Animal Farm by Andrew Periale, based on George Orwell’s novella

PRODUCTION SPONSOR: NORMA DAVENPORT

Animal Farm

An exciting new adaptation gives us a fresh look at the classic story of rebellion and assimilation. When the animals decide that they can run the farm better than the farmers who keep them, they set out to create a utopian world in which everyone is equal. Except that some are more equal than others. In a world where the political pendulum is constantly swinging, this is a fascinating cautionary tale about ambition, power and the importance of skepticism.

Southwest premiere!

Thursdays through Sundays, September 10–27, 2009

Edward Albee’s A Delicate Balance

PRODUCTION SPONSOR: PAM SHACK

If you liked The Goat, or Who is Sylvia?, you won’t want to miss this return trip into the intricate and intense world of Edward Albee. In this stunning examination of personal relationships, he asks, “Who do you turn to when life becomes too much to bear?” You could seek the warmth and security of family, except that loved ones are sometimes more dangerous than the outside world. Funny, biting and tragic all at the same time, this is a high-definition look at the minefield we call modern living.

Thursdays through Sundays, November 5–29, 2009
No performances Friday November 6 or Thursday November 26

Thornton Wilder’s Our Town

PRODUCTION SPONSOR: NANCY REEDER

Our Town

A masterpiece of simplicity and grace, this play is a powerful and stark portrait of American life at the beginning of the twentieth century.

Samuel Beckett’s Krapp’s Last Tape, Not I and Act Without Words

PRODUCTION SPONSORS: NORMA AND DAVID LEWIS

Holding his mirror up to the most minute and mundane of situations, Samuel Beckett allows a whole world of possibility to spring to life. From the seed of a moment comes deep insight and understanding. This evening of one-acts offers three unique journeys into the poetic and ironic world of one of Ireland’s greatest writers.

Thursdays through Sundays, February 25–March 14, 2010

William Shakespeare’s Othello

PRODUCTION SPONSOR: PAUL BARBY

Othello

A classic tale of love and longing outpacing reason, this play questions whether love and desire can ever be contained. The passion of Othello, the Moor of Venice, burns hotly in this story of a man who loved not wisely, but too well. Unrivalled in its portrayal of jealousy, revenge and surrender, Othello contains some of the most rapturous of Shakespeare’s verse, as well as his most intriguing villain.

Thursdays through Sundays, April 29–May 16, 2010
