PATRICK J. ADAMS, JULIAN CIHI, HIRAM DELGADO, BRANDON J. DIRDEN, JESSE TYLER FERGUSON, CARL LUNDSTEDT, KEN MARKS, MICHAEL OBERHOLTZER, EDUARDO RAMOS, TYLER LANSING WEAKS, 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.

A NEW PLAY BY

LYNN NOTTAGE

DIRECTED BY

KATE WHORISKEY

 

In this stirring new play from the team of two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage and director Kate Whoriskey (Ruined, Sweat), a truck stop sandwich shop offers its formerly incarcerated kitchen staff a shot at reclaiming their lives. Even as the shop’s callous owner tries to keep them under her thumb, the staff members are given purpose and permission to dream by the enigmatic, zen-like chef and his belief in the possibility of the perfect sandwich. Funny, moving, and urgent, it’s an example of Nottage’s “genius for bringing politically charged themes to life by embodying them in ordinary characters living ordinary lives” (The Wall Street Journal).

The production is supported by a grant from the Art for Justice Fund, a sponsored project of Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors.

LETTERS OF SURESH

BY

RAJIV JOSEPH

DIRECTED BY

MAY ADRALES

In Letters Of Suresh, playwright Rajiv Joseph reveals intimate mysteries through a series of letters between strangers, friends, daughters, and lovers — many with little in common but a hunger for human connection. ​Sending their hopes and dreams across oceans and years, they seek peace in one another while dreaming of a city once consumed by the scourge of war. ​A companion piece to Joseph’s play Animals Out of PaperLetters Of Suresh, directed by May Adrales, is the latest work from the Pulitzer Prize-short listed playwright hailed as “wonderfully daring, imaginative, and compassionate” (The New York Times).

 

Letters of Suresh was commissioned with support of a grant from the Time Warner Foundation.
