Throughline Theatre returns this season at Grey Box Theater, as we eagerly await this year’s intriguing theme of Can You Trust the Government? Pittsburgh in the Round has this season’s preview of what to be expected.
The season will open June 10th with the premiere of Judgement at Nuremburg written by Abby Mann and Directed by Liam Macik. Set in 1947 this piece will take audiences back to post WW2 Germany, where four judges who served during the Nazi regime will face charges of crimes against humanity. This production will run from June 10th to June 18th, followed by the classic Julius Caesar written by none other than William Shakespeare and directed by Joey Yow. Audiences expecting to see Throughline’s take on this oldie but goodie can do so from July 22nd-30th.
Througline’s third production this summer will be The Censor, written by David L. Williams and directed by Sarah McPartland. This piece will follow Charlotte Coates, a government censor, as she befriends a transgender censored artist and helps him make plans to escape the oppressive territory and expose the corrupt regime. The Censor is the winner of Throughline’s New Play Competition and will run from September 16th-24th.
Throughline will close out this year’s season with Yankee Tavern, written by Steven Dietz and directed by Vance Weatherly. This piece, a dramatic thriller, will focus on a 9/11 conspiracy theory told by a patron at the bar, Yankee tavern. Those looking to indulge in this edge-of-your-seat play can do so from October 28th -November 5th.
All productions will run at grey box theater in Lawrenceville for two weekends, the premiere being Friday at 8 PM, followed by a 2 PM (pay what you can) performance proceeded by a 8 PM show on Saturday, in the first week. The second weekend will consist of a Thursday night and Friday night performance, both showing at 8 PM. With the exclusion of the Saturday matinee, all performances are $20 for general admission and $15 for seniors or those with valid student ID.
