Phaedra Backwards

The mythic and the modern collide in a lyrical and fierce new adaptation of the classic Phaedra myth. In a triumphant return to McCarter, one of Ireland’s premier contemporary playwrights, Marina Carr (The Mai, Portia Coughlin), pens a seductive, poetic, and brave work that explores the inexorable pull of fate, the labyrinth of legacy, and the danger of desire. This haunting and passionate world premiere is rich in imagery, exhilarating, and eternal.

The Convert

January 13 2012-February 12 2012

It’s 1895 in the region that would become Zimbabwe. Jekesai, a young village girl, escapes a forced marriage by becoming the newest convert of a well-meaning black catechist for the Catholic Church. When a civil uprising against colonial white rule disrupts their lessons, the girl and her teacher must find their place in a new world order that threatens their heritage, history, and faith. Prodigiously talented playwright Danai Gurira (Eclipsed and In the Continuum) has written an unflinching, startling, and compelling new play, filled with humor and compassion.

March 13 2012- April 1 2012

Zurich, 1917 - Take one part Wilde, a touch of Lenin, a dash of Dada, a pinch of Joyce and you’ve got Tom Stoppard’s absurdly hilarious Travesties. Prepare to be delighted as Stoppard (Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, Shakespeare in Love) spins you into a dazzling medley of literature, philosophy, politics, and history. The wildest revolutionary minds of the 20th century come alive in this romantic and achingly funny modern masterpiece.

Are You There, McPhee?

May 4 2012- June 3 2012

A Nantucket house with a mysterious past. A pair of abandoned children. An 11 pound lobster.  Master playwright John Guare (House of Blue Leaves, Six Degrees of Separation) takes us on an epic and suspenseful ride in his newest play, a McCarter Theatre commission. Edmund Gowery is trapped and knows the only way to escape is to change his life—he just doesn’t know how. Guare spins a darkly comic and spine-tingling tale in what promises to be an unforgettable theatrical experience.
