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.
