SKELETON CREW by Dominique Morisseau is a strikingly beautiful and powerful portrait of the lives of blue-collar workers at the end of an era from one of the most produced playwrights in the country. SMALL MOUTH SOUNDS by Bess Wohl is a comedy which centers around a group of strangers gathered at silent retreat and invites audiences to forget everything they think they know about the need for dialogue in theatre and listen to all that’s left unspoken. EVERYBODY by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins is an adventurous riff on the medieval morality play EVERYMAN. TEENAGE DICK by Mike Lew is a comedy-infused high school re-telling of Shakespeare’s RICHARD III. A DOLL’S HOUSE, PART 2 by Lucas Hnath is a comedic powerhouse play which delighted Broadway audiences last year. WOLF PLAY by Hansol Jung, Artists Rep’s third Table|Room|Stage commission, grapples with the meaning of family. THE REVOLUTIONISTS by Lauren Gunderson is a play about four amazing (and historically accurate!) women who are out to save the world during the French Revolution.
In addition to the mainstage line-up, Artists Rep is partnering again with the Portland Institute of Contemporary Arts’ Time-Based Arts Festival (TBA), with an interactive piece called UNEXPLODED ORDNANCES by Split Britches. For the 2018/19 season, Artists Rep offers a full-fledged holiday classic with IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE: A LIVE RADIO PLAY by Joe Landry.
