Palm Beach Dramaworks in downtown West Palm Beach has announced its 2018-19 season, featuring five productions made up of three 21st-century works, a world premiere, a musical and two contemporary classics from the latter part of the 20th century.
The season starts with Paula Vogel’s “Indecent,” which runs Oct. 19 through Nov. 11. The play features music and explores the journey of Sholem Asch’s controversial drama “God of Vengeance.”
Up next will be the world premiere of “House on Fire,” opening Dec. 7 and running through Dec. 30. The play by Lyle Kessler is about how a father and his two sons’ lives are forever changed when two strangers appear.
The season continues with “The Spitfire Grill” which runs Feb. 1-24. The folk musical follows a young parolee who ventures to Gilead, Wis., to work at Hannah’s Spitfire Grill looking to get a fresh start.
August Wilson’s “Fences” follows, running March 29 through April 21. It is a drama about a former Negro League star working as a sanitation worker to support his family in Pittsburgh in the 1950s.
The season concludes with John Guare’s “The House of Blue Leaves” from May 17 to June 2, about an untalented songwriter hoping to receive a blessing from the Pope during his visit to New York City.
