Downstairs

by Theresa Rebeck
Directed by Julie Beckman
 
June 16th -  July 9th 2017
Performed at ACT
 
What happens when a brilliant lost soul comes to stay in his sister’s basement and refuses to leave? And if the menacing brother-in-law doesn’t approve?  In a dog-eat-dog world, these siblings find a haven of sorts in an unfinished basement as they attempt to make sense of the past and negotiate how to move forward into the future.  Unusual relationships, power plays, and surprising humor abound in Theresa Rebeck’s compelling new play which explores the nature of family, of memory, and of sanity. 
 
 
 

BURN THIS

by Lanford Wilson
Directed by Corey McDaniel
 
October 27th thru November 18th 2017
Performed at 12th Ave Arts
 
A young dancer's accidental death uproots the lives of four people who, through their shared grief, confront personal passions and unexpected desire. Their emotional honesty and struggle for liberation exemplifies the strength, humor, and complexity of all Wilson's work.  Dangerous, sexy, and raw, Burn This is widely considered to be Wilson’s masterpiece and confirms his standing as one of America's greatest playwrights. 
 
 
 

HAPPIEST SONG PLAYS LAST

by Quiara Alegría Hudes
Directed by Julie Beckman
 
March 23rd – April 14th 2018
Performed at 12th Ave Arts
 
Iraq War vet Elliot Ortiz has a bright new career working in Hollywood action films. While shooting on location in Jordan, with the tumultuous Arab Spring rumbling nearby, he finds that his wartime dreams and nightmares have followed him into his new life.  At the same time, halfway around the world in a cozy North Philadelphia kitchen, his cousin Yaz takes on a heroic new role of her own: as the heart and soul of her crumbling community.  This powerful sequel to Quiara Alegría Hudes’ Water by the Spoonful (produced by Theatre22 in 2015) is a tale of two young adults who cross the globe in search of connection, redemption, and their place in the world.
 
 
 

Sings the Hits

by Scotto Moore
Directed by Katie McKellar

T22 Second Stages:  Plays in Rep with Burn This on Mondays thru Wednesdays 
 
Last years Can't Talk Right Now introduced us to the radio show Signal Loss, a love letter to the analog era. Now its host, Amanda Bixby, is back with a new episode that faces down multi-generational sexism and racism in the music industry. While interviewing a hot young rock singer, Amanda learns that the singer's hit new record includes a sample from a supposedly lost jazz recording from decades earlier. As Amanda struggles to help the rock singer escape her abusive manager, she must unravel the secret story of how the jazz recording was lost and what happened to the forgotten musicians who performed on it.
