The Guardian

A bullied schoolboy. A mysterious new neighbor. An unlikely bond formed between two young people… one of which has been young for a very long time. Jack Thorne’s Let the Right One In, based on the novel of the same name by John Ajvide Lindqvist, is a supernatural coming-of-age love story that touches the heart and makes it race, too.

WHO’S HOLIDAY

DECEMBER 7 – DECEMBER 30

BY MATTHEW LOMBARDO
DIRECTED BY GENE FOUCHÉ

Pay-What-You-Will Preview December 6

“The show belongs to the evergreen subgenre of holiday offerings that proffer to dirty up Christmas while ultimately reveling in its spirit.”
NY Times

You all may remember Cindy Lou Who from when she was a child, but now she’s had a life that’s really quite wild! She’s living in a trailer now, and she’s had quite a time. Now, she’s here to tell you all about it – all while staying in rhyme! From the playwright Matthew Lombardo, Who’s Holiday is a new kind of adult Christmas tale – one that’s full of laughs, rap, and not the least bit stale.

RADIUM GIRLS

FEBRUARY 15 – MARCH 10

BY D.W GREGORY
DIRECTED BY GERARD STROPNICKY

Pay-What-You-Will Preview February 14

“Radium Girls may speak to our collective capacity for denial. But it also celebrates our individual courage.”
The Daily Record

In 1926, radium was a miracle cure, Madame Curie an international celebrity, and luminous watches the latest rage—until the girls who painted them began to fall ill with a mysterious disease. Inspired by a true story, Radium Girls traces the efforts of Grace Fryer, a dial painter, as she fights for her day in court. But as the case goes on, Grace finds herself battling not just with the U.S. Radium Corporation, but with her own family and friends, who fear that her campaign for justice will backfire.

CURSE OF THE STARVING CLASS

APRIL 5 – APRIL 28

BY SAM SHEPARD
DIRECTED BY PETER WAY

Pay-What-You-Will Preview April 4

“Shepard has crafted a play of eloquent intensity, whirlwind farce and resonantly poignant insight.”
Time Magazine

A family’s survival in a harsh and changing world is put to the test in Sam Shepard’s Curse of the Starving Class. The setting is a farmhouse in the American West, inhabited by the Tate family, who has enough to eat but not enough to satisfy the other hungers that bedevil them. In the end the characters become a metaphor for the underside of American life—benighted innocents pursuing a dream that remains beyond their reach.

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE

MAY 24 – JUNE 16

BY KATE HAMILL
DIRECTED BY SUZANNE BEAL

Pay-What-You-Will Preview May 23

“Hamill’s… screwball PRIDE AND PREJUDICE… hasn’t met a rib it can’t tickle.”
NY Times

The outspoken Elizabeth Bennet faces mounting pressure from her status-conscious mother to secure a suitable marriage. But is marriage suitable for a woman of Elizabeth’s intelligence and independence? Especially when the irritating, aloof, self-involved…tall, vaguely handsome, and impossibly aristocratic Mr. Darcy keeps popping up at every turn? Jane Austen’s romantic classic Pride and Prejudice is given a hilarious twist in this new adaptation from Kate Hamill.
