The season will include a world premiere adaptation of ‘Little Women’ that updates Alcott’s classic.

BUFFALO, N.Y.: Road Less Traveled Productions has announced its 2020-21 season, featuring five productions, including a world premiere adaptation from Donna Hoke.

The season will start with Murder Ballad (Sept. 10-Oct. 4), with book and lyrics by Julia Jordan and music and lyrics by Juliana Nash. This musical about a New York City love triangle gone wrong will be directed by Doug Weyand.

Up next is Donna Hoke’s world premiere adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s classic story. Little Women…Now (Nov. 19-Dec. 13) updates the March sisters and brings them into the 21st century. Katie Mallinson will direct.

Following will be Tribes (Jan. 14-Feb. 7), by Nina Raines. Directed by Doug Zschiegner, Tribes follows Billy, the only Deaf member of his family, as he meets a young woman on the brink of deafness.

Next, artistic director Scott Behrend will direct Jennifer Haley‘s  Breadcrumbs (March 4-28). The play follows a reclusive writer who, after being diagnosed with dementia, is forced to rely on her caretaker to tell her autobiography.

Closing out the season will be Edward Albee‘s At Home at the Zoo (April 22-May 16). This play combines Albee’s 1959 play, The Zoo Story, with a first act that tells the story of a book editor who escapes his monotonous marriage by retreating to a Central Park bench.
