SEASON 2

(2023-2024)

Mainstage

Taking Care of Animals

By Jerrod Jordahl
Directed by Alex Hurt

November 16 - December 10 2023

On a farm in Iowa, a winter storm rages with no end in sight.

 

Trapped indoors, the landowner and his two employees engage in a power struggle while the landowner’s daughter navigates the chaos and vies for agency. 21ten Theatre is proud to present the world premiere of Taking Care of Animals, a darkly comic, riveting new work by New York playwright Jerrod Jordahl.

A Number

By Caryl Churchill
Directed by Mike O’Connell

January 11 - February 4, 2024

Imagine discovering that you’re not the only version of yourself. 

When Bernard learns that he is one of a number of clones, he confronts his father, who completed the experiment in an attempt at atoning for parental regrets. But in Caryl Churchill’s modern masterpiece, the implications of the experiment are greater than any can anticipate, and as the mystery deepens, so too do the ethical uncertainties.

Uncle Vanya

By Anton Chekhov 

Adapted from a translation by Stepan Simek

Directed by Chris Conner

May 2 - 26, 2024

During a smoldering summer on a Russian estate in the late 19th century, Vanya and his niece Sonya toil away, working. When the estate’s owner returns with a much-younger wife and the intention to sell, an undercurrent of emotion is brought to the surface. Chekhov’s iconic meditation on wasted purpose and unrequited love comes to life this Spring in a bold new production.

BareBones

52 Pick-Up

By TJ Dawe and Rita Bozi
Directed by Gavin Hoffman

August 25 - September 10, 2023

A deck of cards is tossed into the air, each one inscribed with the title of a scene. Wherever they land determines how the story unfolds.

 

52 Pick-Up tells the messy, passionate story of a relationship—all shuffled up in a randomized order. A rollercoaster romance that changes with every performance where very show is a new an unique telling. 

Here We Are Again Still

By Christian O'Reilly

September 23 - 30, 2023

BareBones Production's first foray into this stripped down style of theatre. The show Here We Are Again Still happens with a bench and three actors.

Here We Are Again Still is a funny and touching story about three stuck people who - as they get to know each other via a park bench - begin to get unstuck.

Adopt A Sailor

By Charles Evered
Directed by Chris Harder

March 15 - March 24, 2024

When a sophisticated New York City couple adopt a young sailor from Arkansas for a day during fleet week, their heartfelt values collide and reveal just how much we truly have in common. 

Sunday Reading Series

Once a month, 21ten Theatre presents a reading of a new play by an Oregon-based playwright. Minimally rehearsed and volunteer operated, the readings are a chance for playwrights to hear their work brought to life, for actors to get to practice their craft in a low commitment, fun setting, and for the community at large to experience an exciting new story.
