2019-2020 Season Plays

In this season of “Awakenings” we staged new plays & Tony and Pulitzer Prize winners.

The Heidi Chronicles​


​Directed by Ilana Linden
September 20 – October 5, 2019 on the Mainstage

​Witty, funny and touching, this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning play traces the coming of age of Heidi Holland from a 1960’s teen to a 1980’s career woman.

In a rapidly changing world, Heidi seeks to achieve political, professional and personal fulfillment. Can Heidi “have it all”?

FireWorks Festival 2019

Produced by Molly Thom and Liz Best

November 6 – 24, 2019 in the Studio

Thought-provoking and daring, Alumnae’s acclaimed three-week festival premieres original, full-length plays in development. Post-show discussions spark fresh insights into making theatre.

​Now in its seventh year, FireWorks 2019 begins with a rowdy cabaret in the Klondike, Week 2 examines the intrusion of media in private grief, and Week 3 offers a lopsided fairy tale farce for the post #MeToo audience. Not to be missed.

The Trip to Bountiful


Directed by Brenda Darling
January 17 – February 1, 2020 on the Mainstage

Eighty-year-old Carrie Watts is hilarious and crafty, frail and unexpectedly tough. Having spent her twilight years with her son and his abusive wife, she plans her getaway to Bountiful, her increasingly idealized hometown.

​This multi-award winning story has won acclaim on Broadway, in film and as a TV movie. It’ll break your heart and bring you to laughter.

Alumnae Theatre Company
2019/2020 Season


In tiny increments and sudden leaps, we consciously and unconsciously transform every day – new ideas, new discoveries and realizations often lead to growth. In our 102nd season, we’re exploring these “awakenings” through the canvas of the women’s movement from 1890 to present day.

​We offer new plays-in-progress and tried-and-true Tony and Pulitzer Prize winners.
What births new identities? How do our perceptions evolve?
​Please join us for a very entertaining, thought provoking season.
