THE DIARY OF A MADMAN by Nikolai Gogol.

Adapted by David Holman with Neil Armfield & Geoffrey Rush.

September 20 – October 14, 2012

Do not miss this play which was a recent hit in New York starring Geoffrey Rush, The Diary of a Madman, as lowly civil servant Poprischin driven mad by bureaucracy. A burnt-out paper-pusher who ekes out a meager living in czarist St. Petersburg. Poprischin spends his days doing menial tasks, anxious and teetering on the brink of lunacy. Or is it lucidity? Immobilized by a rigid social hierarchy, Poprischin cuts adrift from reality: hallucinating a canine love affair, imagining himself well above his station, and conjuring entire realms both incredible and terrifying. Deeper and deeper he sinks into delusion, and—we, too, are eventually subsumed by a world in which reality is, at best, relative.

“A knockout: superbly realized, utterly mesmerizing and ultimately heartbreaking.” –ABC


by Conor McPherson

November 15 - December 9, 2012

From the writer of Mosaic’s Award Winning hit, The Seafarer, and the plays Shining City and The Weir, Mosaic presents the Southeastern Premiere of The Birds by Tony Award nominee Conor McPherson. This new play is a chilling psychological portrait inspired by Daphne Du Maurier’s short story (on which Hitchcock's famedthriller was loosely based). Set in an isolated, abandoned house in Cornwall, strangers Nat and Diane, with no electricity and little food, take refuge from the unnerving masses of birds that attack everyone around them.

“Deliciously chilling. Spring-loaded with tension. The result is a combination of Waiting for Godot and Jagged Edge: claustrophobic, questioning, frightening and with a twist.” – IRISH INDEPENDENT

“A Gothic thriller. McPherson keeps us on The Edge of our seat.” – IRISH TIMES

February 7 - March 17, 2013


A recent hit on Broadway starring Robin Williams, Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo makes its Southeastern Premiere at Mosaic and as part of Rep Project 2013, celebrates “one of the most provocatively talented American Playwrights to emerge in a long while.” The lives of two American Marines and an Iraqi translator are forever changed by an encounter with a quick-witted tiger that haunts the streets of war-torn Baghdad attempting to find meaning, forgiveness and redemption amidst the city’s ruins. This groundbreaking new American play explores both the power and the perils of human nature.

Rajiv Joseph’s smart, savagely funny and visionary new work of American Theater. A majestic, richly conceived play with fanciful humor and cleareyed compassion.” – Charles Isherwood, NY Times

February 8 - March 17, 2013

When a world-renowned origami artist opens her studio to a teenage prodigy and his school teacher, she discovers that life and love can't be arranged neatly in this drama about finding the perfect fold.

"Mr. Joseph's observant, pitch-perfect script … is really quite ambitious, dealing ruthlessly … with the fragility of happiness, the tragedy of impulsiveness and the tenuousness of hope." – NY Times

"You'll find plenty to educate and charm you in Rajiv Joseph's delicately explosive new play Animals out of Paper… sharp-edged exploration …searingly simple, but richly satisfying, drama." – Talkin' Broadway


June 6 – 30, 2013

The final show of the season is currently in negotiation and will be announced shortly.
