THE 2018-2019 SEASON AT
PROSPECT THEATER PROJECT
By Steven Deitz
SEPTEMBER 14 – 30, 2018
Just when you thought you’d heard every crazy 9/11 conspiracy theory, a stranger walks into the Yankee Tavern. There, inside the walls of this crumbling New York tavern, a young couple finds themselves caught up in what might be the biggest conspiracy of all. Steven Dietz’s acclaimed and already widely produced dramatic thriller—a selection of the National New Play Network’s Continued Life Project—is a fierce, funny and ultimately mind- bending work of theatrical power that grips you until the final word. What you don’t know can hurt you.

WATCH ON THE RHINE
By Lillian Hellman
NOVEMBER 16 – DECEMBER 2, 2018
Told in compelling, human terms, the play is an eloquent and stirring tribute to the brave men and women who, despite all odds, struggled early on to stem the tide of fascism which was soon to spread throughout Europe and the world. A powerful and moving play by one of our most celebrated writers. A great success in both New York and London when first produced and when revived on Broadway.

A WALK IN THE WOODS
By Lee Blessing
JULY 19 – AUGUST 4, 2019
The place is a “pleasant woods on the outskirts of Geneva,” where two superpower arms negotiators, a Russian and an American, meet informally after long, frustrating hours at the bargaining table. An important, brilliantly executed and strikingly original play which brings deep perception and unexpected humor to its probing examination of the superpower negotiations on nuclear disarmament.
