by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten
Since they were in college together, the self-appointed members of The Dixie Swim Club are five headstrong Southern women, all grappling with middle age in their own way, and for one weekend every August, they bond over gossip and cocktails in a beachfront cottage in North Carolina.
OUR TOWN (April 24-May 3)
by Thornton Wilder
Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer prize winning play Our Town first opened on Broadway in 1938, and has since become an absolutely beloved part of the American theater repertoire. Its tender, delicate portrait of small-town, ordinary lives has come to have an extraordinary resonance, partly thanks to the bold but simple, stripped back simplicity of its storytelling.
WATCH ON THE RHINE (June 12-21)
by Lillian Hellman
The play is set in 1941 in the Washington, D.C., home of the wealthy widow Fanny Farrelly, who is expecting the arrival of her daughter Sara, Sara’s German husband Kurt, and their three children. From a light drawing room comedy the play gradually unfolds into a drama of espionage and intrigue. Watch on the Rhine won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award
CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF (August 21-30)
by Tennessee Williams
The setting is the Mississippi plantation of Big Daddy and his brood, gathered for the patriarch’s birthday and to celebrate his clean bill of health after extensive medical examinations. The play examines the relationships between members of Big Daddy’s family, primarily between his son Brick and Maggie ‘the cat’, Brick’s wife. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1955.
