New Season at Kirk Douglas Theatre Will Include David Mamet's "Race"

The Center Theatre Group (and artistic director Michael Richie) have announced the line-up for the 2014-2015 season at the Kirk Douglas Theatre in Culver City. The new season, which begins July 13, 2014, and runs through August 9, 2015, will include:

  • David Mamet’s explosive Race
  • The Goodman Theatre’s world premiere production of Rebecca Gilman’s Luna Gale
  • A ‘remix’ of Culture Clash’s popular Chavez Ravine
  • Todd Almond’s and Matthew Sweet’s musical, Girlfriend
  • The world premiere of Forever by Dael Orlandersmith
  • Lucy Alibar’s work in progress Throw Me on the Burnpile and Light Me Up
  • The U.S. premiere of Gob Squad’s Western Society
  • World premiere production of Jessica Blank and Eric Jensen’s How to be a Rock Critic
  • Facing Our Truth: Ten-Minute Plays on Trayvon, Race and Privilege
  • CTG’s Los Angeles Company partnership presentation of the 24th Street Theatre’s Walking the Tightrope

Here's how the Center Theatre Group describes Mamet's Race: "Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Mamet tackles America’s most controversial subject in his provocative tale of sex, guilt and bold accusations. In Race, two lawyers find themselves defending a wealthy white executive charged with sexually assaulting a black woman. When a new legal assistant gets involved in the case, the opinions that boil beneath explode to the surface." The show opens September and continues through September 28, with previews beginning August 31.

“The season continues with the Goodman Theatre’s world premiere production of Rebecca Gilman’s smart and absorbing ‘Luna Gale,’” said Ritchie (via press release). “L.A.’s very own Culture Clash will bring to the Douglas a new version of their popular Chavez Ravine, followed by Matt Almond and Matthew Sweet’s charmer of a musical Girlfriend.”
Continues Ritchie: “Dael Orlandersmith returns to us with the world premiere of her startling show Forever, and we welcome the engaging voice of Lucy Alibar with her work in progress Throw Me on the Burnpile and Light Me Up." First up, in July will be a chance to reflect on the Trayvon Martin case with Facing Our Truth: Ten-Minute Plays on Trayvon, Race and Privilege.
