The 2017-18 season at a glance…
Eugene de Kock was a paid white political assassin nick-named “Prime Evil” for his crimes against anti-apartheid activists. While serving his two life sentences, black psychologist Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela went to interview him hoping to seek humanity and forgiveness within the government-sanctioned monster. The thought-provoking interogation moves from clinical to intimate in a cell where fear and compassion coexist. Based on true events.

September 29-October 15, 2017

This spellbinding, romantic journey begins with a simple encounter between a man and a woman. But what happens next defies the boundaries of the world we think we know—delving into the infinite possibilities of their relationship and raising questions about the difference between choice and destiny.

December 1-17, 2017

Ruth and Jack, both in their mid-thirties, believe themselves perfectly suited to each other. But when Ruth suddenly mentions marriage, a subtle but ominous change is felt in their relationship. The mood at first is light-hearted and filled with brightly humorous lines, but later, no holds are barred, and the irreconcilable differences that were largely sublimated in the beginning now burst forth in full fury, leading to a monumental explosion and, apparently, Ruth and Jack’s acceptance of the sobering truth that there is more that divides than unites them.

February 16-25, 2018

A fundraiser for Outvisible! Join us as we present a different musical experience every weekend! We will start with Jason Robert Brown’s most famous and well-loved musical, The Last Five Years, then do a concert full of JRB’s songs from various musicals, solo albums, and lesser known works, and then end the festival with his hit song cycle, Songs for a New World. There will be something for everyone, and you and you can see something once or come back every weekend. Admission is by donation, and all proceeds will go toward funding for our 2018-19 season!

columbinus, a play sparked by the April 1999 massacre at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colo., is a meeting of fact and fiction that illuminates the realities of adolescent culture by exploring the events surrounding the shootings. The play weaves together excerpts from discussions with parents, survivors and community leaders in Littleton as well as police evidence to bring to light the dark recesses of American adolescence. When columbinus premiered in 2005 at the Round House Theatre, Peter Marks of the Washington Post called it, “An ambitious examination of the suburbanization of evil,” and the play went on to receive five Helen Hayes Award nominations including the Charles MacArthur Award for Outstanding New Play. Following the off-Broadway opening at New York Theatre Workshop one year later, Variety proclaimed: “This one comes straight from the gut—a wrenching return to the 1999 massacre at Columbine High School in which 12 students and a teacher were killed when two senior classmates went on a shooting rampage. The United States Theatre Project’s smart and sensitive treatment of the event, which traumatized a suburban Colorado community and shocked the entire country, stirs up thought and feeling in this clean ensemble production, drawn from interviews, public records and the private diaries of the shooters.” All proceeds benefit:


June 22-23, 2018

The scene is the living room/kitchen of a small house on an isolated country road, which is shared by Jessie and her mother. Jessie’s father is dead; her loveless marriage ended in divorce; her absent son is a petty thief and ne’er-do-well; her last job didn’t work out and, in general, her life is stale and unprofitable. As the play begins Jessie asks for her father’s service revolver and calmly announces that she intends to kill herself. At first her mother refuses to take her seriously, but as Jessie sets about tidying the house and making lists of things to be looked after, her sense of desperate helplessness begins to build. In the end, with the inexorability of genuine tragedy, she can only stand by, stunned and unbelieving, as Jessie quietly closes and locks her bedroom door and ends her profound unhappiness in one fatal, stunning and deeply disturbing moment—a moment never to be forgotten by those who have witnessed, and come to understand, her plight.
