Another highlight of the season will be the world premiere of American Night (June 29-October 24), by Culture Clash, which is the first of OSF's commissions for its previously announced American Revolutions: The United States History Cycle. The play weaves multiple narratives about ordinary people who, in extraordinarily difficult circumstances, resist the status quo and sacrifice their well-being for the benefit of others. Jo Bonney will direct.
The season will also include four Shakespeare works: The Merchant of Venice (June 3-October 10), directed by OSF artistic director Bill Rauch; Twelfth Night (June 1-October 8); Henry IV, Part One (June 3-October 10), directed by Penny Metropulos; and Hamlet (February 19-October 24), also directed by Rauch.
Additional shows will include an adaptation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice (February 21-October 24), directed by Libby Appel; Tennessee Williams' Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (February 20-July 4), directed by Christopher Liam Moore; the Jerry Bock-Sheldon Harnick-Joe Masteroff musical She Loves Me (April 14-October 23), directed by Rebecca Bayla Taichman; Lisa Kron's Well (February 25-June 18), directed by James Edmondson; and Lynn Nottage's Ruined (March 24-October 24).For more information, visit www.osfashland.org.
