Season 8 is Just About Here

We are coming to the end of the run of birds. And with the end of birds come the end of Season 7. I know it seems just a short while ago I was tatalizing you all with details of a Season that included the darkness of Monster, the comedy and mystery of Rough Magic, the sleek sexiness of References . . . and the world premiere of birds.

What is next you might ask?

Well here is Season 8 my friends. Buckle in and get ready for a season that will knock your socks off (if you are still wearing them):

KIT MARLOWE
BY DAVID GRIMM

November 2007

Part of the Shakespeare Theatre Company's CHRISTOPHER MARLOWE FESTIVAL

Hungry for adventure and a way to make his mark, Christopher Marlowe becomes a spy for a dark wing of the British government. Set in the seedy underworld of Elizabethan England, the story charts the meteoric rise and fall of Kit Marlowe—playwright, poet, spy and sexual outlaw.
"…fiendishly entertaining and wildly sensational…" —Time Out

THE SKIN OF OUR TEETH
BY THORNTON WILDER

February 2008

“Ladies and gentlemen, don’t take this play serious. The world’s not coming to an end – you know it’s not. People exaggerate. Most people really have enough to eat and a roof over their heads. Nobody actually starves – you can always eat grass or something – that ice business – why, it was a long, long time ago” - Sabina, Skin of our Teeth, Act 1
Cain and Abel. Dinosaurs. Global climate change. Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize winning comedy about the end of the world.

DREAM SAILORS
BY RANDY BAKER

World Premiere Begins
March 2008 and continues through May with a new "episode" every three weeks

Four friends, drawn together by their uniquely powerful ability to lucid dream, discover a dead man in their basement. One of the four friends is the killer and the only way to solve the mystery is by returning to their dreams. Each episode told from the perspective of a different dreamer, the plays take place in reality and in the dark landscape of their dreams.

THIS STORM IS WHAT WE CALL PROGRESS
BY JASON GROTE

July 2008

A young man stumbles into a dusty old recording studio haunted by ghosts and run by a sinister old woman and her beautiful assistant. In this ancient and powerful place he is drawn into a world of Jewish mysticism and kabalistic ritual and discovers that he may be more than he thought, quite possibly even the Messiah. This production introduces playwright Jason Grote to Washington, an exciting young voice in American Theatre, exploding in regional theatres across the country.

You know I logged on thinking...wonder what Rorschach's doing next year - not realizing it was the reveal day. The season sounds really interesting. Many different avenues. Cool.
