St. Ann's Warehouse Announces 2017-18 Season
Highlights include the U.S. premiere of People, Places & Things, a new Enda Walsh play, and Schaubühne Berlin's production of Returning to Reims.
St. Ann's Warehouse announced its 2017-18 season, its third in its waterfront theater in Brooklyn Bridge Park.
The season will begin with the previously announced U.S. premiere of Duncan Macmillan's People, Places & Things, with Denise Gough reprising the role she played in its world premiere production in London's West End. Directed by Jeremy Herrin, the production will run October 19-November 19.
Following that is a new play by Enda Walsh, Ballyturk, running January 9-28, 2018. Then comes another U.S. premiere, of Schaubühne Berlin's production of Returning to Reims, an adaptation of French author Didier Eribon's memoir of the same title, directed by Thomas Ostermeier and starring Nina Hoss (Homeland).
South Africa's Baxter Theater Centre at the University of Cape Town returns to St. Ann's Warehouse with The Fall March 8-25, 2018. Later comes the U.S. premiere of Nikos Karathanos's The Birds, his take on Aristophanes's 414 BC comedy, May 2-13, 2018. And from June 26 to July 1, 2018, is Labapalooza!, the theater's annual mini-festival of puppet theater.
In addition to the theatrical offerings, Rufus Wainwright (Prima Donna) will give two performances of Northern Stars, an evening of music by fellow Canadian artists such as Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, and Leonard Cohen on April 19 and 20. And Geoff Sobelle's current site-specific sonic art installation Here Their There Here: A Sound Walk Through Brooklyn Bridge Park is ongoing.
