New plays by Billy Porter, Charles Busch, and Jiehae Park are on tap for the upcoming season at Primary Stages.

Remember to Live, written by and starring Tony winner Porter, will run October 29-December 22 under the direction of Sheryl Kaller. The play looks at the lives of five gay men who, having survived the AIDS crisis, must navigate a difficult past in search of forgiveness, redemption, and love.

Busch's The Confession of Lily Dare, directed by Carl Andress, will run January 8, 2020-March 4, 2020. The work follows one woman's passage from convent girl to cabaret chanteuse to infamous madam. Busch will take on the title role.

Completing the season is Park's Peerless, running May 12, 2020-June 28, 2020, under the direction of Margot Bordelon. A riff on Shakespeare's Macbeth, the play is set in the ruthless world of elite college admissions.
