InterAct Theatre Company's curtains part to reveal thought-provoking new works that strive to foster social change through dynamic explorations of contemporary political and social issues. The 2012–13 season kicks off with The Exit Interview (October 19–November 11), which follows a recently fired Bertolt Brecht scholar in his final meeting with a university administrator. Exploring the various factors that potentially influence human fate, the show breaks the fourth wall and upends theater tropes with its Brechtian inventiveness, leavened with a dose of dark, absurdist comedy. Assassin (January 18–February 10) boxes audiences in with a quadriplegic former football pro as he verbally dukes it out with the player who ended his career in what was supposed to be a televised reconciliation.
The winner of the 2004 Barrymore Award for Outstanding New Play and InterAct Theatre's most successful production to date, Permanent Collection (April 5–April 28) returns to celebrate the company's 25th anniversary. Set in a venerable museum that mirrors Philadelphia's own Barnes Foundation, the play delves into the racial controversies that swirl around exhibit changes proposed by the newly hired African American executive director. Some Other Kind of Person (May 13–June 23) weaves together the stories of three different Americans as they attempt to navigate a series of murky ethical decisions during a visit to Cambodia, dealing with child prostitution, corrupt businessmen, and foreign adoption. All performances unfold within the intimate confines of The Adrienne's 106-seat main-stage venue.
InterAct Theatre Company's ticket prices vary throughout the week.
