Season 2021-2022 mainstage productions:
Following new health and safety protocols, the season begins with John Cariani’s Almost, Maine (2006), which is made up of nine vignettes about falling in and out of love and the desire to connect – the ideal piece to mark Palm Beach Dramaworks’ re-opening and the chance to reconnect with theatre and with each other. Next up, on December 10, is the world premiere of Michael McKeever’s The People Downstairs, commissioned by Palm Beach Dramaworks (PBD) and developed by The Dramaworkshop, which explores the challenges faced by the brave individuals who hid and took care of Anne Frank and seven others during the Holocaust.
On February 4, 2022, Joanna McClelland Glass’s Trying (2004) will take the stage; a memory play based on the playwright’s stint as secretary to Francis Biddle, who served as FDR’s attorney general and later was a judge at the Nuremberg trials.
The fourth production, opening April 1, 2022, is Lynn Nottage’s Intimate Apparel (2003), set at the turn of the 20th century, which tells the story of a 35-year-old African-American seamstress who enters into a correspondence with a man she’s never met in the hope of finding love.
The final production of the season, opening on May 27, 2022, will be another world premiere The Belle of Amherst. Based on the life of Emily Dickinson, this one-woman show tells the story of the independent, enigmatic, reclusive, witty poet through her letters, verse, and the playwright’s rich imagination, interweaving the voices of friends, family, and acquaintances to create a vivid portrait of the artist.
