Lear

King Lear

October 6 - October 16, 2016

By William Shakespeare
Harriet S. Jorgensen Theatre

Celebrating the First Folio’s visit to UConn, the Connecticut Repertory Theatre presents a play that has fascinated audiences for more than 400 years and stands as Shakespeare’s most towering achievement, King Lear. The aging monarch resolves to retire and divide his kingdom. In the process his family and country are torn apart and so begins Lear’s descent into madness. A once proud monarch is forced to wrestle with morality as he confronts his own mortality.  As George Bernard Shaw wrote, “No man will ever write a better tragedy than Lear.”

Nuevo

Nuevo California

October 27 - November 6, 2016

Bernardo Solano and Allan Havis
Studio Theatre

Donald Trump’s wall between Mexico and the United States may seem like it is ripped from today’s headlines, but clear  back in 1998, playwrights Solano and Havis interviewed over 200 residents of San Diego, Tijuana, and Mexicali asking a simple question, “Would we be better off with or without a wall between the two countries?” The result is this prescient futuristic fantasy. It’s 2028, an earthquake has wiped out L.A. and Orange County. A Mexican-American pope comes to the region to bless the demolition of the boarder wall inspiring murder; mystery and a budding bicultural romance. Is it possible that this community born fantasy is becoming tomorrow’s reality?

Turkey

An Absolute Turkey 

December 1 - December 10, 2016

By Georges Feydeau
Harriet S. Jorgensen Theatre

We’ll bring you this hilariously overstuffed turkey to celebrate the holidays! The supreme master of farce, Georges Feydeau, displays all his comic genius as a man lusts after his friend’s wife, which triggers a riotous revenge plot and a dizzying spell of side-splitting complications. When this translation opened at the Globe Theatre in 1993, The Daily Express observed, “The witty, highly risqué translation sets the tone for an evening of frenzied Bacchanalian exuberance… [that is] enough to make you weep with laughter.”

Lefty

Waiting for Lefty

February 23 - March 5, 2017

By Clifford Odets
Nafe Katter Theatre

Clifford Odets’ passionate and politically-charged play Waiting for Lefty is a timeless piece of classic American theatre that you won’t readily forget. In 1930’s New York City the Great Depression takes full force and working families are put out on the streets to starve. As people fight for their lives, a union of cab drivers decide ‘no more’ and wait for their leader, Lefty Castello, to choose if they will strike or not. The demand for social change drives this classic Group Theatre production into modern times leaving us to answer: “what are we waiting for?”

In Eurydice, a fresh look at one of the greatest love stories of all time, playwright Sarah Ruhl re-imagines the classic myth of Orpheus through the eyes of its heroine.

On their wedding day, Eurydice is enticed by a letter from her deceased father, only to find herself reunited with him in the underworld. As Orpheus tries to rescue her, Eurydice must re-learn human language in order to remember all she left behind and, ultimately, choose between two worlds in this whimsical and breathtaking story of the power and fragility of love.
