About the Shows

 

The Revolutionists
by Lee Blessing
Directed by Marybeth Gorman Craig

Run Dates: February 6-17, 2019
Center for Performance Experiment

History becomes “herstory” as a disparate band of courageous women find themselves working together in a shared fight for liberté, égalité, and sororité during the French Revolution.  This funny, fresh and wholly irreverent comedy by award-winning playwright Lauren Gunderson brings the past into sharply relevant focus in a story that boldly explores how art and activism can intersect to make history.

 

Waiting for Godot
by Samuel Beckett
Directed by Steven Pearson

Run Dates: February 7-17, 2019
Center for Performance Experiment

Beckett’s existential masterwork is at once hilarious and profoundly moving in its portrayal of two vagabonds, Vladimir and Estragon, who spend their days together questioning, theorizing, arguing, laughing, and consoling…all while eternally awaiting the arrival of the enigmatic figure Godot.

 

The Wolves
by Sarah DeLappe
Directed by Lindsay Rae Taylor

Run Dates: February 21 - March 2, 2019
Longstreet Theatre

A 2017 finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, Sarah DeLappe’s The Wolves charges fiercely onto the stage to reveal a brutally honest portrait of adolescent life on a high school girls’ soccer team.  You’re a fly-on-the-goal as you witness the nine talented teammates warm up throughout their season, maneuvering through increasingly challenging obstacles both on and off the field. 

 

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
by Simon Stephens, Based on the novel by Mark Haddon
Directed by Robert Richmond

Run Dates: April 5-13, 2019
Drayton Hall Theatre

A critically-acclaimed, multiple-Tony® winner, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time has been hailed as “a phenomenal combination of storytelling and spectacle” (The Times) and “a testament to the singular power of theatre” (Vogue).  In this stage adaptation of Mark Haddon’s best-selling novel, a math savant on the autism spectrum becomes consumed with finding the killer of his neighbor’s dog.  He soon finds that fingers are pointing at him as the suspect, setting him off on a daunting odyssey that turns his entire world upside down.

 

Wonder of the World
by David Lindsay-Abaire
Directed by Allie Anderson

Run Dates: April 17-20, 2019
Lab Theatre

This outrageous comedy by Pulitzer-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire (Rabbit Hole, Good People) is a trip you’ll never forget!  After Cass discovers a dirty secret about her husband, she runs away to Niagara Falls, hoping to find a life that’s passed her by.  Her soul-searching adventure quickly goes over the edge as she encounters a succession of ever more eccentric fellow travelers, including a suicidal alcoholic, a lonesome tour boat captain, and a pair of bungling, bickering private detectives. 

 


 

Theatre South Carolina embraces non-traditional casting and encourages the casting of ethnic minority actors, female actors, and physically-challenged actors where possible. Individual show directors, together with the artistic director and the acting faculty, make all casting decisions. While some parts may be cast before auditions, that is always the case with guest actors.
