ANNOUNCING KNOW THEATRE’S 2021-2022 SEASON
OCT. 8-24: ‘GIDION’S KNOT’ by Johnna Adams
Over the course of a parent/teacher conference, a grieving mother and an emotionally overwhelmed primary school teacher talk about the mother’s son, Gidion. He may have been bullied severely – or he may have been an abuser. As his story is uncovered, the women come to terms with their feelings of culpability. Starring Qiana Watson and Shirley Goodman.
FEB. 11-27: ‘BODY AWARENESS’ by Annie Baker
It’s Body Awareness Week on a Vermont college campus and Phyllis, the organizer, and her partner, Joyce, are hosting one of the guest artists in their home: Frank, a photographer famous for his female nude portraits. Both his presence in the home and his chosen subject instigate tension from the start. Phyllis is furious at his depictions, but Joyce is actually rather intrigued by the whole thing, even going so far as to contemplate posing for him. As Joyce and Phyllis bicker, Joyce’s adult son, who may or may not have Asperger syndrome, struggles to express himself physically – with heartbreaking results.
APRIL 8-24: ‘METEOR SHOWER’ by Steve Martin
Corky and Norm are excited to host Gerald and Laura at their home in the valley outside Los Angeles to watch a once-in-a-lifetime meteor shower. But as the stars come out and the conversation gets rolling, it becomes clear that Gerald and Laura might not be all that they appear to be. Over the course of a crazy, starlit dinner party, the wildly unexpected occurs. The couples begin to flirt and insanity reigns. Martin, using his trademark absurdist humor, bends the fluid nature of time and reality to create a surprising and unforgettably funny new play.
JUNE 10-26: ‘HOW I LEARNED TO DRIVE’ by Paula Vogel
A wildly funny, surprising and devastating tale of survival as seen through the lens of a troubled relationship between a young girl and an older man. “How I Learned to Drive” is the story of a woman who learns the rules of the road and life from behind the wheel.
