DIRECTED BY

MICHAEL GREIF

WITH

When does real life collide with make believe? For the four Conlee kids, ages 5 to 10, playing house is no longer a game when their parents inexplicably disappear. Thirty-two years later, their search for answers continues. Bess Wohl returns to Second Stage after her funny and poignant play, American Hero, with a look inside the minds of children, their parents and the mysteries of childhood that haunt us forever.

Make Believe is funded in part by a grant from the Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation.

BY

TRACY LETTS

DIRECTED BY

DEXTER BULLARD

WITH
IAN BARFORD, SALLY MURPHY, CAROLINE NEFF, CHANTAL THUY, JIM TRUE-FROST, CORA VANDER BROEK, TROY WEST

Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award® winner Tracy Letts (August: Osage County) returns to Second Stage (Mary Page Marlowe, Man from Nebraska) with a brutally comedic look at Wheeler, a 50-year-old divorcee in the throes of a mid-life spiral. Just out of his ex-wife’s garage and into a place of his own, Wheeler starts on a path toward self-discovery — navigating blind dates, old friends, and new love. Full of opinions, yet short on self-examination, Wheeler must reconcile the man he has become with the man he wants to be.

“Might just be Mr. Letts’ best play yet!” - The Wall Street Journal

This Steppenwolf Theatre production of Linda Vista is presented in association with Center Theatre Group.

The Underlying Chris, a world premiere play from Pulitzer Prize finalist Will Eno, is a life-affirming and high-spirited look at how a person comes into their identity, and how sometimes it’s life’s tiniest moments that most profoundly change our lives.

GRAND HORIZONS

BY

BESS WOHL

DIRECTED BY

LEIGH SILVERMAN

WITH
PRISCILLA LOPEZ, MAULIK PANCHOLY, ASHLEY PARK, MICHAEL URIE

 

Bill and Nancy have spent fifty full years as husband and wife. They practically breathe in unison, and can anticipate each other's every sigh, snore and sneeze. But just as they settle comfortably into their new home in Grand Horizons, the unthinkable happens: Nancy suddenly wants out. As their two adult sons struggle to cope with the shocking news, they are forced to question everything they assumed about the people they thought they knew best. By turns funny, shocking and painfully honest, Bess Wohl's new play explores a family turned upside-down and takes an intimate look at the wild, unpredictable, and enduring nature of love.

Grand Horizons is co-commissioned by Williamstown Theatre Festival and Second Stage Theater.

The commission is supported by a grant from The William and Mary Greve Foundation.

Grand Horizons is sponsored by American Express.

TAKE ME OUT

BY

RICHARD GREENBERG

DIRECTED BY

SCOTT ELLIS

WITH
JESSE TYLER FERGUSON & JESSE WILLIAMS
In this Tony Award®-winning Best Play, playwright Richard Greenberg celebrates the personal and professional intricacies of America’s favorite pastime. When Darren Lemming, the star center fielder for the Empires, comes out of the closet, the reception off the field reveals a barrage of long-held unspoken prejudices. Facing some hostile teammates and fraught friendships, Darren is forced to contend with the challenges of being a gay person of color within the confines of a classic American institution. As the Empires struggle to rally toward a championship season, the players and their fans begin to question tradition, their loyalties, and the price of victory.

Please note: Take Me Out contains nudity.

In this fierce and feverish world premiere comedy from WP Theater and Second Stage, a gang of teenage girls gathers in an abandoned treehouse to summon the ghost of Pablo Escobar. Are they messing with the actual spirit of the infamous cartel kingpin? Or are they really just messing with each other? A rollercoaster ride through the danger and damage of girlhood-the teenage wasteland has never been so much twisted fun.
