New York Theatre Workshop has set dates for its two final productions of the 2017–2018 season: Light Shining in Buckinghamshire and The House That Will Not Stand.

Light Shining in Buckinghamshire, written by Caryl Churchill (Love and Information, A Number), will begin performances April 18, with an official opening set for May 7. The production continues through May 27. Rachel Chavkin (Natasha, Pierre and The Great Comet of 1812, Hadestown) directs.

The House That Will Not Stand, by Marcus Gardley (X: Or, Betty Shabazz v. The Nation) kicks off July 11 before opening July 30. The production is set to play through August 12. Lileana Blain-Cruz (Red Speedo, The Death of the Last Black Man in the Whole Entire World) will helm the New York premiere.

Casting and full creative teams for both productions will be announced at a later date.

The two titles will follow productions of Mary Jane by Amy Herzog, the Bengsons' folk-punk musical Hundred Days, and an upcoming world premiere production of Hammaad Chaudry's An Ordinary Muslim (beginning February 7).
