2024-2025 Season

We are overjoyed to share with you our 2024/2025 public season. A season that will be live, dynamic, and in-person at three UW theatres: Floyd and Delores Jones Playhouse, The Meany Studio Theatre, and the Glenn Hughes Penthouse. 

More information on subscriptions and tickets coming this summer! 

Because our stages are laboratories where our students practice the skills they are learning in the classroom, our season will showcase works in progress, works of varying styles and genres, and works that will showcase the culmination of the work done at UW. 

In this season, you will get to enjoy: 

The Caucasian Chalk Circle
Written by Bertolt Brecht. Translated by Alistair Beaton
Directed by Nick O'Leary, 3rd year MFA candidate
November 2024
A group of modern-day actors come together with real questions about justice, what is fair, and how to do right when it seems impossible. They present Brecht’s version of an ancient Chinese story with an original pop rock score to breathe new life into these questions and find their way to answers.

The Winter's Tale
Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Kate Drummond, 3rd year MFA candidate
February 2025
An ensemble of performers tells a folk tale of the greatest trial their people ever faced and how love won out against all odds. A new adaptation of Shakepeare’s classic tale with original music and a highly physical movement language.

Producing Artists Laboratory - Winter
Directed by Nick O'Leary, 3rd year MFA candidate
March 2025
Audience members may see more vigorous artistic risk-taking in these Lab productions. From their first year to graduation, the Lab is a space for our student-artists to practice their craft.

Producing Artists Laboratory - Spring
Director TBD
April 2025
The Producing Artist Laboratory is a unique part of the School of Drama’s production structure. The Spring Lab in 2025 will feature first-year MFA directors and designers working alongside second-year MFA actors for the first time.

Thrive, Or What You Will
Written by L M Feldman
Directed by Adrienne Mackey
May 2025
An epic tale about Jeanne Baret, a little-known 18th century figure who sets out on an 11-year voyage as a botanist’s assistant (presenting male) and becomes the first woman to circumnavigate the globe. Funny, thoughtful, and inventive, it explores questions of gender, authority, accountability, and the uncredited contributions of women throughout history.
