The season of the Obie-winning Tribeca company will begin with Peninsula, a work described as "Casablanca meets Japanese Butoh theatre." Writer Madelyn Kent will also direct the piece, which is set in a fictional land and employs heightened language (a hallmark of many Soho Rep produced plays). Performances begin Jan. 12. On March 16, the Austin-based Physical Plant Theater will arrive with Not Clown. The play takes place in a world where circuses are banned. Nonetheless a renegade troupe decides to play out the story of a girl who longs to be a clown. The show will make the New York debut of the company. The run will last two weeks.
Recent Soho Rep productions include Everything Will Be Different by Mark Schultz; The Flying Machine's Frankenstein; and Melissa James Gibson's Suitcase.
