2017 - 2018 MIAMI NEW DRAMA SEASON

OUR TOWN

October 26 – November 19

World Premiere Version

Thornton Wilder’s iconic, Pulitzer Prize winning play is re-imagined for Miami in the 21st century in a new production where characters will speak English, Spanish and Creole, in translations by Miami-bred playwrights Nilo Cruz and Jeff Augustin. The production marks the first time the Wilder Estate has allowed the text of the play to be altered. By adding new layers of language and culture, Our Town expands to encompass everyone in a quintessential American – and human – story. The play will be directed by Michel Hausmann and is the recipient of the Knight Arts Challenge Award from the Knight Foundation.

THE ELABORATE ENTRANCE OF CHAD DEITY

January 25 – February 18

In co-production with ASOLO REP

A body-slamming satire about race, stereotypes, and the battle for the American soul, The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity turns the struggle for success in the world of pro-wrestling into a rollicking parable of political manipulation. Kristoffer Diaz’s Obie Award winning 2009 drama, a Pulitzer Prize finalist that’s played major stages across the U.S., is tailor-made for the era of politics-as-reality-show and wrestling CNN.

QUEEN OF BASEL

April 12 – May 6

A new play

One of America’s hottest young female playwrights revamps Strindberg’s classic Miss Julie as an explosive, only-in-Miami story of power, class, desire and the haunting grip of tragedy. Hilary Bettis, a writer on the FX hit The Americans, sets her tale at a luxurious hotel during Art Basel Miami Beach, where Julie, the owner’s spoiled daughter, is thrown together with a waitress fleeing the violence in Venezuela and her Afro-Cuban fiancé. Commissioned by Miami New Drama and directed by Michel Hausmann, this world premiere production puts the audience onstage with the actors for a riveting theatrical journey.

THE ALBUM

May 31 – June 3

In co-production with Tectonic Theater Project

Presidential Medal of the Arts winner and MiND’s co-founder Moisés Kaufman and his groundbreaking Tectonic Theater Project join the theater on a challenging new play to launch the “work in progress” series. The Album is inspired by The Höcker Album, a chilling collection of photos of Nazi officers frolicking at a retreat just 20 miles from the Auschwitz concentration camp. Kaufman and the team behind The Laramie Project will explore a daunting question with the audience: what makes human beings capable of profound evil?
