Merrimack Repertory Theatre (MRT) ANNOUNCES its 2023-2024 SEASON

Merrimack Repertory Theatre (MRT) ANNOUNCES its 2023-2024 SEASON

GASLIGHT

Based on the play by Patrick Hamilton
A new version for the stage by Steven Dietz
Directed by Courtney Sale
Produced in partnership with Cincinnati Shakespeare Company
October 18 - November 5

A psychological thriller adapted by Steven Dietz based on the 1939 play by Patrick Hamilton and the 1944 Ingrid Bergman film. Gaslight thrillingly delves into the horrors of psychological abuse, where the truth is fickle for characters and audience alike. With undertones of Sherlock Holmes and film noir, it’s a story replete with mystery, double-crosses, and at its core a statement on the injustice and impact of abuse.

 


A CHRISTMAS CAROL

By Charles Dickens
Written and directed by Courtney Sale
November 29 - December 24

Back by popular demand! Experience Charles Dickens’ timeless story of redemption with new songs, scenes, and surprises. With a nod to Dickens’ time in Lowell and featuring the extraordinary talent of local young artists, A Christmas Carol is the perfect way to capture the spirit of the season and make memories for the future.

 


DISHWASHER DREAMS

Written and performed by Alaudin Ullah
Directed by Chay Yew
February 28 - March 17, 2024

From Bangladesh to New York City, from graffiti crews to baseball games, courageous honesty to emotive humor, Dishwasher Dreams explores the complicated realities of dreams we make for ourselves. When Alaudin sets out to become a film actor in Los Angeles, his Bangladeshi family can’t understand. Driven by laugh out loud writing and accompanied by tablas percussion, Ullah’s edifying and dynamic tour-de-force explores the humor and complexity of the American Dream through a deeply personal story.

 


THE PORCH ON WINDY HILL

Written by Sherry Stregack Lutken, Lisa Helmi Johanson, Morgan Morse and David M. Lutken
Conceived and Directed by Sherry Stregack Lutken
April 3 - 21, 2024

A bi-racial Korean classical violinist, Mira, and her music history grad-student boyfriend, Beck, escape months of Covid-isolation to the mountains of North Carolina. Their journey takes a surprising turn when they meet Edgar, and Mira faces a flood of memory, pain, hope, and discovery that follows. A moving, modern American play about family- with enough music for a real ‘hoot ‘n’ holler’ as the cast- Lisa Helmi Johanson, Morgan Morse, and David Lutken perform a dozen traditional and bluegrass gems. The quintessentially American melodies running through The Porch on Windy Hill illuminate a young woman’s complex, contemporary tale of healing.

 


SPIRITUS/VIRGIL'S DANCE

Written and performed by Dael Orlandersmith
Directed by Neel Keller
May 8 - 26, 2024

In this exploration of the realities of death through the eyes of a watchful and troubled individual, we meet Virgil- a kid who used to hang out in cemeteries with friends. As an adult, Virgil wonders: what does it mean to live a fulfilled life? Spiritus/Virgil’s Dance is an extraordinary meditation on finding purpose in the midst of the ordinariness of daily life.
