Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company Announces 2021-22 Season

Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company has announced the lineup for its 2021-22 season.

"With gratitude, humility, and incredible excitement, Woolly is the future! We are finally bringing our most eagerly anticipated projects to the DMV that we had to put on pause because of the pandemic," says artistic director Maria Manuela Goyanes.

"From playwrights like Mike Lew and Pulitzer Prize-Winner Michael R. Jackson to creator/performers like Paola Lazaro, Toshi Reagon, and Ryan J. Haddad, these are visionaries whose art was - and is - so far ahead of it's time that we had to create a future for them right now. Their future is bright and so is Woolly's. And where we're going, we don't need roads."

The company has brought back its Golden Ticket, which allows you to see all of the shows in the season for a discounted price. Learn more at
