Clifford Odet’s Awake and Sing

PRODUCTION SPONSORS: WARD & JUDITH WALLINGFORD
Actors, musicians, director and costuming are supported in part by generous gifts from John & Joyce Ambruster, Maura Brackett, Joan Cook, Norma Davenport, Karen DeLay & Bill Sandel, Meg & Peter Hovell, Bill & Carol Mangold, Katherine Smith and Paul Winick & Ronda Lustman.

Awake and Sing

Regarded by many as Odets’ best play, Awake and Sing puts us in the lives of an urban family during the Great Depression. Though the play has the leftist sentiments of the period, its reflections on the stresses of economic hardship are as personal as they are social. Thoroughly American in its idiom and dialect (first and second generation Jewish and European), the play was originally produced by the Group Theatre, a legendary American ensemble.

Directed by Bryan Rafael Falcón

Thursdays through Sundays, September 11–28, 2014

Jez Butterworth’s Jerusalem

PRODUCTION SPONSORS: JOYCE & JOHN AMBRUSTER
Actors, director and costuming are supported in part by generous gifts from Bev & Bob Bechtel, Joan Cook, Norma Davenport, The Griffiths of Centerville, Ohio, Pat & John Hemann, Meg & Peter Hovell, Ruth Kosakowsky, Cheryl Lockhart, Edie Michelson & Sumner Milender, Katherine Smith, Andy & Cammie Watson and John & Diane Wilson.

A deeply resonant and poetic play set in rural England. Jerusalem (by the same author as The Night Heron) is funny, tragic, and mysterious with a powerful Pan-like central figure. Tradition and spirit inhabit the land as Dionysus rages against encroaching civilization.

Directed by Cynthia Meier

Thursdays through Sundays, November 6–23, 2014

Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot

PRODUCTION SPONSORS: KATHARINA PHILLIPS & SHELDON TRUBATCH
Actors, musicians, director and post-show discussion are supported in part by generous gifts from Joyce & John Ambruster, Joan Cook, Norma Davenport, Robert & Rhonda Fleming, Dan Gilmore & JoAn Forehand, The Learning Curve, Dave Lewis, Kristi Lewis and Jan Stewart.

Waiting for Godot

One of the greatest of modern plays, Waiting for Godot remains a challenge for interpreters. Two figures wait for a vaguely rendered entity named Godot, and both he/she/it and the waiting itself become metaphoric.

Directed by Cynthia Meier

Thursdays through Sundays, January 8–25, 2015

Virginia Woolf’s The Lady in the Looking Glass

PRODUCTION SPONSOR: NILS & ANN HASSELMO

A collection of seven short stories by the great modernist writer, Virginia Woolf, brought to the stage for the first time by The Rogue Theatre. A feast of language and inner landscape in which worlds are discovered in simple moments.

Directed by Joseph McGrath

Thursdays through Sundays, February 26–March 15, 2015

William Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice

PRODUCTION SPONSORS: PAT & JOHN HEMANN
Actors, musicians, director and costuming are supported in part by generous gifts from John & Joyce Ambruster, Ellen & Warren Bodow, Joan Cook, Norma Davenport, Bryan & Elizabeth Falcón, Meg Peter Hovell, Ed & Nancy Landes, Lori Levine & Gary Benna, Jan Linn & Richard Pincus, Cheryl Lockhart, Bill & Carol Mangold, Katharina Phillips & Sheldon Trubatch, Pam Shack, and an anonymous donor.

The Merchant of Venice

Features one of Shakespeare’s most arresting characters, Shylock, for which it is known, but the play is an ebullient romantic comedy as well. The test of the caskets and the courtroom that decides the issue of the pound of flesh are vivid and theatrical elements of a master dramatist. The “just” revenge on Shylock, perhaps satisfying to an earlier audience, is deeply disturbing in the contemporary era.

Directed by Cynthia Meier

Thursdays through Sundays, April 30–May 17, 2015
