We are overjoyed to share with you our 2021-2022 public season, a season that will happen live and in-person in the beautiful Floyd and Delores Jones Playhouse at UW.

The University of Washington has announced a full return to in-person teaching and learning for fall quarter. We are excited to welcome students back to our classrooms, studios, and production laboratories, and we are thrilled to be able to welcome you, our audiences, back to our theatres.

This past year has been one of deep reflection. The world has changed and so has our school. We’re not coming back the same as when we left. We are taking deliberate steps to model for our students what an equitable, sustainable, and humane post-COVID theatre industry can look like, and part of that is ensuring that we are programming our stages in a way that supports the health and well-being of every member of our learning community, including you, our patrons and supporters.

Because our stages are laboratories where our students practice the skills they are learning in our classrooms, our seasons will remain eclectic, embracing a broad range of styles, genres, periods, and forms.

In this season, you’ll get to enjoy:

  • Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest, a comedy which itself draws from—and skewers—myriad theatrical styles
  • Anna Zeigler’s Photograph 51, a rich, complex biographical drama about physicist Rosalind Franklin
  • Father Comes Home from the Wars, Pulitzer Prize-winner Suzan-Lori Parks’ “blazingly original” (The Washington Post) American epic
  • Christopher Chen’s fascinating and provocative fantasia Passage, inspired by E.M. Forster’s A Passage to India

We know that UW Drama audiences are omnivorous theatre appreciators who want to go on a journey with our student artists. We think you are going to love this year’s expedition.
