It is a season full of remarkable, innovative artists exploring well-known stories with original interpretations.” – Interim Artistic Director Kelly Kitchens
Three of the four plays this season will feature the “Book-It Style” which transforms narrative from the text into compelling and revelatory dialogue between characters.

In a fictional Latin American country, two hungry children are orphaned by a U.S.-backed coup. Fifteen years later they return, a modern-day Hansel and Gretel, to follow what migas they can in search of their father. Revisiting the scene of the violence they survived, they discover a landscape of secrets and sacrifice they are only beginning to understand.

Dive into adventure with Book-It’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. From the visionary novel by Jules Verne comes the iconic story of a journey into strange environs, the quest for scientific knowledge, and, of course, a giant squid. Considered one of the greatest adventure books of all time, 20,000 Leagues asks us what will become of humanity as technology allows us to explore—and exploit—the natural world. This world premiere script from Eddie DeHais thrillingly embraces the Book-It Style of active narrative to reveal the urgency, humor, and prescience of Verne’s reckoning with the same topics we face today.
