2015 Summer Season

NCT's 25th Anniversary Season!



June 18-27

NCT opens its twenty-fifth season with new comedy, by a Pulitzer Prize nominee, that critics hail as one of Rebeck’s best works with big laughs. Four young and aspiring novelists with high hopes for fame sign up for private writing lessons with Leonard – a best-selling author and international literary figure.  His unorthodox instruction and shockingly honest assessment gives them the schooling of their lives. The New Yorker calls SEMINAR “Slick and satisfying.” We call SEMINAR the perfect opener in our 25th Anniversary season.


The work of one of America’s finest and most provocative dramatists spanned thirty years. Lillian Hellman’s life was filled with sex and scandal.  She lived her life on her own terms – apologetic to no one. THE LITTLE FOXES, perhaps her most produced work, is also steeped in sex and scandal. Set in the deep south at the dawn of the 20th century, the ruthless, moneyed Hubbard family live by the “all is fair in love and war” credo. Penned in 1939, the events in Hellman’s work unfold with the stark inevitability of a Greek tragedy.

Rebecca Gilman is one of the most sought after playwrights writing today. She creates engaging and timely stories, captivating audiences and taking them to new and unexpected places. The author of the acclaimed drama SPINNING INTO BUTTER, Ms. Gilman’s newest play concerns Caroline, an overworked social worker who thinks she has a typical case on her hands when assigned two teenaged drug addict parents accused of neglecting their baby. LUNA GALE is powerful story of faith and forgiveness that is called “Smart and absorbing,” by the New York Times.

  Ben Brantley of the New York Times hails Anne Washburn’s new play,  “Downright brilliant! When was the last time you met a new play that was so smart it made your head spin?”  In a post-apocalyptic world a group of strangers pass the time attempting to retell the infamous CAPE FEARE episode from THE SIMPSONS. Flash forward seven years to a theatre company doing the same thing. Flash forward 75 years to a story told with Homer and Marge as a pop culture inspiration for a new kind of theatre – where one mythology evolves into another. Join us for a play unlike anything you have ever seen – “scary, sweet and funny.” (Time Magazine).
