Yale Rep Announces 2017-18 Season Productions
Suzan-Lori Parks' Father Comes Home From the Wars will head to New Haven.
Yale Repertory Theatre has announced its 2017-18 season lineup.
The season opens with Henrik Ibsen's political play An Enemy of the People (October 6-28), newly translated from the Norwegian by Paul Walsh and directed by James Bundy.
Nambi E. Kelley then makes her Yale Rep debut with her critically acclaimed Native Son (November 24-December 16). The play, adapted from Richard Wright's iconic novel of the same name, is directed by Seret Scott.
Next will be the debut of Field Guide (January 26-February 17, 2018), a subversively funny riff on Fyodor Dostoevsky's The Brothers Karamazov. The piece is presented by Rude Mechs, the Austin-based theater collective whose work has been presented previously as part of Yale Rep's annual No Boundaries performance series.
Father Comes Home From the Wars (Parts 1, 2 & 3) will follow (March 16-April 7, 2018). The production reunites Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks and resident director Liz Diamond, who collaborated on Yale Rep's world premieres of The Death of the Last Black Man in the Whole Entire World and The America Play.
Closing out the season will be Kiss (April 27-May 19, 2018), a new play by Chilean playwright Guillermo Calderón. Resident director Evan Yionoulis will helm the production.
