The Gamm’s Season 31 Offers a Range of Classic and Contemporary Plays

A political satire by George Brant and a drama by Andrew Case about police brutality highlight a season that also includes Williams, Shakespeare and McDonagh.

PAWTUCKET, R.I.: The Sandra-Feinstein Gamm Theatre has announced its 2015–16 season, titled Season 31. It will feature classic plays, a modern favorite and two new works.

The season will open with Tennessee Williams’s iconic A Streetcar Named Desire (Sept.–Oct.). Next is Andrew Case’s The Rant (Nov.–Dec.), a new play about the police murder of an unarmed teenager.

Opening in time for primary season is George Brant’s political satire Grizzly Mama (Jan.–Feb. 2016), in which a woman follows her dream of being in politics after the death of her mother.

And to honor the Irish in all of us around St. Patrick’s Day, Martin McDonagh’s A Skull in Connemara (Feb.–March 2016), the mystery of an unsolved killing of a local gravediggers wife, is next.

Season 31 will close with Shakespeare’s A Winter’s Tale (April–May 2016) to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the playwright’s death.
