Our 25th Anniversary Season
the power of vulnerability
This season we’re collaborating with an extraordinary roster of artists, who bring an array of perspectives to the stage. What they have in common is the courage to be vulnerable and to share that strength with the world.

THE GENTLEMAN CALLER
a new play by Philip Dawkins
directed by Tony Speciale
NEW YORK PREMIERE
Although now regarded as two of history’s finest American playwrights, back in 1944, William Inge and Tennessee Williams hadn’t yet experienced anything close to success. The Gentleman Caller, a new play by Philip Dawkins (Charm, Le Switch, The Homosexuals), takes us back in time before the Chicago premiere of The Glass Menagerie. Inge, a dissatisfied newspaper critic, invites Williams to his St. Louis apartment for an interview. This sexy, fraught rendezvous sparks a relationship, which radically alters the course of their lives and the American Theatre.

THE FRUIT TRILOGY
by Eve Ensler
directed by Mark Rosenblatt
NEW YORK PREMIERE
From global activist and Tony Award winner Eve Ensler (The Vagina Monologues, The Good Body), comes the New York Premiere of a triptych of short plays, each giving a voice to defiant, ordinary women: Pomegranate — two women for sale, another morning on the shelf; Avocado — a young woman on her chaotic, shocking journey toward freedom; and Coconut — from the bliss of her bathroom, a woman connects with the one thing she has never fully owned … her body. Woven together with dark humor, extraordinary vulnerability and heightened theatricality, these short plays explore the humanity behind the headlines.
