The Red Letter Plays: In the Blood

August 29-October 8, 2017

Playing in rep with her play "F*cking A" for the very first time, Susan Lori Parks' "In The Blood" again explores the themes of sex, vegeance and society, in her interpretation of Nathaniel Hawthorne's explosive The Scarlet Letter. In The Blood takes a different view of the anti-heroine known as Hester; instead of condemned abortionist, this version of Hester is a single mother of five children, all with different fathers. She is also branded with the letter A - this time for adultress.

Good for Otto

Opens March 6, 2018

Ed Harris and Amy Madigan lead a large ensemble cast of 14, in this disturbing drama by Tony-winning playwright David Rabe (1972's Sticks and Stones). Inspired by a real clinic, the story takes place in a mental health clinic in Conneticut, isolated in the countryside. First premiering in Chicago in 2015 to rave reviews, Rabe shows no sign of slowing down at 77, with his innate ability to create richly drawn characters from all walks of life. Within this microcosm are the outpatients, all struggling to make sense of their mental illness, and the difficulties faced by the therapists trying to heal them.

Peace for Mary Frances

Opens April 6, 2018

Lois Smith takes the lead in this poignant and hysterically funny comedy-drama, that explores the tempestuous relationships between a New England matriarch and her family. Lily Thorne's latest world premiere will be under the helm of in-demand director Lila Neugebauer, whose previous credits include 2015's Kill Floor, The Aliens, The Valley of Fear, Trudy & Max in Love and many others. Smith's most recent role was in Jordan Harrison's 2015 drama Marjorie Prime. This newest play will form part of The New Group's Spring 2018 season.
