus Gardley

October 23 – November 4, 2018

Set in Greenville Mississippi, On the Levee is an epic musical play that uproots the almost forgotten Mississippi flood of 1927, the worst natural disaster in U.S. history pre-Katrina. At the heart of the story are two fathers and sons: LeRoy Percy, a white cotton farmer, and his poet-son Will, and Joe Goodin, an African-American bootblack and his son James, a self-proclaimed lady’s man. Stranded on the levee with 180,000 other black folk Joe tries to preserve his way of life while James hopes to inspire change for the black people who are stranded. Likewise, LeRoy attempts to preserve his labor force by keeping the blacks in town but his son Will challenges his authority and what ensues is more destructive than any flood. “On the Levee is a powerful, illuminating history that reaffirms the enduring spirit of hope in a time of great poverty and devastation.”

 

THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK

Contemporary

by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett

Newly adapted by Wendy Kesselman

January 29-February 10, 2019

In this transcendently powerful new adaptation, Anne Frank emerges from history a living, intensely gifted young girl, who confronts her rapidly changing life and the increasing horror of her time with astonishing honesty, wit, and determination. An impassioned drama about the lives of eight people hiding from the Nazis in a concealed storage attic, The Diary Of Anne Frank captures the claustrophobic realities of their daily existence— their fear, their hope, their laughter, their grief. Each day of these two dark years, Anne’s voice shines through: “When I write I shake off all my cares. But I want to achieve more than that. I want to be useful and bring enjoyment to all people, even those I’ve never met. I want to go on living even after my death!” “This is a new adaptation for a new generation.”

Pulitzer Prize Drama

By Lynn Nottage

April 23 –May 5, 2019

Filled with warm humor and tremendous heart, Sweat tells the story of a group of friends who have spent their lives sharing drinks, secrets and laughs while working together on the factory floor. But when layoffs and picket lines begin to chip away at their trust, the friends find themselves pitted against each other in a heart-wrenching fight to stay afloat. “An extraordinarily moving drama throbbing with heartfelt life.”

 

BRIGHT STAR        

Musical

Music, Book, & Story by Steve Martin; Music, Lyrics, & Story by Edie Brickell

May 28 – June 9, 2019

Inspired by a real event and featuring the Grammy-nominated score by Steven Martin and Edie Brickell, Bright Star tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and ’40s. When literary editor Alice Murphy meets a young soldier just home from World War II, he awakens her longing for the child she once lost. Haunted by their unique connection, Alice sets out on a journey to understand her past – and what she finds has the power to transform both of their lives. “An uplifting theatrical journey that holds you tight in its grasp, Bright Star is as refreshingly genuine as it is daringly hopeful.”
