The University of Washington School of Drama will present thought-provoking plays, a new work by professor Jeffrey Frace and selected Tennessee Williams’ one-act plays during its new 2012-13 season.
The drama school’s new season lineup:
• “Landscape of the Body”: Nov. 7. This is John Guare’s story, set in the 1970s, and explores the pathos and craziness of that era when finding yourself was a familiar theme.
• ”Pentecost”: Feb. 20. David Edgar toys with the idea of remaking art history with this tale that stretches the boundaries of language, nationalism and imagination.
• ”Once Upon a Time Six Times in the West”: April 17. Written by professor Jeffrey Frace, the tale is based on iconic western films and examines changes in the art of storytelling.
• Tennessee Williams’ one-act plays: May 29. The season closes with this series curated and directed by MFA directing candidates.
UW School of Drama 2012-13 season runs through June 9.
