Contemporary slang meets 17th-century farce in The School for Lies. Adapted from Molière's The Misanthrope, playwright David Ives (Venus in Fur, All in the Timing) transforms Molière's classic into a modern satire told entirely through verse. The result is a delightfully incongruous comedy of manners that lets you peer inside the Parisian salon of Celimene, a young widow with a sharp tongue and plenty of suitors. Teresa Thuman and Ken Michels co-direct this Center Theatre production, in which a saucy siren finally meets her misanthropic match. Learn More

How to Write a New Book for the Bible*_
January 13 – February 5, 2012
by Bill Cain
Directed by Kent Nicholson
A world-premiere co-production with Berkeley Repertory Theatre
Writers are told to write what they know. But as Bill Cain discovers in writing about his own family, sometimes those we are closest to are the biggest mysteries of all. From the writer of Equivocation comes a beautiful new play taken from Cain’s own experiences caring for his dying mother. He asks the questions that speak to the heart of every family: What will never change … and what has to? A Jesuit priest as well as a playwright, Cain brings a fascinating view to this simple, powerful illustration of why the details of our lives and loves matter.

I Am My Own Wife
February 3 – March 4, 2012
by Doug Wright
Directed by Jerry Manning
Not long after the fall of the Berlin Wall, playwright Doug Wright (Quills_) began a conversation with Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, an elegant and eccentric 65-year-old German transvestite who, against all odds, hid from the Nazis in plain sight as a woman. Wright uses more than 30 characters — all played here by the masterful Nick Garrison (_This, 5th Avenue’s Cabaret, Hedwig and the Angry Inch worldwide) — to piece together Charlotte’s controversial life. The winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play, I Am My Own Wife is a profound story of survival.

by John Logan
Directed by Richard E.T. White
Produced in association with Arizona Theatre Company
“What do you see?” Famed abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko asks his young assistant, Ken, the loaded question. What’s art? And who gets to decide anyway? It’s 1958, and Rothko has just been offered the biggest commission in the history of modern art. He and Ken work feverishly in his New York studio—until Ken begins to realize his answers to those fundamental questions about art are very different than his mentor’s. Winner of six Tony Awards, this sizzling 90-minute drama is one of the most intellectually riveting shows to hit Broadway last season.

Aphra Behn is England’s first female professional playwright … and a spy. She’s just quit the espionage business to write her first play, and she’s on deadline when her former lover blazes in with enemies on his heels. To complicate things, the city’s hottest actress, Nell Gwynne, is getting awfully friendly — and, for that matter, so is the king (as in Charles II). Set in Restoration England, this playful farce is a rush of mad-cap antics, gender bending, and rollicking intrigue.

A spin on Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun, this razor-sharp new satire takes a jab at race and real estate in a Chicago neighborhood’s past and present. The play begins in 1959 as a black family moves into a white enclave. Act Two takes us back to the same house in 2009 as gentrification sets in and the roles are reversed. One agile ensemble of actors play two sets of characters in the play the Washington Post deemed “one of its feistiest, funniest evenings in years.”
