Launching the 2015-16 season will be Yockey's Blackberry Winter, backed by NNPN's flagship initiative, the rolling world premiere program, where a group of theatres choose to mount the same new play within a 12-month period, allowing the playwright to develop the work with various creative teams. Yockey's new play, beginning performances Sept. 16, follows a woman's witnessing her mother's gradual slide into dementia. The company will also present the world premieres of Streetlight Woodpecker by Shawn Fisher; Climbing with Tigers adapted for the stage by Troy Deutsch based on the book by Nathan Gold and Dallas Graham, and the annual summer cabaret, Saturday's Voyeur by Allen Nevins and Nancy Borgenicht.
Also featured in the season will be Nina Raine's Tribes, the 2012 Drama Desk winner for Outstanding Play; Stupid Fucking Bird, Aaron Posner's comedic adaptation of Chekhov's The Seagull as well as the children's play Art Dog, adapted for the stage by John Olive and composed by Susan Ennis, based on the book by Thatcher Hurd.
