REVOLT. SHE SAID. REVOLT AGAIN.
A New England Premiere by Alice Birch | Directed by Summer L. Williams
October 21 – November 19, 2016 | Plaza Theatre, Boston Center for the Arts

Maybe some #FreeTheNipple #MasculinitySoFragile #Lemonade
A lot of #MelaninOnFleek #BlackGirlMagic #YesAllWomen
Always #AskHerMore #GirlsLikeUs #SaidNoWomanEver
Forever #SquadGoals

Through vignettes that move at rapid-fire pace, REVOLT... morphs language and explodes boundaries to explore the myriad ways women are styled, shaped, and confined to fit society’s expectations, asking us: What happens when we rebel?

A puckish, yet deadly serious meditation on how language molds our experience of sex and gender, a scalding cascade of interconnected vignettes exploring words and their limits.”  Slate

 

REALLY
A New England Premiere by Jackie Sibblies Drury | Directed by Shawn LaCount
In Partnership with Matter & Light Fine Art
January 20 – February 5, 2017 | Matter & Light Fine Art, SOWA

In a studio filled with photographs, two very different women work to process the disappearance of a charming, volatile artist. But which of them really knew him? Staged in the intimate Matter & Light gallery, this striking, lyrical new work follows the people he left behind as they sort through his remaining photos—which offer confounding clues into to the person they both loved. Through sound and silence, flash and shutter, REALLY explores the elusive way in which photography freezes a moment in time, and what effect that image has on memory.

“Stylishly contemplative … REALLY is unusually clearsighted about the ambiguities of its subject.” – The New York Times

 

PEERLESS
A Boston Premiere by Jiehae Park | Directed by Steven Bogart
In Partnership with All the City’s A Stage at the Boston Public Library
April 27 – May 28, 2017 | Rabb Hall, Boston Public Library

With their perfect SAT scores, perfect hair, and “perfect minority status,” twins L and M think acceptance to their dream school should be guaranteed. But when a rival student emerges with a personal tragedy to make an admissions officer weep, the twins will do anything to knock out the competition. Does that include murder most foul? Mean Girls meets the Bard in this black comedy, which sets one of Shakespeare’s bloodiest plays against the backdrop of competitive college admissions.

All the City’s a Stage at the Boston Public Library celebrates the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death. From September 2016 to May 2017 discover the Bard’s lasting legacy with two exhibitions at the Central Library in Copley Square and dozens of programs connecting audiences to theater and the dramatic arts system wide.

 

LEFTOVERS
A World Premiere by Josh Wilder | Directed by Summer L. Williams
July 14 – August 12, 2017 | Stay Tuned for Location
In Development With Company One’s PlayLab

Weeds are a given in the heart of Philly, but when a giant dandelion sprouts overnight and wishes start falling from the sky, a young man and his family begin to see a way out of the cycle of poverty that has governed their lives. Refusing to feel like the city’s leftovers any longer, the two brothers embark on an adventure they never could have imagined.

Growing up in the inner city as a young Black man I felt like my dreams and my environment were at war.… Writing this play helped me understand why people in my neighborhood gave up, and it helped me heal the wounds I accumulated in my pursuit of my own dreams. – Josh Wilder

EVERY 28 HOURS 
In collaboration with Oregon Shakespeare Festival and The One-Minute Play Festival
In Support of the #BlackLivesMatter movement
November 5, 2016 | Museum of Fine Arts
A ONE-NIGHT FREE EVENT

Every 28 hours in the United States, a man, woman, or child who identifies as black is murdered at the hands of a vigilante, security guard, or police officer. Born in Ferguson, MO, the EVERY 28 HOURS project consists of 80 one-minute plays inspired by the work and message of Black Lives Matter, written by 40-plus playwrights who are part of a national movement initiated by theatre companies across the country. As urgent as it is cathartic, EVERY 28 HOURS seeks to provide a space where rage and healing can exist in tandem, where truth to power isn’t just spoken, but performed.

“We are in a time of change for the U.S. and the reflection on this current Civil Rights Movement is exciting because of the power and number of talented voices collaborating. Our project is informed by thoughtful leaders in activism, performance, civic leadership and communications. The work is hard and inspiring and necessary.” – Claudia Alick, Community Producer, Oregon Shakespeare Festival
