Journey's End Oct 18 - Nov 10, 2019  
Gremlin Theatre Journey's End
 
Few plays have ever captured the fears, hopes and dread of the First World War (or any war) like R. C. Sherriff's celebrated Journey's End. Set in the front-line trenches near Sant Quentin in 1918, towards the end of the First World War, Journey's End gives a powerful (and beautiful) glimpse into the harrowing experiences of a British Army infantry company, whose story plays out in the officers' dugout over four days in March, 1918. With a German offensive imminently approaching, each man is trapped, the days ticking by, the tension rising and the attack drawing ever closer. Written in 1925, R.C. Sherriff's groundbreaking play remains one of the most powerful and successful pieces of modern drama and one of the most acclaimed examples of literature that deals with the tragedy and horror of conflict. Bain Boehlke returns to the Twin Cities to direct this powerful multi award-winning World War I masterpiece - the greatest of all English war plays.

The Band's Visit Dec 10 - Dec 15, 2019  
Orpheum Theatre The Band's Visit
 
The Band's Visit is about a meeting of two groups of strangers, brought together by a simple mishap. Instead of ending up in the bustling city of Petah Tikva in Israel, an Egyptian police band accidentally end up in the small, isolated town of the similarly-pronounced Bet Hatikva and are taken in by the locals for one night. Although the setting is the catalyst for David Yazbek's beautiful, Middle Eastern-infused score, you could pick this story up and place it in any isolated town or village anywhere in the world. It is this universal aspect to the story that audiences are connecting to. A small, "unimportant" story is speaking volumes about humanity and how we can form bonds with those we usually wouldn't encounter in our regular lives. How do we overcome our loneliness? How do we re-connect with our estranged loved ones?
