Off the wall comedy
Dead Man’s Cell Phone
By Sarah Ruhl
Directed by Brandon Weinbrenner
April 17 – May 10, 2020
An incessantly ringing cell phone in a quiet café. A stranger at the next table who has had enough. And a dead man. An off-the-wall play about the odyssey of a woman forced to confront her own assumptions about morality, redemption, and the need to connect in a technologically obsessed world.
BY CHISA HUTCHINSON
DIRECTED BY JAMES BLACK
MAY 8 – JUNE 7, 2020
Developed as part of the 2019 Alley All New Festival. A new father desperate for community, casually follows his buddy's advice and tries to join a white supremacist group...but the results of his ancestry test prove surprising. The line between "us" and "them" gets incredibly blurry.
Classic romantic favorite
Sense And Sensibility
By Kate Hamill
Based on the novel by Jane Austen
Directed by Adriana Baer
June 5 – July 5, 2020
A playful new adaptation that follows the fortunes (and misfortunes) of the Dashwood sisters. Set in gossipy late 18th-century England, the play is full of humor, emotional depth, and bold theatricality.
Rob Melrose, new Artistic Director of the Tony Award®-winning Alley Theatre, announces the Alley’s 2019-20 Season, which includes a world premiere play, three productions directed by Melrose, a co-production, an expanded student matinee program, and dates for the fifth Alley All New Festival.
