PASADENA, CALIF.: The Theatre @ Boston Court has announced its 2015 mainstage season. On tap will be the world premiere of The Missing Pages of Lewis Carroll by Lily Blau, the West Coast premieres of My Barking Dog by Eric Coble and Shiv by Aditi Brennan Kapil, and Seven Spots on the Sun by Martin Zimmerman, directed by Andrei Belgrader and co-produced with Rattlestick Playwrights Theater in New York City.
All of these productions will take place at Boston Court Performing Arts Center at 70 North Mentor Avenue. Additionally, the Theatre @ Boston Court will present Mojada: A Medea in Los Angeles by Luis Alfaro, off-site at the Getty Villa in Malibu in September 2015. The season represents the return of two Boston Court favorites: Belgrader, who directed the current Beckett show there, Happy Days, and Alfaro, an L.A.-based artist whose Oedipus el Rey previously bowed at the theatre.
