PITTSBURGH: City Theatre Company artistic director Tracy Brigden has announced the first three offerings of the company’s 2015–16 season, all of them provocative contemporary dramas in their Pittsburgh premieres, as well as a comic special event. Beginning on Oct. 10, it will be the theatre’s 41st season
“I am thrilled to bring these powerful new plays to Pittsburgh next year,” said Brigden in a statement. “All are captivating stories with gripping human moments—-but also with lots of laughs as well.”
The plays include Conor McPherson’s gritty Dublin parable The Night Alive; Dominique Morisseau’s Sunset Baby, about the child of black radicals struggling with her heritage; and Laura Eason’s digital-age romance Sex with Strangers.
