The Wilma Theater is proud to announce the complete 2022/23 Season. Subscription packages for the 22/23 Season are on sale now.
“In the 2022-2023 season, we’re producing five plays jam-packed with intellect and feeling. Many brilliant and generous voices contributed to the process of selecting this year’s offerings, from both new and returning Wilma artists,” shared Lead Co-Artistic Director Morgan Green. “The theater we’re producing this season asks probing questions of theater itself: Whose stories can we tell and for whom? What is the nature of laughter and how does it heal? How can we leave a place better than we found it?”
The 2022-23 Season begins this fall with Those With 2 Clocks, created and performed by Tall Order, the artistic collaboration of Jennifer Kidwell (Underground Railroad Game), Jess Conda (A Hard Time) and Mel Krodman (A Hard Time), and continues with School Pictures created and performed by Milo Cramer (Cute Activist), directed by Lead Co-Artistic Director Morgan Green.
The season continues in 2023 with Kiss, by Guillermo Calderón (Neva) and directed by Fadi Skeiker (University of the Arts); and Eternal Life Part 1 by Nathan Alan Davis (Nat Turner in Jerusalem), directed by Morgan Green. The season will conclude with a new adaptation of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, adapted and directed by Co-Artistic Director Yury Urnov.
Earlier this week, The Wilma’s Co-Artistic Director James Ijames was honored with the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for the streaming production of Fat Ham. Directed by Co-Artistic Director Morgan Green, the Pulitzer board called the piece, “a funny, poignant play that deftly transposes “Hamlet” to a family barbecue in the American South to grapple with questions of identity, kinship, responsibility, and honesty.”
Streaming performances and safety requirements for entry will be announced at a later date.
