Tartuffe
Feb 3-Mar 11, 2018 The man of the house has lost his mind. He has been blinded by the counterfeit zeal of a penniless scoundrel who fully intends to make off with his wife, his livelihood, and probably the kitchen sink. This modern interpretation of Molière’s most popular play is as intense and incisive as the day it was written, and just as entertaining. Theatre’s most devout conman returns to PlayMakers after 25 years.


The Christians
Feb 1-Mar 9, 2018 Twenty years ago, Pastor Paul’s church was nothing more than a modest storefront, but his new ideas about the nature of salvation may just turn his congregation of thousands back into a congregation of one. In this probing new play, Lucas Hnath invites us to explore how our own uncertainty can help us live compassionately among those who don’t share our beliefs.


Leaving Eden
April 4-22, 2018 Acclaimed playwright Mike Wiley returns to PlayMakers with singer-songwriter Laurelyn Dossett to explore, through words and music, the cyclical nature of human behavior. A story of racial tension, immigration, and economic crisis in a small North Carolina town—this unearthing of yesterday yields a hopeful hymn for our future.
