We’re so excited to return to our beloved home at 46 Walker Street for the next five years thanks to a citywide effort led by the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment, our incredible Board, the leadership support of The Tow Foundation, and a huge family of friends and fans who helped us get back downtown. Here’s a look at what’s coming up this season:
The Writer/Director Lab
Join us back in our theater on Walker Street to meet the members of our 2017-19 Lab, along with co-chairs William Burke and Jackie Sibblies Drury, as they share some of their latest work with us.
STUDIO Workshop of FAIRVIEW
Join us for open rehearsals of FAIRVIEW after a two-week workshop with the creative team (Jackie Sibblies Drury, Sarah Benson, Mimi Lien) exploring design challenges and the latest draft of the piece as we prepare for production.
February 6 – March 11, 2018
IS GOD IS
Is God Is is a modern myth about twin sisters who sojourn from the Dirty South to the California desert to exact righteous revenge.
Winner of the 2016 Relentless Award, Aleshea Harris collides the ancient, the modern, the tragic, the Spaghetti Western, and Afropunk in this darkly funny and unapologetic world premiere directed by Taibi Magar. (get tickets)
May 29 – July 1, 2018
The Frasier family hasn’t been the same since Braden died, and Beverly needs this dinner to be perfect. But the silverware’s wrong, the radio’s on the fritz, Keisha is late, Jasmine is drinking, Dayton isn’t helping, and Mama won’t come downstairs.
Following her “inventive,” “pulse-pounding” We Are Proud to Present…(The New York Times, Time Out New York, and New York Magazine Critics’ Picks), Jackie Sibblies Drury returns to Soho Rep. with a well-made(ish) play directed by Sarah Benson. (get tickets)
In the STUDIO, we commission and develop work from the ground up. We’re expanding the program to support the development of at least eight new pieces that we plan on producing at 46 Walker from 2018 – 2022. Stay tuned for more info about projects we’re working on with Carmelita Tropicana & Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, Alice Birch, Becca Blackwell, Narcissister, and Kate Tarker.
Soho Rep.’s return to Walker Street is made possible with leadership support from Dorothy Berwin, Barry Feirstein, the Howard Gilman Foundation, James Gleick and Cynthia Crossen, Janice Lee and Stuart Shapiro, Jim and Laura Pizzo, Caryl Ratner, John A. Selzer, The Seth Sprague Educational and Charitable Foundation and The Tow Foundation.
