2021/22 Season: About the Plays

FABULATION, OR THE RE-EDUCATION OF UNDINE Fabulation, or the Re-Education of Undine
Philadelphia Premiere
By Lynn Nottage
Directed by Amina Robinson
January 20 – February 20, 2022

Undine has it all – success, love, and a fabulous wardrobe. When her life begins to unravel in one hilarious reversal after another, she is forced to return to a life she had long left behind. In this satirical comedy, two-time Pulitzer Prize-winner Lynn Nottage asks Undine – and all of us – whether you can really ever go home again. This production will be performed at St. Stephen's Theater, 923 Ludlow Street in Center City Philadelphia.

A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS A Man for All Seasons
Philadelphia Premiere
By Robert Bolt
Directed by Peter DeLaurier
March 10 – April 10, 2022

When Henry VIII puts aside Queen Catherine, he fears opposition from Sir Thomas More, his own Lord Chancellor, even more than from the Pope. A man of principle and politics, More tries to thread a vanishingly small needle to uphold his principles and to keep his head. Robert Bolt's searing drama forces us to confront what we too might bear – or not – to keep clear our conscience. This production will be performed at Plays & Players Theatre, 1714 Delancey Place in Center City Philadelphia.

TRAVESTIES Travesties
By Tom Stoppard
Directed by Charles McMahon
May 19 – June 19, 2022

Zürich, 1917. In Tom Stoppard's Tony Award-winning comic masterpiece, obscure British diplomat Henry Carr and Dadaist Tristan Tzara are in love with Cecily and Gwendolyn, who are both in love with someone named Jack. Carr stages a production of The Importance of Being Earnest with James Joyce, and the action gets heated when Vladimir Lenin bursts onto the scene. Soon everyone in neutral Switzerland is at war over the question, "What does it mean to be an artist and a revolutionary?" This production will be performed at St. Stephen's Theater, 923 Ludlow Street in Center City Philadelphia.

PLUS: A fourth great play to be announced.

PLUS: Get early access to our special holiday production of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, returning live to the Drake Theatre this December! more
