The Yale Repertory Theatre, currently enjoying sell-out success with artistic director James Bundy’s production of Hamlet (starring Paul Giamatti) has locked in its 2013-14 season:
September 20 through October 12: Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire, directed by Mark Rucker.
October 25 through November 16: Owners by Caryl Churchill, directed by Evan Yionoulis.
November 30 through December 21: Dario Fo’s political comedy classic Accidental Death of an Anarchist, in a new version directed by Christopher Bayes and starring Steven Epp.
January 31 through February 22: The Fairytale Lives of Russian Girls by recent Yale School of Drama grad Meg Miroshnik.
March 14 through April 5: These Paper Bullets, a new adapation of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing by Yale School of Drama alum and celebrated TV writer/producer Rolin Jones, with songs by Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day and direction by Jackson Gay.
April 18 through May 10: The world premiere of a new play by yet another YSD playwriting program alum Marcus Gardley, The House That Will Not Stand.
Four of the six shows will be performed in the Yale Repertory Theatre space at the corner of Chapel and York streets, while Streetcar and Paper Bullets will be staged at the larger, proscenium-style Yale University Theatre at 222 York Street.
