Experience Philadelphia favorites Mary Martello and Ben Dibble together as never before in this suspenseful, timely American drama that grapples with questions of moral certainty...and doubt. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Play, Doubt: A Parable will move you, challenge you, and leave you on the edge of your seat.
Victor Williams (King of Queens) stars as Troy Maxon in August Wilson's Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning drama about a man of mythic proportions forced to wrestle with the reality of his life. A sanitation worker and onetime Negro League baseball player, Troy is the heart and heartbreak of this iconic story of dreams denied, fathers and sons, and America's legacy of racism. Fences is one of the most beloved plays of the 20th Century written by "a major writer, combining a poet's ear for vernacular with a robust sense of humor (political and sexual), a sure instinct for crackling dramatic incident and a passionate commitment to a great subject." (The New York Times). The cast will also feature People's Light Company Member, Melanye Finister.
In the spring, the Wilma will stage back-to-back productions of William Shakespeare's Hamlet and Tom Stoppard's now classic behind-the-scenes comedy Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, both directed by Wilma Artistic Director Blanka Zizka and using essentially the same cast for both productions. Bringing freshness to all aspects of the play, the title character in Shakespeare's tragedy will be played by the transformational and powerful actress, Zainab Jah, who recently appeared as Prudence in The Convert at the Wilma. Believed by many to be the greatest play written by Shakespeare, and by many others to be the greatest play written in the English language, the Wilma is excited to throw our voices into the mix. The fight for the throne of Denmark, quest for moral righteousness, and the complexities of vengeance within a 21st century context will be reexamined on the Wilma stage.
Shakespeare's masterpiece is a dark and thrilling story of ghosts, secrets and revenge. By rights, Prince Hamlet should be king, but his Uncle Claudius has stepped into the position after the untimely death of Hamlet's father. When the dead king's ghost rises and calls for revenge, Hamlet heads down a dangerous path filled with madness and uncertainty. In a world where no one can be trusted, where can you turn?
In the dark of night, a violent crime is committed—and nothing will ever be the same. Dan Hodge adapts and performs in this one-man interpretation of Shakespeare's epic poem, a retelling of a classic Roman myth.
