By NICK DEAR    Adapted from the novel by MARY SHELLEY     Directed by JOEL FERRELL
Feb 2–March 4, 2018   Kalita Humphreys Theater

When Dr. Frankenstein’s experiment goes horribly awry, he resolves to destroy the terrifying creature he has unleashed upon the world. But can he kill his own creation without becoming a monster himself? Mary Shelley’s 200-year-old horror story, widely regarded as the original science fiction novel, continues to challenge the modern imagination. And after its sell-out run at London's National Theatre, Nick Dear’s electrifying new adaptation, full of shocking twists and turns, is sure to keep audiences on the edge of their seats as it brings Frankenstein (and his monster) to life.

 


 

By ROBERT SCHENKKAN    Directed by KEVIN MORIARTY
March 9–April 1, 2018   Wyly Theatre

Following the success of DTC’s 2016 production of All the WayThe Great Society continues the story of Lyndon B. Johnson’s turbulent presidency in the second part of Robert Schenkkan’s epic theatrical event. While the president fights a “war on poverty” at home, his war in Viet Nam begins to spiral out of control. Besieged by political enemies, Johnson desperately fights to pass civil rights legislation and some of the most important social programs in American history, even as the country turns against him and descends into chaos. Filled with a cast of legendary characters—from Martin Luther King, Jr. to Bobby Kennedy and Richard Nixon—The Great Society is an exhilarating examination of power, morality and change.

 


 

By AARON LOEB   Directed by KEVIN MORIARTY
April 20-May 13, 2018   Kalita Humphreys Theater

On the eve of the state’s secession in 1861, Governor Sam Houston is torn between loyalty to Texas and loyalty to the United States. As he weighs the terrible choice he must make, certain of the devastating cost of either path, Houston tells Jeff Hamilton (his office clerk and slave) of a time when he, and the Union itself, stood trial. This searing, world-premiere drama presents the true story of some of America’s most famous leaders—Andrew Jackson, Francis Scott Key, and John Quincy Adams, among others—and one man’s struggle with what it means to be brave in the land of the free.

THE PLAY YOU WILL SEE IS SEALED INSIDE AN ENVELOPE. The actor who will perform this play has never seen it. In fact, there is a new actor every performance, and they’ve only been told what is absolutely necessary:

“Do not Google this play. Prepare to impersonate a XXX.
Once you start, you must finish... NO MATTER WHAT.”

White Rabbit Red Rabbit has been called a play. But it’s a lively, global sensation that no one is allowed to talk about. Its award-winning playwright is Iranian. His words have escaped censorship and are awaiting you, the audience. Slyly humorous and audaciously pointed, this ‘theater entertainment meets social experiment’ is unlike anything, and will make you question everything. Have fun!
