Welcome to our 2024/25 Season!
2024/25 SEASON: The Plays

THE WANDERERS • Philadelphia Premiere • by Anna Ziegler • directed by Jesse Bernstein • September 5 - October 6, 2024
Two couples – Esther and Schmuli, Abe and Sophie – seem destined for each other, but are torn apart by their conflicting sense of obligation and independence. From the writer of Lantern hits Photograph 51 and The Last Match comes this moving exploration of estrangement and the great human yearning for connection, told with keen humor and deep empathy for these flawed and fascinating characters.

AMERICAN MOOR • Philadelphia Premiere • by Keith Hamilton Cobb • directed by Kash Goins • November 7 - December 8, 2024
An actor auditions for the title role in Othello. From this simple scenario springs a rich and penetrating exploration of Shakespeare in a story told with wit, passion, and linguistic brilliance. The conflicting views of the actor and the director shine a revealing light on race and art in modern America, and bring a refreshing new perspective on the enduring power of Shakespeare's work.

MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING • by William Shakespeare • directed by Charles McMahon • February 13 - March 16, 2025
Beatrice and Benedick hardly seem like a couple to be placed at the center of a classic romantic comedy. Well past the age of youthful infatuation, they would rather duel with wits and mock the coup de foudre of the young lovers Claudio and Hero. But Venus will not be denied. Through a dizzying web of misdirection and deceits both malign and benign, Beatrice's and Benedick's steadfast refusal to love is put to the acid test. Will they go on with their merry single lives or fall in love despite themselves?

THE 39 STEPS • adapted by Patrick Barlow • from the novel by John Buchan • from the movie by Alfred Hitchcock • directed by Charles McMahon • May 15 - June 15, 2025
A spy thriller or a rollicking comedy? Why not both? We travel from London to the Scottish Highlands and back in this absurdist play about a social dandy trying to thwart the theft of state military secrets. Winner of the 2007 Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy and a 2008 Tony Award nominee for Best Play, this riotous adaptation of The 39 Steps was inspired by John Buchan's 1915 adventure novel and Alfred Hitchcock's 1935 film and continues to delight audiences today.
