Over 13 days in September, 1978, three world leaders came together to attempt the impossible: a negotiated peace in the Middle East. Journey to the secluded presidential retreat in the Maryland hills near the nation's capital, where President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn host Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin and Egyptian President Anwar Sadat for a marathon fortnight of debate, arm-twisting, cajoling, stratagems, charm offensives, proposals, and counter-proposals. Camp David, based on first-hand accounts and never-before-seen documents, is Pulitzer Prize winner Lawrence Wright's (The Looming Tower, HBO's Going Clear) most recent play, from which his New York Times bestseller Thirteen Days in September emerged. Camp David offers a you-are-there view of a great historical achievement whose legacy continues to resonate and tantalize nearly 40 years later.
Physicist Marianne meets beekeeper Roland at a party. They go for a drink ... or perhaps they don't. Marianne's engaged ... or perhaps Roland is married. Or maybe they're both single. Nick Payne's smash Broadway hit play Constellations takes this chance encounter between two lost souls and opens the door to the infinite possibilities of their relationship.
Breathlessly navigating through the spellbinding and romantic journey of being in love, Constellations looks at how the tiniest change in the detail of our lives can lead us on completely different paths. Old Globe favorite Richard Seer returns to direct this exciting new play that the NY Times called "Sexy. Sophisticated. Gorgeous. This story of parallel universes is universal in every sense of the word."
Oscar and Tony Award winner Mercedes Ruehl (The Fisher King, Lost in Yonkers) brings "The Empress of Fashion" back to The Old Globe! Before Anna Wintour or The Devil Wears Prada, there was Diana Vreeland, larger-than-life doyenne of American taste. Unceremoniously fired as editor of Vogue, she hunkers down in her famous all-red New York apartment and plans her comeback: a magazine of her own. The path to get there is as complicated and outré as Vreeland herself. Full Gallop, which premiered at the Globe in 1995, is a witty one-woman tour de force about the fabulous style icon who forever changed the way Americans experience clothing, art, and life.
The US Open tennis semifinals are underway. Russian phenom Sergei Sergeyev and American superstar Tim Porter do battle under the lights on center court. Their wives Galina and Mallory cheer them on anxiously from the stands. As the back-and-forth action unfolds, The Last Match journeys inside the minds of these two extraordinary players to reveal the lives that led to this defining moment. Before it's game, set, and match, four good people win and lose more than just a championship. Developed in the Globe's 2014 New Voices Festival, Anna Ziegler's energetic and moving new play is a funny and visceral look at the sacrifices we make to stay on top.
Master sushi chef Koji built his successful career on respect—for tradition, fine ingredients, and the legends who came before him. But now his restaurant, considered one of the greatest in Tokyo, is losing its customers to newer and flashier places. It's time for a new generation to take over. Koji's brilliant protégé Takashi might know how to save the restaurant, if only he could find a way to tell his mentor. Kimber Lee's beautiful play will take audiences into the mind of the chef-as-artist and bring to vibrant life the sheer exhilaration of creating bite-sized masterpieces. toyko fish story is a gorgeous meditation on work, legacy, and the art of perfection.
On the outskirts of Mormon Country, Idaho, a six hundred pound recluse hides away in his apartment, eating himself to death. Desperate to reconnect with his long-estranged daughter, he reaches out to her, only to find a viciously sharp-tongued and wildly unhappy teen. Big-hearted and fiercely funny, The Whale tells the story of a man's last chance at redemption, and of finding beauty in the most unexpected places.
