Artistic Director’s Message
Welcome to our 2013 Season
If you look carefully at the list of playwrights that we are producing this year, you will see that, as always, several are from deep within our original mandate period – Shaw, Wilde, Maugham, Glaspell, O’Neill. We revel in the work of these brilliant writers and in our unparalleled expertise in exploring and presenting them. We delight in bringing you their dazzling wit, their richly layered worlds, their memorable characters.
Now look at some of the other names – Friel, Stoppard, Murrell, Guettel. Here are some of Contemporary Theatre’s most illustrious artists and we are taking them on as spirited inheritors of Shaw’s legacy – writers who also delight in questioning assumptions, subverting expectations, creating compelling theatre that unites head and heart.
Then add the delightful words and music of Guys and Dolls and the delicious fantasy of Enchanted April to complete the range of theatrical experience.
We are a Contemporary Theatre that promotes smart, passionate discourse through a potent and diverse mix of plays from the past and present performed by our supremely talented Acting Ensemble.
The result is theatre that is entertaining, challenging, surprising and above all … unique.
Come and be a part of the conversation!
