PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN

A FAMILY FOR ALL OCCASIONS - SPRING 2013 Howard just wants to be able to express himself and to be lent an ear! But his wife is way past listening, and his teen-aged kids prefer their Dad rarely seen and never heard. So when his promiscuous daughter’s latest suitor drops by with his flair for words and odd devotion to family, Howard’s prayers appear answered -- until his home life is thrown dangerously and irrevocable off-course. A wry, heartfelt comedy from the author of Jack Goes Boating and A View From 151st Street.

STEPHEN ADLY GUIRGIS

A NEW PLAY BY STEPHEN ADLY GUIRGIS - SUMMER 2013 Whether it’s a few Saints fighting over Judas’s fate or a bunch of down-andouts dreaming of a land in which they’d all be kings, the plays of Stephen Adly Guirgis tackle life’s biggest questions with a streetwise wit and an open heart – always searching for that touch of grace in an ugly, violent world. This season, we are thrilled to present the latest work from the Tony-nominated author of The Motherf**ker With The Hat, Our Lady of 121st Street, and Jesus Hopped The A Train.

NEWYORKNEWYORK is a week-long tribute to the plays and culture of New York City featuring Labyrinth artists, friends, special guests, and – of course – YOU! BARN SERIES And coming back for its fourteenth straight year is the BARN SERIES, our annual festival of brand new plays, featuring the work of Labyrinth Company Members and guest artists engaged in our unique development process. The readings, which take place over the course of the entire Season, are the first public presentations of these dynamic new works. It’s a rare chance for our audiences to participate in shaping plays that are eventually seen fully produced on our stage, as well as on stages across the country – and the world.
