Welcome Back!

The intermission is over and we are thrilled to welcome you back to New Haven Theater Company for our 2021/2022 season. Our first production will be a workshop reading of an original script, Bleecker and Will by playwright and company member Steven Scarpa. We will follow that with a workshop reading of the funny and charming “play for voices” Under Milk Wood by the iconic Welsh poet Dylan Thomas. We will round out our “coming out” season with two fully staged productions to be announced soon. 

All performances for the workshop readings of Bleecker and Will and Under Milk Wood will be free of charge, but donations are always welcome and appreciated.

 

For your safety, and the safety of our cast and crew, COVID protocols are in place and we will continue to monitor and update these as the season continues in accordance with local, state and CDC guidelines. We thank you for continuing to support the arts, and we hope that you and your family are doing well in these challenging times.

We are excited to be back on stage and we can’t wait to see you at New Haven Theater Company –
IN PERSON – and soon!

I regard the theater as a serious business, one that makes or should make [us] more human,
which is to say, less alone.

Bleecker and Will
by Steve Scarpa

Bleecker lives in his store. Will lives for his boss. A chance meeting, beginning with banter, morphs to friendship and serious talk about life and how to live it. This new play by longtime NHTC member Steve Scarpa explores what it takes for strangers to become a family. 

November 19 - 20, 8PM

UNDER MILK WOOD
by Dylan Thomas

Originally commissioned by the BBC, Thomas' "play for voices" flashes the characters, voices, and dreams of a tiny Welsh village across your mind’s eye – dreams of love, fish, beer, cows, watered milk, bird watching, sex, and murder!
