WELCOME TO OUR 45TH ANNIVERSARY SEASON!
The 2019/20 Season builds upon our continued commitment to new plays, The Kilroys, unique Young Professional programming, Round 3 of Play Brawl!, and the return of our exclusive See And Be Scene sneak preview of future seasons, which we held on December 2nd.
Alongside our artistic offerings, PTC’s 45th Anniversary Season features a newly designed website, new green streetscaping in front of the theatre, and a curated wine list! Your upgrade starts here and now.
A Note From Paige:
In curating our second season of Philadelphia Theatre Company 2.0, we identified some new goals. Paramount is a continued focus on top rate theatre productions, of course, but we also want to penetrate the armor we use to get through our daily lives. In short, we want what we do to make you feel. We want you to feel..better. So we’ll strive to choose plays that not only open your eyes and your mind, but will also open your heart, even if it hurts just a little.
This season, we feature families and communities that pull together following events that challenge their belief systems…stories that give us hope and the chance to imagine what our own paths to happiness might look like.
Our commitment to gender parity and our focus on women – their stories, their words and their work – led to our [email protected] initiative. The Kilroys List is an industry survey of excellent un- and underproduced new plays by woman, trans, and non-binary playwrights and is represented by two of our three plays this year.
It is our hope that by naming this commitment, audiences will connect with and value new work and new voices and I’m excited that PTC will bring plays and artists to Philadelphia that might not otherwise be seen. We’re already planning the 2020-21 season and have some big plans, so watch this space!
An evolving PTC means we will continue to look for ways to bring fresh ideas, surprising artists and exciting collaborations to you.
We hope you will join us!
