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 back...to 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 https://www.woollymammoth.net/box-office/golden-ticket.

Review: INCENDIARY at Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company

Let me tell you a bit about myself. Even before the death of George Floyd and the political earthquake that followed, I have long been of the opinion that drastic and systemic changes are needed in the American judicial system. When I covered Gaithersburg city government for the Montgomery Sentinel, I took a knee during the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance at the beginning of the city council meetings. I do the same when the 'Star Spangled Banner' plays at Washington Nationals games. On the wall above my desk where I'm writing this, I have tacked up the front page of the Washington Post from April 21, 2021, announcing Derek Chauvin's conviction for murder the previous day. I oppose the death penalty. I admire works that effectively explore generational trauma and make use of innovative storytelling techniques, including blending genres. For all these reasons, when I read the description of 'Incendiary,' written by Dave Harris and directed by Monty Cole, which recently opened at Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company, I expected to like it. I didn't.
