In a small house in the mountains of Ireland, a lonely spinster locks horns with her house-bound, manipulative mother in a rage-filled battle of the wills. Written by Martin McDonagh (The Pillowman, The Cripple of Inishmaan), one of Ireland's most important contemporary playwrights, The Beauty Queen of Leenane is a subversive thriller that takes audiences through the twists and turns of the ultimate dysfunctional relationship, revealing what can happen when family ties go too far…way too far.
Twenty years ago, the Druid Theatre Company's production of The Beauty Queen of Leenane rocked America and Broadway; the show was nominated for six Tony Awards, winning four. Druid returns with Tony-winning director Garry Hynes' remount of this spectacular production. Marie Mullen, who won the Tony for her performance as the daughter, returns this time in the role of the mother, while Aisling O'Sullivan takes up the daughter's role.
A spin-off of Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun, this razor-sharp satire takes a jab at race and real estate in a fictional Chicago neighborhood. Bruce Norris' play Clybourne Park, which won the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for drama and the 2012 Tony Award for best play, overflows with dirty words. None seems filthier in context, however, than "tribes," "territory," "property," "society," or "community," all of which are burdened with the intersecting stories of race and class in this country. Clybourne Park is both satirical and deeply troubling as it provides an emotionally raw look at race in America, where everything and nothing seems to change.
Note: A post-show talkback with the cast is scheduled for Sunday, February 26. A pre-show conversation is scheduled for Thursday, March 2, at 6:30pm.
A Play Adapted by Terry Johnson Based on the Novel by Charles Webb and the Motion Picture Screenplay by Calder Willingham and Buck Henry.
In Informed Consent by Deborah Zoe Laufer, an ambitious geneticist is hired to help figure out why a Native American tribe is being devastated by diabetes. However, her research threatens to destroy the tribe's most sacred traditions. With genomic breakthroughs happening at breakneck speed, Informed Consent explores the question of just how much knowledge is too much. And who gets to decide?
Note: This play was inspired by the case of Havasupai Tribe vs. the Arizona Board of Regents. Each performance is followed by a reception with the actors in the gallery.
Log in. Choose an identity. Live out your private dreams. This is life in the Nether — a lush, virtual wonderland offering total sensory immersion free of judgment and, seemingly, consequence. But when a real-world cop discovers a disturbing form of entertainment in "The Hideaway" realm, she triggers a virtual investigation with gasp-worthy revelations and an unimagined result. Part fairy tale, part sci-fi thriller, The Nether is a taut, haunting, and highly original play for our times.
