2018 — Celebrating The Writing Of Female Playwrights
Our 2018 Season — our thirteenth season — is dedicated to work written by amazing women from across the country. We’ll introduce you to two regional premieres, one world premiere and one amazing piece of theatre by playwright Lynn Nottage.
Feb. 9-Feb. 25, 2018
May 4-May 20, 2018
Sept. 7-Sept. 23, 2018
Nov. 2-Nov. 18, 2018
Quality. Humor. Heart. Life.
Our first show of this season is a delightful, laugh-a-minute comedy where four unique Southern women, all needing to escape the sameness of their day-to-day routines, are drawn together by fate and an impromptu happy hour. Join them as they decide it’s high time to reclaim the enthusiasm for life they’ve lost through the years. The Savannah Sipping Society is directed by Randall McCann.
We’ll then transform our stage to Venice in 1610 and the life of artist Artemisia Gentileschi, one of the most accomplished female Italian Baroque painters of the time in our world premiere of Artemisia written and directed by Philadelphia playwright, Lee Kiszonas.
Our third show of this season will take you “down-the-shore” after hurricane Sandy hit as we present the regional premiere of By The Water written by Sharyn Rothstein. A show that will grip you in its heartfelt story of a couple and their family dealing with this natural disaster and their family.
Our fourth and final show of the season was written by Lynn Nottage and is being directed by Connie Norwood. Join us as our theatre transforms to 1950’s Brooklyn in Crumbs From The Table Of Joy. Meet Godfrey Crump, grieving over his wife’s death, as he finds new meaning in religion. He has moved his family, Ernestine, a 17-year-old and Ermina, 15 years old, from Florida to Brooklyn. Their Aunt Lily espouses Communist sentiments and Godfrey’s new wife is not only a white woman, but German.
