“Powerful, provocative, thrilling. Denise Gough is stunning.” —TIME OUT

Emma was having the time of her life. Now she’s in rehab. But the problem isn’t with Emma, it’s with everything else. When intoxication feels like the only way to survive the modern world, how can she ever sober up? Following sold-out runs at the National Theatre and in London’s West End, Denise Gough reprises her Olivier Award-winning role of a life spinning recklessly out of control.

AMERICAN PREMIERE

JAN 9–28

— THE GUARDIAN

VVVV — THE STAGE

Based on the memoir by Didier Eribon Directed by Thomas Ostermeier Featuring Nina Hoss

AMERICAN PREMIERE

FEB 4–25

Tickets start at $35 A sound studio. An actress is recording a voiceover and at the mixing desk, a director is giving her instructions. Above, a film is running. They’re working on the text for Returning to Reims, a documentary adaptation of Didier Eribon’s memoir about his homecoming as a gay man after years of estrangement. Through the text, they confront Eribon’s painful discovery that the traditionally left-wing parties and liberal middle-class, with which he now identifies, are perpetuating marginalization of the working-class to which he once belonged, and workers are running into the arms of the right-wing National Front. How have things come to this? As populism marches around the globe, does political activism still have a role to play? Featuring Homeland’s Nina Hoss in a “magnetic” performance, director Thomas Ostermeier “turns the stage into a source of living debate …a poignant political drama about change and the left’s disregard of the working class” (The Guardian). His production provides a key understanding of what’s gripping contemporary society. Returning to Reims is commissioned by Schaubühne Berlin and Manchester International Festival. Produced by Schaubühne Berlin with Manchester International Festival, HOME Manchester and Théâtre de la Ville Paris. Opening Night THU FEB 8 | Inside Circle Dinner TUE FEB 13 | #SAWReims

MAR 8–25

Tickets start at $25 The Fall, a hit at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and currently on its way to London’s Royal Court, was devised collaboratively by a cast of seven actors who recount their experiences as student leaders of the #RhodesMustFall protest movement, which called for the teardown of a colonialist monument on their University of Cape Town campus. Marshaling the power of protest songs and dance, The Fall unpacks discrimination in all forms, exposing the impact of inflammatory iconography, crushing student debt and tuition fees, shedding light on similar debates here in America. The Stage calls the show “a truly ensemble production which has both teeth and heart, and one which stands for student revolt around the world and down the ages.”

Directed by Nikos Karathanos | Adapted by Nikos Karathanos and Giannis Asteris Following its sold-out World Premiere at the Ancient Theater of Epidaurus and in Athens, Greece, this vibrant restaging of Aristophanes’ ancient classic brings two Athenians to the country of the birds. Fed up with their city and the gods who rule over it, the mortals ask the birds to build them a new utopia that “embraces our inherent need to dream and offers hope for decadence.” (Art Forum )
