News   New Two Hander after all the terrible things I do Will Open Milwaukee Rep's Studio Season Milwaukee Repertory Theater’s Stiemke Studio Season will open with the world premiere of after all the terrible things I do – a new drama from A. Rey Pamatmat, directed by May Adrales – Oct. 1.

The production will run through Nov. 9 with an official opening Oct. 3.

Here's how the play is billed: "This poignant new American drama finds Daniel, a young, gay, aspiring author, returning to his Midwestern hometown to regain his sense of self. He takes a job at a local bookstore owned by Linda, an émigré from the Philippines. The writer and the owner are drawn together by their own prejudices and questions. Soon their innocent conversation fills with tension and rage, forcing them to confront their common history, break a cycle of violence and face the reality that, sometimes, there are no second chances."

The design team includes Daniel Zimmerman (scenic design), Mary Folino (costume design), Keith Parham (lighting design) and Andre J. Pleuss (sound design).
