A.R. Gurney, Hamish Linklater, Alan Rickman, Beau Willimon Featured in The Flea's 2012-2013 Season
Up first is Thomas Bradshaw's Job (beginning August 31), described as an "honest, un-cynical" adaptation of the biblical book of Job. This is followed by the world premiere of A.R. Gurney's Heresy (beginning September 29), which explores the government and the American Dream in a terrifying near future. In repertory with these productions will be American Song, a 13-episode live theater radio play series by Arthur Yorinks, which explores the history of the 20th century through song (beginning September 10).
Also in August, Anne Carson's Krapp Hour, an adaptation of Beckett's Krapp's Last Tape, will run starring Alan Rickman in the title role.
In Spring 2013, the theater will present The Vandal by Hamish Linklater and a new play by Beau Willimon, to be directed by film director Joel Schumacher.
