News   All The Way, The Nether and Tom Stoppard Part of Alley's Inaugural Season in New Theatre
 
Houston's Alley Theatre has announced the slate for its 2015-16 season, the first in its renovated space. The new season will include the Tony-winning play All the Way, Jennifer Haley's chilling whodunit The Nether and Tom Stoppard's Travesties. 

"The New Alley Season in the superb renovation of the Theatre space begins a new era for the Alley Company," said Gregory Boyd in a press statement. "The roster of plays reflects the most vivid theatrical story-telling anywhere."

The season will kick off with Richard Bean's One Man, Two Guvnors, a laugh-out-loud farcical show filled with love triangles, song and physical comedy, set in swinging sixties London. Performances will begin Oct. 2 and run through Nov. 1.

The fall will also see the staging of Sharr White's The Other Place, a haunting drama about a neurologist whose research into Alzheimer's takes a disorienting turn and plunges her into a world where the boundaries are blurring between fact and fiction, past and present. Performances will run Oct. 23-Nov. 15.

The near year will begin with the Tony-winning All The Way by Robert Schenkkan. The play about former President of the United States Lyndon B. Johnson features some of history's most dynamic figures such as J. Edgar Hoover and Martin Luther King, Jr. Performances are set to begin Jan. 29, 2016, and run through Feb. 21.

In March, Alley will present Tom Stoppard's Travesties. Set in Zurich in 1917, the witty and funny tour-de-force interweaves history, art, sex and revolution. In spring 2016, Jennifer Haley's The Nether, recently seen Off-Broadway, will have its Houston staging. The edge-of-your-seat, sci-fi drama examines the fine line between reality and cyber fantasy and the place for morality within these worlds. Performances will begin May 13 and run through June 12.

The season will conclude with Born Yesterday by Garson Kanin, the story of a hot-tempered tycoon and an ambitious blonde with the power of female persuasion. Performances are set to begin June 3 and continue through July 3.

Two more plays will be announced at a later date. For more information visit alleytheatre.org.
