Welcome to our 20th Anniversary Season!
Whether you’re a longtime Vermont Stage Company subscriber or you’re visiting this site for the first time – Welcome to the celebration!
It’s our 20th Anniversary as Burlington’s premier professional theatre company and we plan to make the most of this milestone year.
We’re kicking off the season with ‘Art’ by God of Carnage playwright Yasmina Reza. We produced this comedy about art and friendship in 2001 and decided to bring it back as a tip of the hat to our past. Our 2013 production has a new director, designers, and cast, making this a fresh and exciting interpretation of the original.
The New Year begins with a bang with Other Desert Cities by Jon Robin Baitz, a 2012 finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for drama. This smart, beautifully-written, play about a family struggling to keep its long-held secrets is simultaneously heart-wrenching and hilarious.
We’ll be warming March up with David Ives’ sizzling Venus in Fur. This mesmerizing comedy was hailed by The New York Times as “90 minutes of good, kinky fun” and explores the ways lust and literature can be used as weapons in the ultimate battle of the sexes.
In April, our regular season culminates in an exclusive World Premiere!
The Quarry is written by acclaimed emerging playwright Greg Pierce in collaboration with his brother Randal Pierce, a local musician and composer. This new play, inspired by their experiences growing up here in Shelburne, Vermont, combines original live music with an array of characters to create a world that explores the mystifying depths of the unknown.
We hope you will join us as a subscriber. This landmark season will be one for the history books.
