Upcoming Shows 2022-2023

Announcing the 2022–2023 Season!

For this 48th season, the Park Square cohort of Artistic Associates has worked to select plays that come from many points of view. Park Square audiences value theatre that is entertaining and meaningful, where everyone is able to tell their story, and where we can hear and see each other with open hearts, particularly as we rebuild connections and communities after these years apart.

This powerful season includes two world premieres, two regional premieres, a Tony Award winner, a Pulitzer Prize winner, and the 25th anniversary of a play that has become central to Park Square’s youth education programs. We are so excited to share these productions with you!

Also on stage will be several youth productions with talented young artists from SteppingStone Theatre for Youth! While these plays are not part of subscription packages, we hope you will gather friends and family of all ages to enjoy these wonderful stories!

THE HUMANS

Sept 14 – Oct 9, 2022 | Proscenium Stage
By Stephen Karam
Directed by Lily Tung Crystal

Modern Drama | 2016 Tony Award winner for Best Play

Three generations of the Blake family have assembled for Thanksgiving and everyone is determined to make the best of it, but as they attempt to focus on the positive, old wounds, current mistakes, and future fears threaten their stability. Both blisteringly funny and deeply chilling, Stephen Karam (Sons of the Prophet) offers a stunning portrayal of the human condition; a family at its best and worst navigating the challenges of everyday life.

Kind, warm, beautifully observed and deeply moving new play, a celebration of working-class familial imperfection and affection and a game-changing work for this gifted young playwright.”
— Chicago Tribune

BETWEEN RIVERSIDE AND CRAZY

May 24 – Jun 18, 2023 | Proscenium Stage
By Stephen Adly Guirgis

Comedy-Drama | Winner of the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Drama

A sensational comedy-drama exploring fatherhood, loneliness, and the complexity of justice. Surrounded by a beautiful, eclectic stream of family and houseguests, ex-cop and recent widower “Pops” is barely holding on to his stability and his once-grand apartment on Manhattan’s Riverside Drive. Rich with the contradictions of human nature, and germane in its examination of policing and the Black experience, this award-winning play may not provide answers, but dives deeply into the questions challenging our society.

A rich new play… Mr. Guirgis has a splendid ear in blurring lines between the sacred and profane and it is a dizzying and exciting place to be.”
The New York Times
