After twenty years apart, Emma tracks Ulysses to a trailer park in the middle of nowhere for a final reckoning. What unfolds is a visceral and profound meditation on love and loss with the simplest of theatrical elements: two people in one room. A breathtaking story about the longevity of love.
Penumbra's treasured holiday tradition returns with a focus on compassion, connection, and community. Civil Rights leader and theologian Dr. Howard Thurman suggested that "the work of Christmas" begins after we return to our everyday lives. This work is "to find the lost, to heal the broken, to feed the hungry, to release the prisoner, to rebuild the nations, to bring peace among brothers, to make music in the heart." What makes your heart sing? How will you dedicate your energies during the New Year? This Christmas, the most radical expression of love is justice. Be the light.
Amir Kapoor, a successful Pakistani-American lawyer, is happy, in love and about to land the biggest promotion of his life. But ethnicity collides with ambition when Amir and his wife, Emily, host a dinner party at their Upper East Side apartment. Friendly conversation soon turns confrontational and Amir makes a costly decision. A 2015 Tony Award nominee for Best Play and winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize, this 90-minute one-act has been described as a "blistering social drama about racial prejudices" (Variety) and a "combustible powder keg of identity politics" (Bloomberg). Don't miss this conversation-starter from one of the most promising playwrights in theater today.
Award-winning Scottish playwright David Greig's The Events follows a community's search for compassion, peace and understanding in the wake of unthinkable violence. A response to the 2011 Norway attacks, this internationally acclaimed production delves into faith, politics and reason, and features music sung by a different community choir at each performance. The Events is a daring theatrical event that explores our desire to fathom the unfathomable and asks how far forgiveness will stretch in the face of atrocity.
With this solo piece that debuted at the 2014 Minnesota Fringe Festival, Lingo has created a show the Star Tribune called "masterfully done, with equal parts rollicking humor, clever turns of phrase, lurking pathos and, ultimately, affirming joy." She wrestles with what it means to be ensconced in the journey to conceive a child when she herself will only be connected by the genealogy of happenstance. Sometimes, making a baby takes more than just the birds and the bees.
Elwood P. Dowd is charming, lovable and kind with just one catch: his best friend is a 6-foot-tall invisible rabbit named Harvey. When Elwood's sister Veta hosts a social gathering to launch her daughter into society, Elwood's idiosyncrasies threaten to upset the family's reputation. Veta tries to have him committed to the sanatorium, but a whirlwind of confusion and chaos ensues as the town tries to catch a man and his invisible rabbit. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Harvey is a delightfully eccentric comedy for the whole family.

Enter a world ruled by fevered delusions and far-flung imagination, where a windmill transforms into a giant and a filthy innkeeper is a king.

Tommy is getting by, crashing in his uncle's ramshackle house in Dublin, dodging his estranged family and plotting a parade of get-rich-quick schemes with his buddy. Then one day Tommy defends a destitute woman from a violent attack and a fragile glimmer of hope appears.
Incoming Artistic Director Joseph Haj makes his directorial debut at the Guthrie with his celebrated take on Shakespeare's romance. Pericles, Prince of Tyre, sets out to woo a princess and sails headlong into harrowing adventure. Pursued by an evil king, Pericles is blown from port to exotic port. Along the way, he finds the love of his life, then loses her and their infant daughter in a storm-tossed sea. In true storybook fashion, miracles reunite the lost with those who love them, bringing joy and safe harbor at last.
Does art imitate life? Or does life imitate art? From Pulitzer finalist and Tony Award nominee Sarah Ruhl (Dead Man's Cell Phone, In the Next Room (or the Vibrator Play)) is this wickedly clever and charming tale about what happens when lovers share a stage kiss — or when actors share a real one. When two actors with a history are thrown together as romantic leads in a forgotten 1930s melodrama, they quickly lose touch with reality as the story onstage follows them offstage. The New York Times hailed Ruhl's new play a "daffy comedy about the emotional pitfalls of the acting life."
Ashanti and Kenyatta met in the prime of their youth and at the pinnacle of their political consciousness. Beautiful, brave, and idealistic, they never imagined what would come of their Revolution: how it would be dismantled from the inside with drugs and conspiracy, how young intellectuals and activists would be brutalized in the streets, how the media would reduce them from caring community members to criminals. Three decades later, Kenyatta is searching for connection after being locked away in prison. During that time, the love of his life succumbed to a deadly combination of heartbreak and drugs. In the wake of so much loss and disappointment, one fire still burns – the light inside the child born of their passion – Nina. Will she be overcome by the ghosts of the past? Or, will she blaze a new trail, harnessing today's revolutionary spirit?
Set in the Deep South, this timeless story based on Harper Lee's beloved Pulitzer Prize-winning novel is told through the eyes of Scout, the feisty young daughter of lawyer Atticus Finch.

Full of heart and depth, this cherished classic takes the stage immediately following the release of Lee's Mockingbird sequel.
It is 1957 in New York and rehearsals have begun for a racially integrated production, one the company hopes will be the next hit. But when prejudices and stereotypes emerge, African American actress Wiletta Mayer faces a difficult decision: should she swallow her pride and compromise her values to achieve her lifelong dream of playing a leading role on Broadway. This award-winning biting satire by the first African American female playwright to have a play optioned on Broadway has been called "one of the best plays about racism ever written" (The Washington Post).
