2018-2019 Season Announcement

Wednesday, June 27, 2018

Vineyard Theatre Artistic Directors Douglas Aibel and Sarah Stern announce the upcoming 2018-2019 Season. The New York premiere of Ngozi Anyanwu’s GOOD GRIEF, directed by Awoye Timpo, will open the season this fall. In winter 2019, The Vineyard and The New Group will co-produce the world premiere of Jeremy O. Harris’ "Daddy" directed by Danya Taymor, featuring Alan Cumming. The final production of the season in spring 2019 will be the New York premiere of DO YOU FEEL ANGER? by Mara Nelson-Greenberg, directed by Margot Bordelon. GOOD GRIEF and DO YOU FEEL ANGER? will be presented at Vineyard Theatre (108 East 15th Street) and the co-production of "Daddy" will be presented in The Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre at The Pershing Square Signature Center (480 West 42nd Street). Artistic Directors Douglas Aibel and Sarah Stern said, “We are thrilled to announce a season of extraordinary premiere plays by some of most exciting new voices in the theatre -- Ngozi Anyanwu, Jeremy O. Harris, and Mara Nelson-Greenberg -- all making their Vineyard mainstage debuts. Their plays wrestle with complex themes -- the process of grief, the mysteries of connection, the power of imagination, the erosion of empathy -- in compelling, funny and potent ways. Each evinces a fearless and original theatricality and collision of forms, pushing the boundaries of what theatre can be and do. We are so excited to collaborate with these remarkable young playwrights and directors -- Awoye Timpo, Danya Taymor and Margot Bordelon -- and to bring their work to our audiences."
