Harbor Stage Company Announces its Seventh Season

Harbor Stage Company Announces its Seventh SeasonThe Harbor Stage Company, the artist-run ensemble that produces intrepid, live performance on the shores of Wellfleet Harbor, will launch a seventh season of ambitious, authentic theater.

The Harbor's 2018 season will open Thursday, June 14th with Conor McPherson's spellbinding drama, The Weir. When a stranger happens into a sleepy Irish pub, she and a band of local bachelors embark on an unexpectedly eerie evening. Co-founder Stacy Fischer

makes her much anticipated return to the Harbor in this intimate portrait of community and confession. Artistic Director Robert Kropf will helm the ensemble piece, running through

Saturday, July 7th.

Next up will be the company's take on Edward Albee's tempestuous masterpiece,

Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Shrewd and savage, this modern classic nimbly dismantles

the American Dream over the course of a late-night, liquor-infused house party. Co-founders Kropf and Brenda Withers will appear as Albee's infamously volatile couple, George and Martha; Harbor favorite Molly Kimmerling (The Kritik, Three Sisters) joins the cast as Honey. Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? will play Thursday, July 12th through Saturday, August 4th.

Rounding out the season is the World Premiere of The Deer and the Antelope, a new dark comedy. Penned by Withers, the piece examines rising tensions in a gentrifying neighborhood and how a disconnected community handles the repurcussions of "random" violence. Harbor co-founder Jonathan Fielding will make his eagerly awaited return in this offbeat meditation on law-and-order, personal responsibility, and the hidden costs of making a living. The Deer and the Antelope runs Thursday, August 9th through Saturday, September 2nd.

In keeping with the company's mission to present great plays at affordable prices for the right

reasons, and thanks to the generosity of season sponsors WOMR Community Radio and Kathleen Nagle at Kinlin Grover Real Estate, single tickets for the 2018 season will remain priced at $23 and will go on sale in April. Three Play Subscriptions are available for $65 and the group will once again host a Pay-What-You-Can night on the First Friday of each production's run. More information on performance dates, donations, and individual ensemble members can be found at harborstage.org.
