The Taming of the Shrew
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Shana Cooper
Ist Reh: April 28, 2022, 1st Prev.: June 5, 2022, Closes: July 10, 2022 (Opening Night: June 11)
Lowell Davies Festival Theatre, Old Globe Theatre, Conrad Prebys Theatre Center.
“Come on, and kiss me, Kate.”

Can anyone “tame” the brash and headstrong Katherine? The dashing adventurer Petruchio thinks he’s the man for the job. Two of the sexiest spirits in all of world theatre set off sparks in a clash of wills that is as hilarious as it is outrageous. Shakespeare’s masterful comedic take on the battle of the sexes turns everything we think about love, marriage, and gender on its head. Director Shana Cooper brings to the Globe her daring and contemporary staging, which The New York Times praised as “an exhilarating new way to look at the comedy through modern eyes,” and The Wall Street Journal’s theatre critic called “the best Shrew I’ve ever reviewed.”

Roles will be understudied.

Mala
By Melinda Lopez
Directed by David Dower

POSSIBLE EXTENSION THROUGH JUNE 19, 2022
Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre, Conrad Prebys Theatre Center

She was always the good daughter. But now her mother, in the twilight of her life, calls her “mala”—bad to the core. Melinda Lopez’s funny, brutally honest, and ultimately cathartic solo play is an irreverent exploration of how we live, cope, and survive in a challenging moment, and what happens when we strive to be good but don’t always succeed. Theatermania calls it “deeply affecting,” while The Boston Globe named it “one of the best plays of the year. Piercingly honest and exquisitely
moving.”

In our commitment to provide access to the widest San Diego audience, The Old Globe will present Mala in Spanish on selected dates.

Role will be understudied. Understudy must be bilingual.

MALA (Female, Latinx, 40s) A natural, powerful storyteller. First-generation. As smart as the smartest person watching the show. – ROLE HAS BEEN CAST.


Globe-Commissioned World-Premiere Adaptation
Dial M for Murder
By Frederick Knott
Adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher
Directed by Stafford Arima
1st Reh: June 17, 2022, 1st Prev: July 21, 2022, Closes: August 21, 2022 (Opening Night: July 28)
Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre, Conrad Prebys Theatre Center

A new version of the celebrated murder mystery that inspired Hitchcock’s masterpiece! Tony is convinced that his wife Margot has been cheating on him. Now it seems that the affair is over, but in his jealousy Tony spins a web of suspicion and deception that will tighten around them and ensnare them both in danger, recrimination, and murder. The New York Times calls Dial M for Murder “a cat-and-mouse waiting game, with enough twists and sudden hitches to keep the chills and thrills running.” Acclaimed playwright Jeffrey Hatcher (Scotland Road, Wait Until Dark) brings us an edge-of-your-seat, world-premiere adaptation of this modern classic, directed in high style by Globe veteran Stafford Arima (Allegiance, Red Velvet) in our most intimate performance space.

Roles will be understudied.

Characters:

Tony Windice: a retired, British tennis pro now selling sports equipment, likes the finer things in life, but cannot afford them. His solution is to have his wealthy wife murdered. A self-assured schemer who thinks he's plotted the perfect crime. Of course, he's wrong.

Margot Windice:Tony's British wife, beautiful and wealthy. She and Tony's marriage has not always been strong, but she foolishly thinks it is going well now. She's wrong--almost dead wrong. Her true love is Max.

Max Holiday:a New Yorker who writes for television crime shows, loves Margot, expressing his love in letters that Tony discovers and uses to blackmail his wife. Max is determined to exonerate Margot when she receives the death sentence for murdering Lesgate.

Captain Lesgate: also known as C.A. Swann, Adams, and Wilson, is three years older than Tony and attended Cambridge at the same time he did. He is a thief and a murderer, and Tony convinces him to murder his wife for a thousand pounds. The plot fails, and Lesgate is murdered instead.

Inspector Hubbard: The intelligent policeman who solves the crime.

Thompson: A police constable working under Inspector Hubbard.

World Premiere
What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank
By Nathan Englander
Directed by Barry Edelstein
1st Reh: August 12, 2022, 1st Prev: September 15, 2022, Closes: October 16, 2022 (Opening Night: September 22, 2022)
Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre, Conrad Prebys Theatre Center

Pulitzer Prize finalist Nathan Englander and director Barry Edelstein wowed Globe audiences with The Twenty-Seventh Man, and now they team up again for this world premiere of a modern-day comedy of friendship. What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank is Englander’s adaptation of his award-winning short story about two high school friends from suburban New York whose adult lives have taken them to opposite ends of the earth, and to wildly different experiences of culture, religion, and family. Reuniting for the first time in years, their love for each other is tested by the distance that has grown between them... and also by their husbands, who don’t exactly see eye to eye. Englander’s distinctive voice—by turns hilarious, outrageous, and emotional—makes this play a uniquely funny and smart exploration of how we see ourselves, and how our friends see us. Contains strong language.

Roles will be understudied.

Characters:

Debbie, (40s) Suburban mom. Jewish, very secular Went to high school in NYC, now lives in Florida. Earnest, hopeful.

Lauren, (40s) Ultra-Orthodox Jewish woman. Debbie's childhood best friend, now lives in Israel. Mother of twelve.

Phil, (40s) Jewish, very secular. Debbie's Husband. Ironic, dry sense of humor, bit of a smart aleck.

Mark, (40s) Ultra-Orthodox Jewish man. Lauren's Husband. Pompous but well-intentioned.

Trevor, (16) Debbie & Phil's Son. Typical suburban teen. Smart and a little sullen, and a stoner.
