Life of Galileo
BY BERTOLT BRECHT
DIRECTED BY VIVIENNE BENESCH

HOW LONG CAN A TRUTH BE DENIED?

Galileo Galilei: father, hero, heretic. When a chance discovery leads to evidence of a seismic shift in scientific thinking, Galileo sparks a dangerous dispute with authority. To challenge the idea that the earth is the centre of the universe is to challenge the all-powerful Roman Catholic Church. Brecht’s dramatisation of the battle between belief and reason considers whether proof matters when dogma reigns. Featuring original music by Justin Ellington and directed by PlayMakers’ Producing Artistic Director Vivienne Benesch.


How I Learned to Drive
BY PAULA VOGEL
DIRECTED BY LEE SUNDAY EVANS

A SURVIVOR’S GUIDE TO THE RULES OF THE ROAD

At once compassionate, heartbreaking, and unexpectedly funny, this Pulitzer Prize-winning play chronicles one woman’s journey to break the cycle—and silence—surrounding her sexual abuse at the hands of a beloved family member. A story of boundaries, personal agency, and how hindsight is not always 20/20, How I Learned to Drive has earned its place in the contemporary American theatre canon and achieves a powerful new resonance in the era of #MeToo and #TimesUp.


Your Healing Is Killing Me
BY VIRGINIA GRISE

A PERFORMANCE MANIFESTO

When a health system based in capitalism meets a Queer, Chicana body, its full limitations come into sharp focus. The result is a manifesto full of clarity into the revolution that must come in order for our society to truly care for its most vulnerable.
