Harbor Stage Summer 2015 Season Brings ‘Detroit’ to Cape Cod

Also on the company’s slate: an original devised work about a trapped miner, and a revival of ‘A Doll’s House.’

WELLFLEET, MASS.: Harbor Stage Company, the artist-run ensemble that produces theatre on the shores of Wellfleet Harbor in Cape Cod, has announced its summer 2015 season. The season, its fourth in production, includes one world premiere and one regional premiere.

The season begins with a revival of Ibsen’s A Doll’s House (June 18–July 11), adapted and directed by Harbor Stage artistic director Robert Kropf and starring company cofounder Stacy Fischer in the lead role of Nora.

Next is the world premiere of Northside Hollow (July 16–Aug. 8), an original piece devised collaboratively by Harbor cofounders Jonathan Fielding and Brenda Withers. The play is about a miner who, trapped underground after a dangerous collapse, finds salvation in the arrival of an adventurous first responder.

The season will conclude with the Boston-area premiere of Lisa D’Amour’s Obie-winning Detroit (Aug. 13–Sept. 5). Set in the suburbs of an unnamed metropolis (not necessarily the one in the title), the play anatomizes a budding friendship between two very different couples. Local favorite Daisy Walker returns to the Harbor to direct the company.

Helping round out Harbor Stage’s acting company this summer will be frequent collaborators Alex Pollock and Robin Bloodworth. Making his Harbor debut will be actor, director and longtime Cape resident Allen Kennedy.

To account for increasing demand, the company will be adding a fifth weekly performance to their schedule this summer, offering an early evening curtain most Sundays at 5 p.m. And in keeping with their mission to present great plays at affordable prices, single tickets remain priced at $20 and will go on sale in April. Three Play Subscriptions are available for $57 and, with help from a generous grant from the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod, the group will once again host a pay-what-you-can night on the first Friday of each production’s run.
