We’ll be staying close to the issue of Race for the next two weeks, while our production keeps running through March 17. But we’ll move onto the closely related issue of class divisions that separate and define us all the more in America. Last night students who’ve been writing about Mamet went to see David Lindsay-Abaire’s GOOD PEOPLE at Arena Stage. We can all see see why it’s one of the most popular and timely plays in the country. We can read their responses below. Congrats to Arena Stage on a widely hailed and wonderful production.
Theater J announces its 2014-2015 season of Epic Expressions, an ambitious line-up of socially relevant drama and cultural celebration. Featuring a broad canvass collection of big plays, big casts and big ideas, the season will offer six life-changing journeys intertwining the political, the personal, the poignant and the provocative.
With a blend of searing drama, acid hilarity and unshakeable passion, Theater J takes on feminist aspirations within a traditional religious community, interracial adoption, and the ethics of assisted suicide in the wake of political despair, alongside timeless questions of love, envy, and spiritual longing.
Performing in the Aaron and Cecile Goldman Theater
