Featuring Mitch Bultman, Mary MacDonald Kerr and James Ridge

It’s 1999; uncertainty and instability are in the air. Four years earlier, Bryan had abandoned his labor of love, a newspaper for truckers. Now he’s returned to small-town Idaho – with no word of where he’s been – and things have changed. His former lover is filled with rage, his new coworker is filled with incessant adoration, and his paper is filled with personal ads. From Samuel D. Hunter, award winning-author and recent recipient of the MacArthur Foundation “Genius” Grant, comes this compassionate, gently-hued drama about lonely lives desperately searching for a renewed faith in humanity.

A NEW PLAY FOR OUR TIMES

An ace fighter pilot finds herself grounded when an unexpected pregnancy puts her career on hold. When she returns to the pilot’s seat, she finds that she’s now part of the “chair force,” flying drones and dropping bombs on enemy combatants in Afghanistan from the comfort of an air conditioned trailer in Las Vegas. In this gripping, ripped-from-the-headlines new play, we find that hunting terrorists by day and being a mother by night may be this top gun’s toughest assignment yet.

CELEBRATE A LOCAL LEGEND

Few names trigger more memories and smiles in Milwaukee than Al McGuire, Marquette University’s legendary basketball coach. Many know him for leading the Warriors to the NCAA Championship and for his candid television personality, but few knew him like his broadcasting partner—Emmy Award-winner Dick Enberg. Just in time for March Madness, McGuire is a touching portrait of the uncommonly funny and profound man behind the legend.

A GREAT AMERICAN CLASSIC

Faded southern belle Amanda frets constantly over her two live-in adult children—the painfully shy Laura and her restless poet brother, Tom.

Director Mark Clements reunites with 10-time Joseph Jefferson Award-winner Hollis Resnik, who wowed Rep audiences as Judy Garland in End of the Rainbow, for a new production of this American classic that made Tennessee Williams a household name.

Time Stands Still
by Donald Margulies

Presented by In Tandem Theatre at Tenth Street Theatre

 

Sarah, a photojournalist, is injured in a war-torn country and returns home to recuperate.

His life-changing questions are deepened when their long-time editor and friend, Richard, introduces his fiancé, a decidedly younger woman who helps Richard see the world anew. Will Sarah acquiesce, lowering the camera in order to face the world or is this the end for her and James? Some adult language and situations, best suited for ages 16+.
