The Children

Previews Begin: Tuesday, November 28, 2017

Opening Night: Tuesday, December 12, 2017

Synopsis

Direct from an acclaimed run in London, the powerful Royal Court Theatre production of Lucy Kirkwood’s astonishing new play will make its American debut at MTC with the heralded original cast. In a remote cottage on the lonely British coast, a couple of retired nuclear engineers are living a very quiet life. Outside, the world is in utter chaos following a devastating series of events. When an old friend turns up at their door, they’re shocked to discover the real reason for her visit. The Mail on Sunday calls The Children “beautifully written and superbly acted.” Hailed by The Independent as “the most rewarding dramatist of her generation,” playwright Lucy Kirkwood makes her highly anticipated New York debut. Directing is the award-winning James Macdonald (Top Girls at MTC).

The Children stars the original Royal Court Theatre cast: BAFTA Award winner Francesca Annis (BBC’s “Cranford”), two-time Olivier Award nominee Ron Cook (Juno and the Paycock at The Donmar), and Outer Critics Circle Award winner Deborah Findlay (National Theatre’s Stanley).

The Children is a Royal Court Theatre production.

Lead support for The Children has been provided by MTC’s Producing Fund Partner, Andrew Martin-Weber. Additional support for The Children is provided by The Laura Pels International Foundation for Theater. The Children is the recipient of a Berwin Lee New Play Commission.

Synopsis

Three-time Tony Award nominee Condola Rashad (A Doll’s House, Part 2) will star as one of history’s greatest heroines in a major new production of Bernard Shaw’s epic work directed by Daniel Sullivan (Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes).

When the nation’s rulers become threatened by her popularity and influence, they unite to bring her down and she finds herself on trial for her life. This timeless and powerful play dramatizes the limits of an individual in a society dominated by overwhelming political and religious forces.

The Portuguese Kid

Previews Begin: Tuesday, September 19, 2017

Opening Night: Tuesday, October 24, 2017

NOW EXTENDED THRU DECEMBER 3!

Synopsis

In Providence, Rhode Island, habitually widowed Atalanta (Sherie Rene Scott) pays a visit to her second-rate lawyer Barry Dragonetti (Jason Alexander). Intending to settle her latest husband’s affairs, this larger-than-life Greek tightwad quickly becomes a nightmare for her cheesy, self-aggrandizing attorney. Add Barry’s impossible Croatian mother (Mary Testa), a dash of current politics and a couple of opportunistic young lovers, and you have in hand a recipe for comic combustion. This feisty romantic comedy could only come from John Patrick Shanley, the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the MTC hits Doubt and Outside Mullingar, and the Academy Award-winning screenwriter of Moonstruck.

Running Time: 1 hour, 40 minutes, with no intermission

Special thanks to The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust for supporting Manhattan Theatre Club. The Portuguese Kid is a recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New Play Award.

Synopsis

The Tony Award-winning author, performer and activist Eve Ensler, whose The Vagina Monologues is an international sensation, comes to MTC with a powerful new play based on her critically acclaimed memoir. While working with women suffering from the ravages of war in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ensler was stunned by a life-threatening diagnosis.  Told with her signature brand of humor, Ensler’s personal journey uncovers surprising connections between her body and the earth and how illness can be both transformative and transcendent. Directing this bold, unflinching and inspiring piece is Tony Award winner Diane Paulus (Waitress, Pippin).

In the Body of the World is an American Repertory Theater production.

Additional support for In the Body of the World is provided by the Howard Gilman Foundation.

Dan Cody's Yacht

Previews Begin: Tuesday, May 15, 2018

Opening Night: Wednesday, June 6, 2018

Synopsis

In a small Boston suburb, a single schoolteacher is struggling to get by when the wealthy father of one of her students surprises her with a financial proposal that could change her daughter’s life. Suddenly, their worlds collide in ways that open up the question: what truly separates the haves and the have nots? Is it wrong to seize an incredible chance, even if the circumstances seem questionable? Loosely inspired by a passage from “The Great Gatsby”, this timely new play by the author of The City of Conversation probes the troubling relationship of finance to educational opportunity in American life today. Directing is Tony winner Doug Hughes (The Father and Doubt at MTC).

Additional support for Dan Cody’s Yacht is provided by the Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation. Dan Cody’s Yacht is a recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New Play Award. Dan Cody’s Yacht was commissioned by Manhattan Theatre Club.

"Explosive, timely & riveting. Ziegler's new drama creates a portrait of a generation" -The Boston Globe
"Gripping. Beautifully rendered and complex... Destined to trigger discussion” -The Los Angeles Times
"The characters are as finely etched as in a good novel, and as satisfying” -LA Weekly

Synopsis

At a raucous party during their freshman year at Princeton, Tom (Joshua Boone) and Amber (Alexandra Socha) connect in ways that seem innocent enough at first. But as things progress, they find themselves in murky territory, with ramifications that could affect the rest of their lives. What actually happened between them? Tackling the highly charged topic of sexual consent, this hit production direct from Williamstown Theatre Festival explores the intersection of gender and race on campus today, offering “a portrait of a generation” (The Boston Globe). This deeply felt, funny and thought-provoking play comes from fast-rising playwright Anna Ziegler (Photograph 51) and is directed by Obie Award winner Lileana Blain-Cruz (Pipeline).

Actually is presented in association with Williamstown Theatre Festival.

Major support for The Studio at Stage II – Harold and Mimi Steinberg New Play Series is provided by The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust.

Synopsis

On a plantation during the Civil War, a mystical tree stretches toward heaven. It protects James, a young slave, while he reads newspapers about the imminent possibility of freedom, as the battle rages on. When a brooding stranger arrives, James and his makeshift family take the man in. Soon, an unexpected bond leads to a striking romance, and everyone is in uncharted territory. But is love powerful enough to set your true self free? This lyrical and lushly realized play is part of poet, filmmaker and playwright Donja R. Love’s exploration of queer love at pivotal moments in Black history. Directing is Saheem Ali (Kill Move Paradise).
