WESTPHALIA by Helen Banner (Oct 19 - Nov 12)

World Premiere

In a wild new robotic economy, AI determines people’s right to buy or sell their own citizenship. A family descended from the Pilgrims has fallen on hard times. Will they be allowed to cash out and go somewhere new? An imaginative, surprising perspective on national borders and our own humanity.

RIFT, or white lies by Gabriel Jason Dean (Feb 8-Mar 3)

Commissioned World Premiere

Playwright Gabriel Jason Dean’s brother is a convicted murderer who has become a high-level member of the alt-right. The two shared a childhood, but what is their responsibility to each other in the future? How did their paths diverge? Is it possible to love someone whose beliefs you hate?

QUEEN OF THE NIGHT by travis tate (Apr 25-May 19)

Regional Premiere

Ty would prefer to go “glamping” but his father has taken him to the middle of the woods. The night before Ty’s mom remarries, the two men fight bears, their past, and one another in this inventive exploration of masculinity and queerness through the lens of multi-generational Blackness.




TRICH by Becca Schneider (Dec 1-Dec 10)

National Premiere
