Body Awareness

by Annie Baker

May 5 - June 4, 2022

"An engaging new comedy by a young playwright with a probing, understated voice...Its quiet rewards steal up on you." - The New York Times

"An impressive and occasionally beautiful meditation on the mysteries of being moved." - The New Yorker

It’s Body Awareness Week on a Vermont college campus and Phyllis, the organizer, and her partner, Joyce, are hosting one of the guest artists in their home: Frank, a photographer famous for his female nude portraits. Both his presence in the home and his chosen subject instigate tension from the start. Phyllis is furious at his depictions, but Joyce is actually rather intrigued by the whole thing, even going so far as to contemplate posing for him. As Joyce and Phyllis bicker, Joyce’s adult son, who may or may not have Asperger syndrome, struggles to express himself physically – with heartbreaking results.

The Nina Variations

by Steven Dietz

June 9 - July 9, 2022

n this tribute to Chekhov’s The Seagull, Steven Dietz focuses on the final scene between two star-crossed lovers, presenting 43 new variations of their epilogue. In the original text, Treplev, a young writer, is hopelessly in love with Nina, an actress, who is in love with Treplov’s mother’s lover. In Dietz’s variations, Nina and Treplov live out a range of conclusions from tragic and unresolved to living happily ever after. The Nina Variations is a fascinating exploration of the naivety, idealism, and universal passion of young love.

Shooting Star

by Steven Dietz

August 4 - September 3, 2022

“We humans love stories. And every once in a while, if you’re lucky, you see a story that stands out from all the others. Steven Dietz’s SHOOTING STAR is one of those stories. There are plenty of laughs in Dietz’s humorous tale, but at every important moment, every emotional high, every startling revelation, the theatre grows utterly silent. Stories told this well don’t come around very often.” - Austin Chronicle

Snowed in overnight at a middle-America airport, college lovers Elena Carson and Reed McAllister have an unexpected and life-altering reunion. Elena has stayed true to her hippie-ish, counter-culture path, while Reed has gone predictably corporate and conservative. As the night gives way to laughter, banter, remembrance and alcohol, Elena and Reed revisit a past that holds more surprises than they imagined—and a present that neither of them could have predicted. Filled with laughter and ache, SHOOTING STAR is a bittersweet romantic comedy about the middle days of our lives, and how we got there.

An Almost Holy Picture

by Heather McDonald

September 8 - October 8, 2022

An Almost Holy Picture explores life’s big questions. Samuel, a church groundskeeper, passionately shares his life journey as he peacefully maintains gardens and flower beds. Through cathartic narration, Samuel’s ideas of God and faith are shaped by his daughter Ariel, who has a genetic disorder that singles her out for public scrutiny. A Pulitzer Prize nominated play, An Almost Holy Picture has been lauded for its fresh perspective and depth in the storytelling of subjects that shape our humanity and growth.
