Welcome to Yale Repertory Theatre!

For nearly fifty years, Yale Rep has been a home for the most daring and innovative artists working in the American theatre and the country’s most adventurous audiences

It’s the home that director Mark Rucker returns to with a true passion project: a new exploration of Tennessee Williams’s masterwork, A Streetcar Named Desire, with his frequent collaborator René Augesen—his first, and only, choice to play its iconic tragic heroine, Blanche DuBois.

It’s where Resident Director Evan Yionoulis, back for her 13th production, will introduce audiences to Owners, an early work by one of our greatest living playwrights: Caryl Churchill. First produced in 1972 but rarely staged, Owners was inspired by the outrageous farces of Churchill’s contemporary Joe Orton and reveals the thematic seeds that have blossomed throughout her own incredible body of work.

It’s a playground on which director Christopher Bayes and actor Steven Epp—whose previous collaborations have left Yale Rep audiences laughing until their faces hurt—will turn their wildly irreverent sensibilities to Accidental Death of an Anarchist by Dario Fo, the Nobel Prize winning heir to the Italian commedia dell’arte tradition.

It’s the launching pad for then-unknown playwrights like David Adjmi, Christopher Durang, Suzan-Lori Parks, Sarah Ruhl, and August Wilson, to name just a few, who have introduced their work to New Haven audiences before going on to national acclaim. This season, you’ll meet Meg Miroshnik, a writer of tremendous promise making her own Yale Rep debut with The Fairytale Lives of Russian Girls.

It’s where Pulitzer Prize and Emmy Award nominated writer Rolin Jones jams with Billie Joe Armstrong (yes, the multiple Grammy Award winning Green Day singer/songwriter who’s sold more than 60 million albums) on These Paper Bullets!, a rocking and rolling new take on Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing.

It’s a place of magic where two poets of the theatre, Marcus Gardley and Federico García Lorca, speak to each other across centuries and across cultures through the shared language of drama in a brand new play, The House that will not Stand.

Yale Rep is your home tooa place for laughter and tears, for surprises, for contradictions, and for ambiguity. Our promise is that you will see and hear something truly out of the ordinary, and that you will feel differently on your way home than you did before the lights went down for the performance.

However each of us may feel, every production in the season is an invitation to conversations that will continue long after the curtain comes down: whether you are a longtime subscriber, or a first-time member of our audience, we can hardly wait to begin those conversations with you.

Welcome home!
