DARING ARTISTS. BOLD CHOICES. ADVENTUROUS AUDIENCES.

I am thrilled to invite you to Yale Repertory Theatre’s 2014–15 season: two modern masterpieces and three brand new plays commissioned by Yale Rep offering a breathtaking diversity of emotions, experiences, and perspectives that reflect and celebrate our shared humanity.

The season opens with a new production, which I will direct, of Arcadia, the ravishingly romantic time-traveling masterpiece by Tom Stoppard, one of the most accomplished writers of the 20th and 21st centuries.

OBIE Award winning resident director Liz Diamond, whose Yale Rep credits include her acclaimed production of The Winter’s Tale, returns with Bertolt Brecht’s theatrical, lyrical, and bitingly satiric The Caucasian Chalk Circle.

As we celebrate the continued success of recent Yale Rep-commissioned plays such as Amy Herzog’s Belleville, David Adjmi’s Marie Antoinette, and Will Eno’s The Realistic Joneses, which just opened on Broadway, our 2014–15 season features the world premieres of extraordinary new plays by three singular voices in the American theatre.

Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, whose provocative and explosively funny plays include the recent critically acclaimed Off-Broadway production of Appropriate, makes his Yale Rep debut with War.

Pulitzer Prize finalist Danai Gurira—author of Eclipsed and In the Continuum, co-written with Nikkole Salter—returns with her intergenerational comedy-drama, Familiar.

Sheila Callaghan, profiled by Marie Claire as one of “18 Women Who Are Changing the World,” makes her own Yale Rep debut with the romantic comedy, Elevada, a 2014 finalist for the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize.

In addition to these five magnificent plays, Yale Rep will also present three unique opportunities to experience remarkable performances from around the world as part of our annual No Boundaries series. These limited engagements will be announced later this year.

Please join us!

Sincerely,

James Bundy
Artistic Director
