PLAYING THE ASSASSIN

Written by David Robson (a Wilmington based playwright)

Directed by Joe Brancato

October 21-November 8, 2015

This gripping new play is a compelling drama inspired by the devastating true story of an NFL star’s career ending injury at the hands of a player known as “The Assassin”.  PLAYING THE ASSASSIN examines the violence that football demands on the field, and the hero worship that plays into their legacy.  It is hard to escape the conclusion that some responsibility must be borne by those of us who make professional football the country’s most popular sport – who cheer as grown men try to hurt one another.

DINER

Book by Academy Award-winner Barry Levinson

Music and Lyrics by nine-time Grammy Award-winner Sheryl Crow

Directed by three-time Tony Award-winner Kathleen Marshall

December 2-27, 2015

Christmas, Baltimore: 1959. A circle of childhood friends reunite for the upcoming wedding of one of them. Well, only if his fiancée passes a football trivia test. From the comfort of their all-night diner, the men, now in their early-twenties, confront the realities of adulthood: marriage, careers, money and the ever-mysterious opposite sex. But no matter where life takes them, they know they’re welcome back at the diner, the one place they’ll always belong. Infused with swinging 1950s rock and roll sound, three-time Tony Award®-winning director and choreographer Kathleen Marshall joins Crow and Levinson to transform DINER’s groundbreaking evocation of burgeoning adulthood and friendship for the stage.

NUREYEV'S EYES

Written by David Rush

March 2-20, 2016

An inside story about two iconic artists – an American painter and a Russian ballet dancer – and how they created a now famous set of paintings. During the 70's the American painter Jamie Wyeth (son of Andrew) did a series of studies and paintings of Rudolf Nureyev, the legendary ballet dancer who defected from Russia and revitalized western ballet. Written with the express permission and support of Jamie Wyeth, this brand new play by David Rush imagines what their electric encounters may have been like, what secrets were revealed about the world of painting and international dance, and how their relationship evolved…changing each of them.

THE EXPLORERS CLUB

Written by Nell Benjamin (playwright of BECAUSE OF WINN-DIXIE)
Directed by Bud Martin

April 27-May 15, 2016

THE STORY: London, 1879. The prestigious Explorers Club is in crisis: their acting president wants to admit a woman, and their bartender is terrible. True, this female candidate is brilliant, beautiful, and has discovered a legendary Lost City, but the decision to let in a woman could shake the very foundation of the British Empire, and how do you make such a decision without a decent drink? Grab your safety goggles for some very mad science involving deadly cobras, irate Irishmen and the occasional airship.
