Crimes of the Heart by Beth Henley (February 2013)
This Pulitzer prize winning play graces the stage in February 2013. Crimes of the Heart follows the story of the tragically and hilariously flawed Magrath sisters who are reunited when the youngest, Babe, is on the verge of a meltdown. A sentimental and rib-tickling comment on womanhood, the affect of childhood tragedy on the adult life, and the power of sisterhood.
Bug by Tracy Letts (March 2013)
A co-production with the talented artists of Ghostlight Theatre Club; BUG is a thriller examining conspiracy theories, the infectious nature of paranoia, and one woman’s slow descent into madness. Set in a seedy Oklahoma City motel, Bug (one of Oklahoma playwright Tracy Letts’ earlier plays) has been called “a riveting thriller of paranoia and an instant guilty pleasure.” -Hollywood Reporter Native American New Play Festival (April 2013)
Celebrating the Native playwright, the NANPF will feature a fully-staged production of Season 13′s festival winning play and staged readings of new 2013 submissions. The festival will also present several opportunities to sample the artistry of Native American artists, singers, and dancers as well as the chance to mix and mingle with these talentedÂ individuals.
