“I wanted my first full season with Philadelphia Theatre Company to focus on complex narratives and female characters who are reconciling their dreams with their realities. Each play illuminates the emotional lives of everyday women who could live across the street, ride the subway next to us, or brush by us on the sidewalk. I hope these stories trigger in our audience an empathy for people we might not think about on a day to day basis, but who move about in the world right next to us. It’s our job, as theatre makers, to elicit empathy – to portray stories in a manner that makes audiences step into the shoes of the people they see on stage. And just maybe, that translates to the real world.”

Paige Price, Producing Artistic Director

SWEAT

October 12 – November 4, 2018

Reading, Pennsylvania. A valley town of fiercely proud families who worked for generations in the plants and factories of a thriving county seat. Unions rule, well-paying jobs are coveted and politics are personal. As the ground beneath the feet of the workforce shifts, the men and women of Reading are powerless while their livelihood, legacy and relationships become dismantled as rapidly as the machines on which they worked. Based on Lynn Nottage’s extensive research in Reading, Sweat shares the fear, tragedy and hopefulness of a community being forced to accept inevitable change.

THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY

February 8 – March 3, 2019

Francesca Johnson, a beautiful Italian woman who married an American soldier to flee war-ravaged Italy, looks forward to a rare four days alone on her Iowa farm when her family heads to the 1965 State Fair. When ruggedly handsome National Geographic photographer Robert Kincaid pulls into her driveway seeking directions, what happens in those four days may very well alter the course of Francesca’s life.

HOW TO CATCH CREATION

March 22 – April 14, 2019

Christina Anderson’s stunning and complex examination of the universal act of creation—creation of life, of family, of art—spans space and time to inspire a new generation of makers and lovers. In the mid-1960s, a black, queer, feminist writer’s life is changed when her girlfriend tells her some unexpected news. 50 years later, the reverberations of that moment still echo in the lives of four individuals in the rapidly changing city of San Francisco.
