Two River Theatre 2022/23 Season Announcement

Season subscriptions on sale now! Single tickets on sale August 2022.

Red Bank, NJ — Two River Theater is proud to announce an exciting, thought-provoking theatrical season, featuring world premiere work as well as plays by some of American theater’s most lauded talents. Each of these plays centers an artwork: painting, sculpture, poetry, or music and celebrates the transformative power of art to provoke and stimulate, to make us laugh and rejoice, to help us grieve and heal, but mostly to bring us together to affirm our common humanity.

WINE IN THE WILDERNESS

OCT 15 – NOV 6 / 2022

By Alice Childress
Directed by Brandon J. Dirden

As an uprising rocks his Harlem neighborhood on a hot summer night, artist Bill Jameson is more focused on finishing his latest work: three paintings representing three types of Black womanhood. More than his artistic vision is challenged by the arrival of an unexpected muse, who refuses to be bound by his shallow assumptions of all that Black womanhood can be. This reflection on how art truly reflects life is directed by Obie Award winner Brandon J. Dirden (Director of August Wilson’s Radio Golf and King Hedley II) and features Crystal Dickinson (A Raisin in the Sun, August Wilson’s Seven Guitars).

LIVING AND BREATHING

Jan 28 – Feb 26 / 2023
Rechnitz Theater

By Mando Alvarado
Directed by Rebecca Martinez

The impulsive purchase of some provocative art – a living Latino man who is paid to behave as a statue – shatters a multi-ethnic friend group by sparking questions of commodification, stereotypes, and complacency. While the validity of the artist’s vision might be up for debate, one thing is undeniable: the friendship between these three men is much more fragile than they had realized. Complex, darkly funny, and thought-provoking, this play by Mando Alvorado was read as a part of the 2019 Two River Theater Crossing Borders Festival.

ROMEO AND JULIET

Apr 8 – 30 / 2023
Rechnitz Theater

By William Shakespeare
In a modern verse translation by Hansol Jung

The classic tale of star-crossed love is infused with contemporary vitality by playwright Hansol Jung (Wolf Play, Wild Goose Dreams, Cardboard Piano). Seen in 2020 as part of Two River Theater’s Two River Rising online reading series, this new take on Shakespeare’s ode to young love was originally commissioned by the Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s Play On! project. It is produced as part of the NAATCO (National Asian American Theatre Company) National Partnership Project.

TWO SISTERS AND A PIANO

June 3 – 25 / 2023
Rechnitz Theater

By Nilo Cruz

Although trapped under house arrest, novelist Maria Celia and her sister Sofia can still hear the rumors of shifting global politics growing in 1990s Havana. As they await changes for Cuba as well as changes to their situation, it’s uncertain whether freedom will come through government regime change, Maria Celia’s far-off husband, or the charismatic military officer who has begun insinuating himself into the sisters’ lives. A passionate tale of revolution, art, and manipulation written by Pulitzer Prize winner Nilo Cruz (Anna in the Tropics).

RADIANT BABY UPDATE

Two River Theater has decided not to move forward with the planned production of Radiant Baby. It has been our great pleasure to participate in this work honoring artist and activist Keith Haring, and we extend our heartfelt thanks to the artists and creative team who joined us throughout the development process.
