2011 / 2012 Season

This season, TACT is delighted to present its own literary version of the “odd couple”- pairing up two seemingly disparate writers to make up one wonderfully connected season. In October we open with A.R. Gurney’s brilliant, yet often overlooked 1970s dramatic comedy, Children and follow that up with Neil Simon’s 1991 Pulitzer Prize winning Lost in Yonkers in the spring. Focusing on the struggles which define familial discontent, both playwrights take us deep inside the workings of two seemingly different clans, whose poignant, often darkly funny fights for survival are at the heart of the action. For both Simon and Gurney, family togetherness means a precarious balancing act between filial loyalty, identity, and commitment, coupled with repression, jealousy, family skeletons, and all of those delicious dysfunctional dynamics that create compelling storytelling — and great theatre.

Our 2011/12 season: theatre that enlivens, enriches, and entertains. Isn’t that just about EVERYTHING?
