This year's Pulitzer winner for his Anna in the Tropics shares with Seattle one of his latest Beauty of the Father, May 27. Cuban-born Nilo Cruz sets his work in Spain where an artist reunites with his daughter after a long separation with her mother. Sharon Ott directs.
Katie Forgette's The O'Connor Girls brings Christmas a little early as it plays May 28. The O'Connor sisters head back to their Minnesota home to attend their father's funeral and sort through his belongings when a family secret is revealed. Christine Sumption directs.
Don Carlos by Friedrich Schiller will play May 31. Michael Feingold provides the new translation of the work which follows a Spanish ruler in his battle for freedom and power. Carey Perloff directs. Chay Yew's Malaya brings South East Asia to Seattle, June 1. The new work, inspired by Federico Garcia Lorca's "Blood Wedding," focuses on the lives of three people in the 1920s who replay their destiny anew in the present. Rosa Joshi directs.
