The Cake
Sept 13-Oct 1, 2017 Della makes cakes, not judgment calls. But when the daughter of an old friend reappears in her life with a new surprise, Della is forced to re-examine some of her deeply-held beliefs. Food, faith, and family loyalty collide in a paradigm-shifting comedy that’s sure to leave you hungry for more.


Sense and Sensibility
Oct 18-Nov 5, 2017 Playwright Kate Hamill gives us a fresh, comic take on Jane Austen’s beloved novel. This eminently theatrical adaptation follows the fortunes (and misfortunes) of the Dashwood sisters—sensible Elinor and hypersensitive Marianne—as they learn to navigate gossipy late 18th-century England after their father’s sudden death.


Dot
Dot
Nov 22-Dec 10, 2017 This touching and funny play examines the fragility of the mind and shifting family dynamics in the heart of a West Philly neighborhood. Dotty, the family matriarch, must fight to maintain a grasp on her fading memory as siblings collide in a riotous and raw familial brawl, where losing your mind and losing your sanity are two different things.


A Christmas Carol
Dec 13-17, 2017 Longtime company member Ray Dooley embodies the classic tale of Ebenezer Scrooge. Bring the whole family to this witty and warm journey through a lifetime of Christmases to find redemption, charity, and love.


Tartuffe
Feb 3-Mar11, 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 3-Mar 11, 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.


Where Did We Sit On The Bus
April 25-29, 2018 Fresh from an Off-Broadway run, Brian Quijada’s electric one-man show pulses with rhythm, music, and spoken word as he examines what it means to be Latino in America.
