Opening the season will be The Barrow Street Theatre production of Nina Raine's Tribes (February 17-April 14), a comic drama about belonging and the value of communication, directed by David Cromer. Next, Tony Award winner Phylicia Rashad will direct Joe Turner's Come and Gone (April 24-June 9) by August Wilson, a play set in 1911 in a Pittsburgh boarding house, where tenants come and go, forming a community that is altered time and time again. Another Tony Award winner, Anna D. Shapiro, will direct Bruce Norris' darkly comic play about a young woman who believes she has the ability to know what happens in the future, A Parallelogram (July 10-August 18).
In the fall, CTG will present What the Butler Saw (September 25-November 3) by Joe Orton, a comedy skewering psychiatry, religion, marriage, morality, government, and definitions of gender, directed by leading interpreter of Orton's work John Tillinger. The season will close with a production of Sebastian Barry The Steward of Christendom (November 26-January 5), the poignant story of a man left behind by history, starring Two-time Tony Award-winner Brian Dennehy and directed by Steven Robman.
