The 19|20 BCT Season

Nine young women on stage. Lauren Weedman. A comedy… about depression. The story of a refugee. A World Premiere musical.

 

The Wolves
by Sarah Delappe
Oct 16 – Nov 9

Left quad. Right quad. Lunge. A girls indoor soccer team warms up. From the safety of their suburban stretch circle, the team navigates big questions and wages tiny battles with all the vim and vigor of a pack of adolescent warriors. A portrait of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for nine American girls who just want to score some goals. One of the most produced plays in the country, The Wolves received the American Playwriting Foundation’s inaugural Relentless Award, and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize and the Yale Drama Series Prize.

 

Tammy Lisa / Misery To Meaning
Written and Performed by Lauren Weedman
Previews Nov 20 – Dec 7

With her hair bigger than ever, Lauren Weedman (and her alter ego Tammy Lisa) and her fine band are ready to take you on a journey of heartbreak, laughter and fresh starts. “While the plot of the show centers on the issues of being betrayed and getting divorced, the themes are applicable to most anyone, for example, discovering who you really are, or finding yourself alone, or perhaps realizing that you’re not who you thought you were. This universality is what makes Lauren Weedman’s brand of comedy / performance so funny and so emotional. Whoever you are and whatever your life has been like, I’m betting you’ll find something in this show that hits close to home.” – Broadway World

 

The Way North
by Tira Palmquist
Jan 29 – Feb 15

When a lost, cold and very pregnant young woman stumbles onto her rural homestead in the Minnesota wilderness, Freddy Hansen doesn’t hesitate to take her in. It’s the right thing to do, and as the county’s former Sheriff, Freddy has dedicated her life to protecting and serving others. But when her new guest turns out to be a Sudanese refugee making a run for the Canadian border, what it means to protect and serve becomes a more complicated, and far more dangerous, question.

 

Every Brilliant Thing
by Duncan Macmillan with Johnny Donahoe
Mar 4 – 21

You’re six years old. Mum’s in hospital. Dad says she’s “done something stupid.” She finds it hard to be happy. So you start to make a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world. Everything that’s worth living for. 1. Ice cream. 2. Kung Fu movies. 3. Burning things. 4. Laughing so hard you shoot milk out your nose. 5. Construction cranes. 6. Me. You leave it on her pillow. You know she’s read it because she’s corrected your spelling. Soon, the list will take on a life of its own. A comedy about depression, and the lengths we will go to for those we love. “[A] heart-wrenching, hilarious play…One of the funniest plays you’ll ever see about depression—and possibly one of the funniest plays you’ll ever see, full stop…There is something tough being confronted here—the guilt of not being able to make those we love happy—and it is explored with unflinching honesty.” —The Guardian (UK)

The Show on the Roof
Music & Lyrics by Alex Syiek

“Enter into this show I’ve created. It may not be real, but real’s overrated.”
There’s a nightly floor show at the local drive-in… on the roof! Come on up for a journey through the turbulent times of 1955 in Boise, Idaho where no one is safe from suspicion. Join us for this world premiere musical that examines the homosexual panic that swept up the entire city. A surprising package of hilarity and heartbreak! Madcaps and mayhem! Song and dance!
This world premiere is commissioned with the generous support of Raulo and Allana Frear.
