Works by Noël Coward, Ingmar Bergman, Alan Ayckbourn and Lynn Nottage will be featured in the five-play 2014 season at Westport Country Playhouse.
The theme of the 84th season of the theater will be love — which is also the season theme of Connecticut Repertory Theatre on the UConn campus in Storrs.
“A rich variety of offerings, each exploring the different facets of love: passionate, cruel, remembered, longed-for, or hysterically silly,” says artistic director Mark Lamos.
The season opens with a co-production with Hartford Stage, Coward’s bittersweet play “A Song at Twilight,” directed by Lamos which will run April 29 to May 17 following its run in HHartford Feb. 20 to March 16.
The season’s second production, playing June 10 to 28 is still to be announced. Directed by Lamos, it will be either a comedy or a world premiere musical event.
“Nora,” Bergman’s adaptation of Henrik Ibsen’s “A Doll’s House,” translated into the English language by Frederick J. Marker and Lisa-Lone Marker, will run July 15 to Aug. 2, 2014, directed by David Kennedy, associate artistic director.
The Ayckbourn comedy, “Things We Do for Love,” will run Aug. 19 to Sept. 6, 2014.
Rounding out the season, Oct. 7 to 25, 2014, is “Intimate Apparel” by Pulitzer Prize-winner Nottage.
