nder the direction of Founding Artistic Director Robert Kelley, TheatreWorks is celebrating 42 years of award-winning theatre in the San Francisco Bay Area. Since its founding in 1970, the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts Home Company has become one of the nation’s leaders in cultivating and producing new works, including 56 world premieres. This season, TheatreWorks will once again present the area’s first look at several news-making productions. SENSE AND SENSIBILITY By Roger Parsley and Andy Graham Based on the novel by Jane Austen American Premiere Fortune lost to fate, romance lost to folly, two charming sisters sail the unpredictable seas of courtship in this captivating, intimate adaptation. Sensible, reserved Elinor and passionate, impulsive Marianne find the course of true love beset with scandalous secrets, shocking betrayals, dashing suitors, and devious rivals, all brought to glorious life in a delicious, period-perfect tribute to everything Austen. On MainStage August 24 – September 18. CLEMENTINE IN THE LOWER 9 By Dan Dietz World Premiere Rebuilding a house, a love, a family, and a soul is the task of this powerfully human drama set in post-Katrina New Orleans. Here the legacy of the past haunts the realities of the present. Here the bluesy sounds of an onstage jazz band accompany a saxophonist and his wife as they struggle to reconnect the electricity, the

plumbing, and the relationships devastated by the flood of a lifetime. Contains brief nudity and mature language. On MainStage October 5 – 30. THE PITMEN PAINTERS By Lee Hall West Coast Premiere From the writer of the mega-hit film and musical Billy Elliot comes another absorbing London/Broadway success! A funny play that asks big questions, it tells the rousing, true story of a hardscrabble group of 1930s miners who take up painting and become sensations of the British art world. Their exhilarating journey from pit to pinnacle overflows with spirit and laughter, as rich and intriguing as the art it unveils. “Great heart and humor! A superb play.” (The New Yorker) On MainStage January 18 – February 12. OF MICE AND MEN By John Steinbeck Crafted for the stage by Steinbeck himself, this beloved drama is a deeply moving tribute to the strength of friendship and the depth of the American dream. Protective George and his gentle giant of a friend Lennie are migrant workers on a Salinas Valley ranch during the Great Depression. Their hopes for a place of their own come close to fruition, but fate intervenes in a powerhouse saga of conscience and character. “Grabs you by the heart and never lets go.” (The New York Times) On MainStage April 4 - 29.

WHEELHOUSE Book, Music, & Lyrics by Gene Lewin, Brendan Milburn, & Valerie Vigoda World Premiere In a comically touching ode to the road, a traveling rock band cuts back on expenses, hitting the highway in a well-worn Winnebago. When their plan backfires with a bang, it threatens the sweet harmonies that hold them together. The pop-rock trio GrooveLily, creator of the popular TheatreWorks/Off-Broadway hit Striking 12, stars in this irresistible autobiographical musical about traveling tunesmiths in desperate need of a tune-up. “Richly tuneful, lyrically playful...that’s the like-no-other GrooveLily” (Philadelphia Daily News) On MainStage June 6 - July 1.
