Previews Begin: Tuesday, November 28, 2017

Opening Night: Thursday, December 14, 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 will star the original Royal Court Theatre cast: BAFTA Award winner Francesca Annis (BBC’s “Cranford”), Olivier Award nominee Ron Cook (Juno and the Paycock at The Donmar), and Outer Critics Circle Award winner Deborah Findlay (RSC’s Stanley).

Previews Begin: Tuesday, January 16, 2018

Opening Night: Tuesday, February 6, 2018

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).

Opening Night: Tuesday, November 14, 2017

Synopsis

Amber and Tom are freshmen at Princeton University, where their experiences so far have only two things in common: drunken parties and a desire to fit in. But when they meet, their common experience becomes anything but, and their moral mettle is put to the test. Lileana Blain-Cruz directs Anna Ziegler’s deeply felt and relevant play about intimacy and responsibility, power and provocation, privilege, and protocol.

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.
