Saturday, June 20, 4:00 p.m. - Wolf in the Winter Palace

War and winter are at the door, and the world's greatest museum stands empty. It's up to one extraordinary hero to protect its treasures and save humanity.

Saturday, June 20, 7:30 p.m. - Mosquito
by Josh Beerman, directed by Sheila Daniels

Summer in the city and the living isn't easy. Can Penelope and Owen survive another sleepless night confronted with secrets, half-truths and a restless daughter? Writer Josh Beerman's dialogue explores the questions we ask ourselves when we have no place to turn.

Sunday, June 21, 4:00 p.m. - The Manor
by Holly Arsenault, directed by Erin Kraft

At Pleasant Springs Manor Nursing Home, Gil Fleischman, the only male resident, stays busy keeping the beds of his female co-residents warm. But questions of consent become tricky with the arrival of a new aide, and trickier still when Gil begins to lose his memory.



Seattle Rep's New Play Program is the theatre's formalized program dedicated to cultivating new voices and presenting world premieres by some of the country's top playwrights. The program encompasses a robust commissioning division, a rigorous calendar of developmental readings and workshops, and an eight-member Writers Group, a collective of regional playwrights who are awarded a two-year residency with access to Seattle Rep resources.

Recent world premieres to emerge from the New Play Program include Robert Schenkkan's The Great Society (2014), Samuel D. Hunter's A Great Wilderness (2014), David Pichette's and R. Hamilton Wright's adaptation of The Hound of the Baskervilles (2013), Elizabeth Heffron's Bo-Nita (2013), Cheryl L. West's Pullman Porter Blues (2012) and Bill Cain's How to Write a New Book for the Bible (2012).

More information about the Writers Group is available at www.seattlerep.org/NewPlays.
