Renaissance Theaterworks Announces All-Female 2018-19 Season

The season will include works by Karen Zacarías, Anna Ziegler, and Reina Hardy.

MILWAUKEE: Renaissance Theaterworks has announced its 2018-19 season celebrating women, which they’ve titled “She Blinded Me with Science.”

The season will start with the Br!nk New Play Festival (July 31-Aug. 5), featuring staged readings of two full-length plays and a series of 10-minute plays by Midwestern female writers.

Next up will be Native Gardens (Oct. 19-Nov. 11), by Karen Zacarías, about the clash or cultures when a Latino family moves next door to a well-established white couple in D.C. and their prize-winning garden. Marti Gobel will direct.

Following will be Photograph 51 (Jan. 18-Feb. 10, 2019), by Anna Ziegler, about Rosalind Franklin, the young physicist who discovered the double helix of DNA. Suzan Fete will direct.

The season will conclude with Annie Jump and the Library of Heaven (March 29-April 21, 2019), by Reina Hardy. The play, which was developed as part of the 2017 Br!nk Festival, is about a 13-year-old science genius who goes on a journey to find her place in the universe with Althea, an intergalactic supercomputer.

Renaissance Theaterworks, founded in 1993, is Milwaukee’s only women-founded, women-run professional theatre company.
