This year Southern Rep adds our venue to the New Orleans Fringe Festival, November 19-21 at 7 pm with the extraordinary and sizzling comedy INCENDIARY by Adam Szymkowicz directed by Damon Arrington. Featuring Tony Award winner Michael Cerveris and Southern Rep Artistic Director Aimée Hayes.
 
In INCENDIARY, Elise is a pyromaniac fire chief who falls in love with Jake, the detective investigating her fires. Carrie, Elise's therapist, is trying to get her to stop lighting fires and Carrie's husband, Gary, is leading the life of a somewhat ineffective corporate spy. See how many ways there are to make a fire!

Southern Rep continues its 24th season as the region's premiere professional theatre, producing bold world and regional premieres under the leadership of Artistic Director Aimée Hayes and Managing Director, Marieke Gaboury. In addition to an exciting Mainstage season that takes us on a journey from the dining room table to a 19th Century doctor's examining table to a magical realm inhabited by mythical creatures,  Southern Rep @ Le Chat Noir offers a Second Stage season of eclectic, smart, silly and audacious theatrical fare. Southern Rep continues to offer educational programs such as free student matinees, $10 student rush tickets and Academy SRT; as well as providing an artistic home to new works in development in the annual New Play Bacchanal. In Fall 2010, Southern Rep launched a new play award for women of color playwrights, The Ruby Prize, named in honor of civil rights advocate Ruby Bridges.
