iTheatre Collaborative's 2018 / 2019 Season!


White Guy on the Bus

by Bruce Graham
September 7-22, 2018

A shocking and excoriating new play that unravels a complex web of moral ambiguity, class conflict, and the racial divide in America. A wealthy white businessman and a struggling black single mom ride the same bus week after week. The question is why he rides the bus and what does he want from her? The answers, like race, are not so easy.


The Trial of the Catonsville Nine

by Daniel Berrigan
October 19-November 3, 2018

Fifty years ago nine people, including two Catholic priests, entered the Selective Service office in Catonsville, MD and removed 378 draft cards and burned them in the parking lot with homemade napalm to protest the war in Vietnam. Based on the trial transcripts, the play delves into the moral and religious motives of the nine, and why “the burning of paper not children.”


Hostage

by Michelle Kholos Brooks
January 18-February 2, 2019

Based on the true events of 1979 when students in Tehran took over the American Embassy. The mother of the youngest hostage, a 19 year-old Marine, flew to Tehran in the hope of being allowed to see her son. The play imagines what happened when mother and son were reunited, and the consequences the mother faced when she returned home and was suddenly suspect in her own country. Never doubt the ferocity of a mother’s love.


Frost/Nixon

by Peter Morgan
March 29-April 13, 2019

Determined to resurrect his talk-show career, David Frost risks everything on a series of in-depth interviews in order to extract an apology from Nixon. The cagey Nixon, however, is equally bent on redeeming himself in his nation's eyes. In the television age, image is king, and both men are desperate to out-talk and upstage each other as the cameras roll. The result is the interview that sealed a president's legacy.
