Remy Bumppo’s 2019-2020 Season

For our 23rd season, we will present three plays ranging from a world premiere adaptation of a beloved literary classic, a new production of a groundbreaking modern classic about female empowerment, all the way to a Chicago premiere of a new play about the relationship between two iconic Americans.

HOWARDS END

by Douglas Post, from the novel by E.M. Forster

Directed by Nick Sandys   |   August 29 – October 5, 2019
Featuring Core Ensemble Member Eliza Stoughton

Adapted for the stage by Chicago playwright Douglas Post, this world premiere of the beloved novel will tell the story of three very different families whose lives intertwine at the dawn of a fast-changing 20th century.

TOP GIRLS

by Caryl Churchill

Directed by Keira Fromm   |   January 16 – February 22, 2020
Featuring Core Ensemble Members Annabel Armour and Linda Gillum

Whip-smart, cracklingly funny, and ultimately deeply moving, TOP GIRLS returns to the Remy Bumppo stage in a new revival. Caryl Churchill’s groundbreaker brilliantly debates questions about gender conformity and the balancing act of career and family.

THE AGITATORS

by Mat Smart

April 30 – June 6, 2020
Featuring Core Ensemble Member Eliza Stoughton and guest artist and Steppenwolf Ensemble member James Vincent Meredith.
