Sweat

August 29 - October 7, 2018

Centre Theatre Group's groundbreaking 2018/19 season continues with the poignant Pulitzer Prize-winning drama Sweat, an unflinching portrayal of the very human lives behind the statistics of America's economic decline. Tough, yet empathetic, playwright Lynn Nottage weaves together her extensive research from interviews with the community of Reading, Pennsylvania and gut-punching emotional honesty, humour and stark tragedy for a thought provoking production that brings audiences face to face with their own sense humanity.

Following its world premiere at the San Jose Stage Company in 2016, Luis Valdez's searing drama Valley Of The Heart comes to Los Angeles as part of the Centre Theatre Group's Mark Taper Forum 2018/19 season. Hailed as the father of Chicano since his first ever work Zoot Suit was the first Chicano play on Broadway, as well as the La Bamba movie, Valdez presents a sweeping epic filled with the emotionally-charged history of Japanese and Mexican immigrants struggling in the face of the Great Depression and anti-immigrant politics post Pearl Harbour.

Following its world premiere in Chicago last year, Tracy Letts' dark tragicomedy Linda Vista comes to Los Angeles as part of the Centre Theatre Group's 2018/19 season. The Pulitzer and Tony-winning writer behind the Meryl Streep-led film August: Osage County presents a searing portrait of a midlife crisis as suffered by Wheeler, the charming, funny, self-deprecating 50 year old white male seeking a new start after the break down of his marriage.

Happy Days

May 15 - June 30, 2019

James Bundy's invigorated staging of Samuel Beckett's masterful tragicomedy Happy Days drew much critical acclaim during its 2017 Yale Repertory run for its startling and surreal portrayal of stasis masquerading as change, the emptiness of language and loneliness. Academy Award winning stage and screen star Dianne Wiest returns in the role of Winnie, a role often dubbed 'the Hamlet for women'.
