ATLANTA: Theatrical Outfit has announced their digital spring season, featuring three solo productions and two special events.
“I am thrilled with the response we have gotten for our digital programming so far, and am excited to share these exceptional plays with Atlanta audiences,” artistic director Matt Torney said in a statement. “When putting this season together, we challenged ourselves to look for plays that both engaged directly with the crucial questions of 2021, and also allowed our audience to escape into new worlds.”
The spring season will begin with Lauren Gunderson’s new play The Catastrophist, presented in partnership with Marin Theatre Company in Mill Valley, Calif. and Round House Theatre in Silver Spring, Md.. The Catastrophist follows a nonlinear journey of virologist Nathan Wolfe and his work tracking viral pandemics.
Next up will be A Hundred Words for Snow, written and directed by Tatty Hennessy. The play follows a 15-year-old girl attempting to scatter her father’s ashes at the North Pole.
Finally, Theatrical Outfit will present a livestream performance of Anna Deavere Smith’s Fires in the Mirror, which follows Jewish and Black community members reflecting on the Crown Heights riots. The show will stream live for nine performances, with limited in-person seating available.
Theatrical Outfit will also present a virtual wine tasting, TO Hearts ATL, later this month, and a virtual version of their annual gala, Our Luckie Stars.
