Next is Gary Graves’s Palace Wreckers, Inc (May 12-June 10, 2018), described simply as “comedy with a vengeance!”
Following is King of Cuba (July 21-Aug. 19, 2018), which Cristina García adapts from her comic novel of the same name.
The season closes with Graves’s Chekhov’s WARD 6 (Oct. 13-Nov. 11, 2018), descrbied as “a tale of madness, alienation, and moral responsibility.”
Founded in 1990, Central Works produces new plays using three basic strategies: with the Central Works Method, a collaborative development model; in the Central Works Writers Workshop; an ongoing commissioning program for local playwrights; and in arrangements with other development organizations. The theatre will perform its 2018 season at the Berkeley City Club.
