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!

THE HUMANS

Sept 14 – Oct 9, 2022 | Proscenium Stage
By Stephen Karam

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.”

FIRE IN THE NEW WORLD

Oct 19 – Nov 6, 2022 | Proscenium Stage
By R.A. Shiomi

Noir Mystery | World Premiere

Sam Shikaze, hard-boiled private eye, fights crime and discrimination in Vancouver’s Japantown in the years after WWII. When the beautiful Japanese American wife of an ambitious real estate developer goes missing, Sam is on the case in this savvy detective caper! Smart and fun with a dash of social commentary and plenty of sly intrigue.

THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK

Jan 18 – Feb 12, 2023 | Proscenium Stage
By Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett

Real-life Tragedy | NEW 25th Anniversary Production

An all-new telling of history we must never forget. As the Frank family hides in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam, Anne shares both her everyday teenage challenges and the terror of the holocaust. Over 265,000 students have experienced Anne Frank’s story on the Park Square stage. Now more relevant than ever, for its 25th year, comes a new production of this resonant story of hope and imagination in the darkest of times.

THE REVOLUTIONISTS

Mar 29 – Apr 16, 2023 | Proscenium Stage
By Lauren Gunderson

Riotous Comedy

Four women find themselves caught up in the French Revolution: an assassin, a spy, a playwright, and, of course, Marie Antoinette. They plot murder, find friendship (and do some good writing), in this irreverent, poignant, rebellious comedic romp that considers how we go about changing the world.

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

FOOLS AND LOVERS

Jun 7 – Jul 2, 2023 | Boss Stage
Adaptations of Shakespeare by Gregory Wolfe and Gregory Sherman
Original Music by Andrew Sherman

Immersive Musical Comedy | Regional Premiere

Much Ado About Nothing meets Tony and Tina’s Wedding in a beguiling mashup of the classical and comedic. With text drawn entirely from Shakespeare’s plays, some set to music, Fools and Lovers invites you into an immersive wedding experience where love can be found in all its guises — young, questioned, rejected, rediscovered — and ultimately conquering all.

While theatregoers may start the evening playing ‘Place That Quote,’ Wolfe’s effervescent staging and Andrew Sherman’s winsome melodies quickly dispel such intellectual pursuits, leaving us to bask in the warm glow of this musical valentine.”
