York College Theatre Announces its 2009-2010 Season
FOUR Unbelievably Emotional Experiences.
FABULATION or THE RE-EDUCATION of UNDINE by Lynn Nottage
A madcap comedic fable set in present-day New York by the 2009 Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Lynn Nottage. FABULATION follows the super-successful Undine as her life unexpectedly disintegrates into a world of drugs, prison, and poverty, forcing her to confront the most terrifying person she knows: Herself!
October 23, 24, 25 and 27
OUR TOWN by Thornton Wilder
An archetypal small town is the scene for Wilder’s exploration of family, love, marriage and life’s deepest meaning. A true American classic, OUR TOWN brims with humor, drama and insight into the human condition.
December 4, 5, 6, 8, 11 and 12
YO SOY LATINA by Linda Nieves Powell
Six “Latina” women of differing backgrounds meet in a classroom that becomes a forum for their life experiences, fears and dreams. This moving comedy/drama features a fascinating and diverse ensemble of Latinas and challenges perceptions of homogenization and cultural stereotypes.
March 19, 20, 21, 23 and 25
Immediately following the performance on March 25, please join us, the playwright Linda Nieves-Powell, and a panel of other Latina artists for a talk back. Light refreshments will be served.
THE TEMPEST by William Shakespeare
Shakespeare’s enduring fantasy takes us to a mysterious island where things are seldom what they seem. Lost in this magical realm, shipwrecked survivors search for love, riches and truth. Joyful, comic and dramatic by turns, The Tempest is our first fully-staged Shakespearean play.
April 30, May 1, 2, 4, 7 and 8
