For our 7th Season we bring you six stories that challenge our very sense of self. What happens when a person, place or event whip your identity into the opposite direction? Through seminal works by Pulitzer Prize winners, prolific novelists, political activists, and masters of the theatrical canon, we are initiating a deep conversation about what it means to be human, and how these works reflect the trials and tribulations we experience in today's society.

Our 7th Season includes Main Stage productions of: GETTING OUT by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Marsha Norman; RHINOCEROS by French playwright, Eugene Ionesco (known as one of the leading architects of absurdist theater); and MACBETH by William Shakespeare, in honor of the 400th Anniversary of his death.

Our TSP Unplugged Series gives patrons an exciting and exclusive look behind the scenes at The Seeing Place, and includes an opportunity to participate with our artists in exploring four important texts of our time: 1984, an adaptation of the classic novel by George Orwell; NECESSARY TARGETS by Tony Award winner Eve Ensler; and AFTER THE REVOLUTION by Obie and Whiting Award winner Amy Herzog.

Even though these 6 plays span hundreds of years and countless generations of storytelling, the subjects brooched and lessons learned are achingly relevant today. We've chosen these plays to open up a dialogue with our audience about the world around us. How can we make an impact? How can we build on what we've learned from the people who've come before us?

We sure hope you'll join us for our landmark 7th Season and help us create a new conversation to connect with your fellow man. Perhaps, as Gandhi said, we together can be the change we wish to see in the world.

AFTER THE REVOLUTION
by Amy Herzog

TSP Unplugged Reading Series - Fall 2016

MACBETH
by William Shakespeare

Directed by Brandon Walker

TSP Main Stage - December 8-22, 2016

On a barren heath, three sisters tell the great and bloodied Macbeth that he is fated to be King of Scotland. And so begins a terrifying series of events that lead to the murder of Kings, friends, mothers and their children. Macbeth and his Lady fall prey to a soul-corroding guilt as they desperately try and cling to the defiled crown.

2016 marks the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare's death.

     

     
     
     
   
     
 

1984
by George Orwell (Adapted by Matthew Dunster)

Directed by Brandon Walker

TSP Unplugged Reading Series - May 3, 2016 (7pm)

Presented on World Press Freedom Day

A man loses his identity while living under a repressive regime. In a story based on George Orwell's classic novel, Winston Smith is a government employee whose job involves the rewriting of history in a manner that casts his fictional country's leaders in a charitable light. His trysts with Julia provide his only measure of enjoyment, but lawmakers frown on the relationship -- and in this closely monitored society, there is no escape from Big Brother.

NECESSARY TARGETS
by Eve Ensler

Directed by Erin Cronican

TSP Unplugged Reading Series - June 20, 2016 (7pm)

Presented on World Refugee Day

Two American women travel to Bosnia to help women refugees confront their memories of war and emerge deeply changed as they confront their own fears in the face of violence, resiliency and war. Based on interviews with numerous women who survived the civil war in the former Yugoslavia, this is a timely reminder of how America struggles to define its relationship to the rest of the world.

GETTING OUT
by Marsha Norman

Directed by Erin Cronican

TSP Main Stage - July 16-August 7, 2016

A major Off-Broadway success, this eloquent, moving and exceptionally well-written first play by Pulitzer Prize winner Marsha Norman probes into the past and present of a young woman attempting to find her way in life after release from prison.

RHINOCEROS
by Eugene Ionesco

Directed by Brandon Walker

TSP Main Stage - July 16-August 7, 2016

In RHINOCEROS, Ionesco startles audiences with a world that invariably erupts in explosive laughter and nightmare anxiety. A commentary on the absurdity of the human condition made tolerable only by self-delusion, Rhinoceros shows us the struggle of the individual to maintain integrity and identity alone in a world where all others have succumbed to the “beauty” of brute force, natural energy, and mindlessness.
