​VANYA AND SONIA AND MASHA AND SPIKE
​by ​Christopher Durang
directed by Bart DeLorenzo
September 30 - October 21, 2018

In Bucks County, PA, Vanya and Sonia share a country house where they fret endlessly—and amusingly—about their hapless lives. When Masha, their self-absorbed movie-star sister, and her much, much younger boy toy, Spike, visit for the weekend, the entire household gets hilariously upended. Rivalries are rekindled, resentments rage, the housekeeper blurts out strange prophecies and Masha announces she’s selling the house. A tongue-in-cheek homage to Chekhov, this Tony Award-winning comedy was described as “deliciously madcap” by USA Today.

directed by Lisa Peterson
December 30, 2018 - January 20, 2019

Those equal​-opportunity offenders are back at it, bringing their special style of irreverent, thought-provoking social satire with them. SCR audiences first experienced their smart, outrageous ​comedy in a playful adaptation of The Birds and later with the wildly popular Culture Clash in AmeriCCa. With the world back under their microscope, expect laundry to be aired, public figures skewered and sacred cows poked. In other words: Classic Culture Clash!

​​PHOTOGRAPH 51
​by ​​Anna Ziegler
Directed by Kimberly Senior
March 2-24, 2019

Rosalind Franklin was a British pioneer in science in the early 1950s, yet her groundbreaking role in the discovery of DNA’s double helix structure is still often overlooked. Based on a true story, Photograph 51 presents an intriguing portrait of a complex, courageous woman making her way in a male-dominated field. While rival teams of researchers compete for a breakthrough, Rosalind, focused and unbending, is locked in a race of her own. A hit in the West End, it was proclaimed “A triumph” by The Telegraph.
