A Hidden Life by Randy Neale: August 18 - September 10; Four actors share the remarkable and quiet brilliance of one woman’s life from her impoverished birth on a dirt farm in Canada, through her life as a young widow and mother in Detroit during the depression, to the satisfaction of her matriarchy of a huge extended family.
Clyde’s by Lynn Nottage: January 12 - February 4, 2023; Creating the perfect sandwich is the shared quest of the formerly incarcerated kitchen staff of Clyde’s, a truck stop cafe. Even as the shop’s mischievous owner tries to keep them under her thumb, the staffers are given purpose and permission to dream.
Septima Clark by Patricia Lessane: March 10 - April 1, 2023; In cooperation with the League of Women Voters of the Charleston Area, Septima Clark is a World Premiere play celebrating the life of Septima Poinsette Clark, an African American educator and civil rights activist.
Compulsion: Or the House Behind by Rinne Grof: April 20 - May 13, 2023; Sid Silver is a man obsessed. When he learns about a young girl named Anne Frank and her extraordinary diary, Silver makes it his mission to ensure her tale is heard. But is the manuscript a work of art? A cultural treasure? Once publishers and producers get involved, it becomes “a very valuable product” - and his good intentions prove to be his undoing.
