Simon Stephens’ Heisenberg, part of Manhattan Theatre Club’s Broadway season in 2016, will kick off the Repertory of St. Louis’ studio season this fall. The drama by The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time playwright (the Tony-winning Curious Incident kicks off the company’s mainstage programming) will open at the Emerson Studio Theatre October 25 and run through November 12, directed by artistic director Steven Woolf.
The studio season will then present Faceless by Selina Fillinger January 17–February 4, 2018. The drama focuses on the trial of a white American who was arrested just prior to joining ISIS, prosecuted by an American Muslim lawyer. BJ Jones, who directed the premiere production in Skokie, Illinois, will direct.
The third and final work is Caught, running March 7–25. Christopher Chen won a 2017 OBIE for the play that examines the blurred line between fact and fiction.
Casting will be announced at a later time.
The three plays in this smaller studio space complement the six shows on the mainstage roster: Curious Incident, Hamlet, the holiday show Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley, The Marvelous Wonderettes, the 2016 Tony-winning Best Play The Humans, and Born Yesterday.
