The summer season, featuring 6 plays in repertory, is slated for July 2021.

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va.: The Contemporary American Theater Festival (CATF) has announced that its 2020 summer season, plus the company’s 30th anniversary celebrations, will be pushed back to July 2021 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

CATF plans to produce the 2020 season lineup next summer, featuring works by Terence Anthony, Kevin Artigue, Chisa Hutchinson, Jacqueline Goldfinger, Victor Lesniewski, and Caridad Svich. Full-time contracts for the 2020 season will be honored.

 “Now more than ever we must continue to support all the artists and arts organizations that consistently fill our lives with truth and beauty, wonder and joy,” said artistic director Ed Herendeen in a statement. “We need to embrace and nurture our artists. We need them to help us make sense of our turbulent world. We need our artists and they need us. Thank you for believing in the Contemporary American Theater Festival.”
