Death of a Salesman (October 24–November 10)
Willy Loman has always been a firm believer in the American Dream, both for himself and his children. But when Willy finds himself adrift and unemployed at 63, his failures mix with the unrealized hopes he's placed in his two sons to fuel family drama. This timeless play would earn Arthur Miller both the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Biggest Spoiler in a Show Title.
The Weir (January 23–February 9)
Over pints at an Irish pub, friends share supernatural stories in the hopes of impressing an attractive newcomer, Valorie. But when she shares her own melancholy story, Valorie's relationship with these men takes on an unexpected complexity.
The Servant of Two Masters (April 24–May 11)
In this classic Italian comedy, transposed from 18th-century Venice to modern day Colorado Springs, a servant named Truffaldino unwisely enters into the service of two bosses. Misunderstandings and mistaken identities abound as Truffaldino attempts to simultaneously meet the demands of these two employers while keeping his double duty a secret.
Murray Ross has been artistic director of Theatreworks almost since the company was founded in 1975. In his 30 years at the helm, he has adapted and written more than 100 works for the stage. His pen has carved out originals such as I am Nikola Tesla as well as adaptions of Huckleberry Finn and Plato's Symposium. These have all seen life at the Dusty Loo Bon Vivant Theater, an intimate venue that allows for dynamic, ever-changing stage configurations.
