PLAYWRIGHTS HORIZONS



The Thanksgiving Play

Written by Larissa FastHorse

Directed by Moritz von Stuelpnagel



Ah, Thanksgiving, that most American of holidays: when families gather to celebrate the warmth of home, the bounty of the harvest — and a legacy of genocide and violent colonial expansion. Good intentions collide with absurd assumptions in Larissa FastHorse’s wickedly funny satire, as a troupe of terminally “woke” teaching artists scrambles to create a pageant that somehow manages to celebrate both Turkey Day and Native American Heritage Month.

RATTLESTICK THEATER COMPANY



Lewiston/Clarkston

Written by Samuel D. hunter

Directed by Davis McCallum



A gutted theater. Two plays. One epic evening. An achingly human exploration of the end of the American experiment.

Each night, the two plays LEWISTON/CLARKSTON will be performed together, in an intimate space for a small audience of only 51 guests who will gather to watch, to share a catered meal between the two productions, and to consider as a community our place in the ongoing American experiment. The evening will run about 3.5 hours in total.

Together the plays focus on two modern-day descendants of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark. Set at a failing fireworks stand in Lewiston, Idaho, and across the river at a big box store in Clarkston, Washington, the plays LEWISTON and CLARKSTON share the essential question: what is the true legacy of the great American push West?

ROUNDABOUT THEATRE COMPANY


Bernhardt/Hamlet

Written by Theresa Rebeck

Directed by Moritz von Stuelpnagel



Mark Twain wrote: “There are five kinds of actresses: bad actresses, fair actresses, good actresses, great actresses. And then there is Sarah Bernhardt.” In 1897, the international stage celebrity set out to tackle her most ambitious role yet: Hamlet. Theresa Rebeck’s new play rollicks with high comedy and human drama, set against the lavish Shakespearean production that could make or break Bernhardt’s career. Janet McTeer, “one of the finest classical actresses of her generation” (The Telegraph), brings the legendary leading lady to life.

Apologia

You do not mess with Kristin Miller. In the 1960s, she was a radical activist and political protester. Now a celebrated art historian, the publication of her memoir threatens to split her family apart. But Kristin has never been one to shy away from a fight.

 

Direct from London, Alexi Kaye Campbell’s biting play makes its New York debut with the “Magnificent” (The Independent) Stockard Channing in a powerhouse performance as a woman facing the repercussions of her past. Apologia is a passionate, human and humorous clash of generations and beliefs—a lively look at yesterday’s rebels living in today’s reality.
