COMEDY OF ERRORS

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Simon Godwin
Sep 10 – Oct 6, 2024 | KLEIN THEATRE

Two sets of twins. Two rival cities. Infinite hilarity.  

Confusions collide in this hilariously illogical comedy. Lookalikes Alex Brightman (School of Rock on Broadway) and David Fynn (School of Rock on the West End) come together as Dromio and Dromio (respectively) to add a splash of rock ‘n’ roll to Shakespeare’s most deliriously funny play. Artistic Director Simon Godwin (Much Ado about Nothing, Macbeth) directs this raucous reflection of families lost and found, topsy turvy love and the utterly human desire to belong.

BABBITT

By Joe DiPietro
Adapted from the novel by Sinclair Lewis
Directed by Christopher Ashley
Produced in association with La Jolla Playhouse
Oct 1 – Oct 27, 2024 |
HARMAN HALL

Two-time Tony-winner Matthew Broderick (The Producers, Plaza Suite) makes his STC debut in this breathtaking political satire.  

Meet George F. Babbitt: real estate broker, father of two, a fine, upstanding, middle-class American everyman. Seeking meaning to his humdrum existence, Babbitt plunges headlong into the most spectacular rebellion of his life (using the guest towel) and unwittingly turns the world around him upside down. Prepare to be amazed by this exhilarating adaptation of Sinclair Lewis’s satirical masterpiece.

LEOPOLDSTADT

By Tom Stoppard
Directed by Carey Perloff
Produced in association with The Huntington
Nov 30 – Dec 29, 2024 | HARMAN HALL

Five-time Tony-winner Tom Stoppard (Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead), offers his most personal story in Leopoldstadt.  

A Jewish family grows and struggles over the course of nearly 60 years, beginning with their initial assimilation into Viennese culture, negotiating the outbreak of two World Wars through to the aftermath of the Holocaust. Traversing decades of joy and strife, the family strives to maintain their delicate bonds of shared history. Directed by celebrated playwright/director Carey Perloff, in a new arrangement she crafted with Stoppard, the Tony and Olivier Award-winning play Leopoldstadt offers “an intensely personal family drama” (Variety) for the holiday season.

KUNENE AND THE KING

By John Kani
Directed by Ruben Santiago-Hudson
Produced in association with Octopus Theatricals
Feb 16 – March 16, 2025 | KLEIN THEATRE

South African actor, activist, and playwright John Kani (Black Panther, Sizwe Banzi Is Dead/The Island) stars in his story of Shakespeare’s unifying force.  

It’s a quarter century since the first post-apartheid democratic elections, and Jack Morris has just been given a career-defining role as King Lear—and a life-changing diagnosis. As the celebrated classical actor faces his own mortality, he clashes and connects with his at-home caregiver, Lunga Kunene (Kani), in this “poignant two-hander” (The Guardian).

UNCLE VANYA

By Anton Chekhov
Adapted by Conor McPherson
Directed by Simon Godwin
Produced in association with Berkeley Repertory Theatre
March 30 – April 20, 2025 | HARMAN HALL

One of the UK’s most beloved actors makes his D.C. debut in STC’s first ever production of a play by Anton Chekhov.  

When the distinguished elderly owner of a rural estate returns with a new, young wife, Yelena, chaos erupts. Tensions run high, marriages reach their limits, confessions—and vodka—flow freely, and weapons are drawn. Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey, Paddington) plays Uncle Vanya, in this heartbreaking comedy about the eternal battle between futility and change.  

*This title will be presented in a 3/4 thrust.

FRANKENSTEIN

By Mary Shelley
Adapted and directed by Emily Burns

May 27 – June 22, 2025 | KLEIN THEATRE

Buckle in for an electrifying take on a classic tale.  

Emily Burns (adaptor of STC’s Macbeth and Much Ado About Nothing), reimagines Mary Shelley‘s romantic gothic science fiction masterpiece as a chilling exploration of what it means to create a new life. Visceral and provocative, this production reveals the inner lives of Elizabeth and Victor Frankenstein in bold new ways. Riding the edge of cinematic thriller and intense drama, Frankenstein redefines the legend we know, the name we fear, and the monstrous act at the heart of the story.

ALL THE DEVILS ARE HERE: HOW SHAKESPEARE INVENTED THE VILLAIN

Created and performed by Patrick Page
Directed by Simon Godwin

Dec 6 – Dec 29, 2024 | KLEIN THEATRE

A beguiling bonanza of Shakespearean devilry.  

Dubbed “The villain of Broadway” by Playbill, Tony Award-nominee and Grammy Award-winner Patrick Page (King Lear, Hadestown) has never shied away from exploring his dark side. Now, with this tour de force show, “one of America’s greatest classical actors” (The Wall Street Journal) turns to the twisted motivations and hidden humanity at the heart of Shakespeare’s greatest villains. Moving swiftly through the canon, Page illuminates Shakespeare’s evolving conception of evil by delving into more than a dozen of his most wicked creations, offering a thrilling masterclass on the most terrifying subject of them all: human nature. Previously seen on-screen, now is the chance for audiences in D.C. to experience an enhanced version for the stage.  

*At this time, this title is only available with a purchase of a full season subscription.
