Shopping and F***ing
By Mark Ravenhill
Coming March 2020
Directed by Clare Thompson
The ground-breaking debut from one of the most important playwrights of the last decade, now in an acting edition. "Shopping and F***ing is a darkly humorous play for today's twenty-somethings ...a real coup de theatre" Nicholas de Jongh, Evening Standard "Plunges you into the world of disposability, disconnection and dysfunction, where relationships to be trusted have to be reduced to transactions ...strong stuff" Paul Taylor, Independent "Ravenhill has more to say, and says it more refreshingly and wittily, than any other playwright of his generation" - Time Out
Rain and Zoe Save the World
By Crystal Skillman
Coming June 2020
Directed by Taylor Moschetti
"A wild cross-country road trip that's got a huge heart and a refreshing sense of imagination and optimism." -John M. Baker "A radically charged coming-of-age story as whimsical and fun as it is moving and deep." -- Lori Wolter Hudson. Two Seattle teenagers embark on an impulsive motorcycle journey to join a group of oil protesters on the east coast. But as they follow a major pipeline across the country, what began as two young activists' longing to belong to something greater than themselves gives way to Rain and Zoe discovering that the true danger in this world might just be growing up.
This is not a new play. This is not a new story. For some in the theatre community, doing a "Labute show" triggers eye rolls and knowing smirks due to how often they are staged, or the sometimes clumsy and out-of-touch approaches to progressive ideas they contain.
But lately it has become clear that we are still a clumsy and out-of-touch society. And so we have this play. Unremarkable people stuck in an unremarkable town, looking for some value in their lives.
