We are thrilled to present this diverse and engaging season to our audience, offering unique perspectives on the contemporary world and providing a sneak peek at the work of future theatrical leaders. I hope you will join us to contemplate the world around us, challenge our own perceptions, and enjoy a memorable night out together. Nothing can rival the experience of live theatre.”

Join the struggle for solidarity in a bold adaptation of Brecht’s Saint Joan of the Stockyards

by Bertolt Brecht
Adapted and directed by MFA Candidate Jacob Zimmer
April 3–13, 2024
Preview: April 3
Frederic Wood Theatre 

Embark on an epic journey into the heart of capitalism, philanthropy, and the struggle for solidarity. Follow Joan Dark, a compassionate soul who strives to do good, Mauler the Meat King, a ruthless businessman who wants out of the market, and a group of starving workers organizing for their rights. This brand-new adaptation connects Brecht to our current reality, urging us to examine our aspirations to do good and the missed opportunities for cooperation in difficult times.
