Season Preview: The Theatre at Arts Garage

The 2014-15 season at Arts Garage is all about women—playwrights, that is. Under the theme of “A Celebration of Women’s Voices,” Arts Garage’s main-stage theater season hosts three works by female playwrights, all of which explore universal themes while highlighting the prowess of female writers and spotlighting new works.

   “This is part of a national conversation that’s very important right now that transcends theater,” explains Artistic Director Lou Tyrrell. “It’s a joy to be a part of that conversation and to be a tiny part of the solution.”

   Beginning November 7, Arts Garage presents The How and the Why, by Sarah Treem, a writer and producer for such television shows as House of Cards and In Treatment. A two-hander, this play follows two female scientists as they meet and subsequently clash over opposing views before discovering their common history.

   Then, from January 16 to February 8, catch Lauren Gunderson’s I and You. Also a two-person play, I and You explores the relationship between two opposite high school students. Still a developing playwright, Gunderson received the Steinberg New Play Award from the American Theatre Critics Association in 2014 for this production.  

   The season closes with the world premiere of Allison Gregory’s Uncertain Terms, March 6-29. Following their divorce, Dani and Harry’s house is put on the market. There’s just one problem—Harry won’t leave. During production, Gregory will join Arts Garage as an artist in residence, further buttressing the season’s goal of celebrating and showcasing American female playwrights.
