The Revolutionists

by Lauren Gunderson
Oct. 17 - 21, 2018
Arena Stage, Performing Arts Center

A playwright, an assassin, a former queen, and a Haitian rebel hang out, murder Marat, lose their heads, and try to beat back the extremist insanity of revolutionary Paris' Reign of Terror. It's about feminism and terrorism, violence and legacy, art and how we go actually go about changing the world. 


by Jean Anouilh
Dec. 5 - 9, 2018
Center Stage, Performing Arts Center

Ethics and egos collide as a reluctant dictator and a headstrong young woman engage in a deadly struggle of pride and power.  Written in Nazi-occupied France, Anouilh's version of Sophocles' classic tragedy offers a darkly complex view of an authoritarian regime, plumbing a dangerous middle ground between cynicism and idealism.

15-year-old Christopher Boone knows every prime number up to 7507 but has never ventured alone beyond the end of his street.  When a neighbor's dog is found dead, Christopher becomes determined to find the killer; propelling a chaotic journey that will challenge everything he thought he knew.
