Blake Hackler by Kim Leeson

This Friday our annual Applause Issue comes out, which as usual will include a list of arts companies’ seasons. But today — too late for our deadline — Second Thought Theatre announced its upcoming 14th season, which will include four area premieres (up from the typical three shows). The season includes:

Hillary and Clinton by Lucas Hnath (The Christians), set during the 2008 New Hampshire presidential primary. Jan. 10–Feb. 3.

Empathitrax by Ana Nogueira and directed by Carson McCain (The Great God Pan), a futuristic look at big pharma and what happens when a couple use a revolutionary new pill to get in touch with each others’ feelings. March 28–April 21.

Enemies/People, a world premiere by out playwright/director/actor Blake Hackler, whose last show was the amazing The Necessities. It’s a modern adaptation of Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People, with fracking replacing water contamination. June 13–July 7.

Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again. Alice Birch’s subversive new play about how language influences the female experience. Aug. 22–Sept. 15.

All performances take place at Bryant Hall, as usual. You can get season tickets here. And pick up Dallas Voice on Friday for out total Applause coverage.
