The 2017–18 Season

by Suzan-Lori Parks
Directed by Elizabeth Diamond

Feb/Mar 2018
A.C.T.’s Geary Theater

“Extraordinary . . . epic . . . endlessly stimulating”
The New York Times

“Thrilling . . . a masterpiece”
New York Magazine

From Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan-Lori Parks (Topdog/Underdog) comes an explosively powerful and lyrical new play set against the backdrop of the Civil War. In this epic American take on The Odyssey, Southern slave Hero faces a terrible choice: to seek his freedom by fighting for the Confederacy alongside his master or to stay home with the woman and people he loves. A poignant and musical journey in three succinct acts, Parks mixes contemporary wit, folk ballads, and classical traditions to tell a timeless story of freedom, heroism, and belonging. By turns comic and heartbreaking, Father Comes Home from the Wars is a mythic journey through the American soul from one of our most accomplished contemporary playwrights.

 

by Qui Nguyen
Directed by Jaime Castañeda

Feb/Mar 2018
A.C.T.’s Strand Theater

“Hip, high-wire theatricality . . . sultry sexiness . . . quirky playfulness”
The Seattle Times

An off-Broadway hit, Vietgone is a modern twist on the classic story of boy-meets-girl. In this irreverent new comedy, three young Vietnamese immigrants leave a war-torn country for an eye-opening journey across the bewildering and foreign landscape that is 1970s America. A vibrant mash-up of pop culture references, audacious dialogue, and an action-packed road trip that instantaneously moves from hilarity to heart-wrenching drama, Vietgone played to sold-out houses at 2016’s Oregon Shakespeare Festival and New York’s Manhattan Theatre Club. This sexy, sassy, freewheeling ride, backed by its hip-hop and Motown rhythms, will roar into The Strand in an all-new production.

 

by Harold Pinter
Featuring Marco Barricelli, Judith Ivey, and Scott Wentworth
Directed by Carey Perloff

Jan 2018
A.C.T.’s Geary Theater

“Delicious, impalpable and hair-raising
The Sunday Times

A.C.T. returns to the world of Harold Pinter for our first staging of his classic drama The Birthday Party, featuring A.C.T. favorite Marco Barricelli, Tony Award–winner Judith Ivey, and Stratford Festival star Scott Wentworth.

In an undisturbed English seaside town, the inhabitants of a ramshackle boarding house react to the arrival of two unsettling strangers. Where do the mysterious Goldberg and McCann come from? Who sent them? And why do they keep asking about piano player Stanley Webber? As the party guests, including flighty Lula and flirty landlady Meg, gather for Stanley’s birthday, the desperate pianist is forced to confront a surreal interrogation. Seething with mystery, danger, and sudden humor, this is signature Pinter, a play of “tantalizing theatricality” (The New York Times).
 

. . . and four more shows to be announced soon!
