    Written by Caryl Churchill, Directed by Michael Dove

    DC PREMIERE Love and Information is a fast moving kaleidoscope of over 60 moments of intimate whispers, philosophical exchanges, and life-changing revelations by more than a hundred characters trying to make sense of what they know. Someone sneezes. Someone can’t get a signal. Someone shares a secret. Someone won’t answer the door. Someone put an elephant on the stairs. Someone’s not ready to talk. Someone is her brother’s mother. Someone hates irrational numbers. Someone told the police. Someone got a message from the traffic light. Someone’s never felt like this before.

    Written by Alexander Manuiloff, Directed by TBA

    US PREMIERE The State tells the story of the last conscious night of Plamen Goranov before he burnt himself in protest in front of the Municipal Council of Varna, Bulgaria. The text consists of fictionalized letters that share intimate moments of the character’s last minutes on Earth and also open space for discussion about our basic rules, principles, and values. The State is an innovative theatrical event based on Manuiloff’s text, but engaging the audience in a unique way. Audience members take part in the performance, becoming players and co-authors, and changing the piece each time it is presented. WINTER 2017

    DC PREMIERE In August 1831, Nat Turner led a slave uprising that shook the conscience of the nation. Turner's startling account of his prophecy and the insurrection was recorded and published by attorney Thomas R. Gray. Nat Tuner in Jerusalem imagines Turner’s final night in a jail cell in Jerusalem, Virginia, as he is revisited by Gray and they reckon with what has passed and what the dawn will bring. Woven with vivid imagery and indelible lyricism, Nat Turner in Jerusalem examines the power of an individual's resolute convictions and their seismic reverberations through time. SPRING 2018
