TampaRep Announces 8th Season, Three Productions

Tampa Repertory Theatre will kick off its 8th full season in September with three modern productions: Heisenberg, Copenhagen and Stupid F**king Bird. Known for presenting classics, known and unknown, with a special emphasis on American plays of the 20th and 21st centuries, Tampa Rep describes their productions as innovative, provocative and classic. All season performances will be held at the HCC-Ybor Studio Theatre or at USF’s Studio 120. 

Heisenberg

September 5-23, 2018
by Simon Stephens
Directed by C. David Frankel
HCC-Ybor Studio Theatre

Starring Emilia Sargent (Theatre Tampa Bay Awards winner, Outstanding Lead Actress, for TampaRep’s Grounded) and Michael Mahoney (Theatre Tampa Bay Awards winner, Outstanding Lead Actor, for TampaRep’s The Iceman Cometh)

From a chance encounter in a London Railway station, a 42-year-old woman and a 75-year-old butcher cross the Atlantic to search for the woman’s missing son. The New York Times called Heisenberg a “satisfyingly sentimental, life-affirming mating dance between two people who are so utterly dissimilar that of course they are made for each other,” and also “a probing work that considers the multiplicity of alternatives that could shape our lives at every moment.”

Copenhagen

by Michael Frayn 
January 10-27, 2019
Directed by Emilia Sargent
Studio 120 on the University of South Florida campus

The ghosts of physicists Werner Heisenberg and Niels Bohr, and Bohr’s wife Margrethe, attempt to answer the question “Why did Heisenberg come to Copenhagen?” The New York Times called Copenhagen “the most invigorating and ingenious play of ideas in many a year and a work of art that humanizes physics in a way no other has done,” and called Copenhagen’s ghosts “a restless lot, filled with a crackling, questing vitality rarely found even among the living.”

Stupid F**king Bird

by Aaron Posner, sort of adapted from The Seagull by Anton Chekhov 
May 30-June 16, 2019
Directed by Connie LaMarca-Frankel and C. David Frankel
Studio 120 on the University of South Florida campus

Chekhov’s classic satirically spun in a modern setting. “Mr. Posner’s play is at its most trenchant and funny when it doesn’t just collapse the distance between Chekhov and today, but also encourages us to forget Chekhov entirely,” wrote The New York Times. “Eventually, we see the play and its characters with no filter whatsoever, so that their rubbed-raw hearts and egos more immediately, more uncomfortably mirror our own.”
