2015 - 2016 Season

Walking Shadow's eleventh season features one world premiere and three regional premieres, plays from local writers John Heimbuch and Carson Kreitzer, and collaborations with our friends at Mixed Blood Theatre and Workhaus Collective. Journey with us through magic and war, chill out in small-town Vermont, witness adventures in comic books and in the bedroom, and celebrate a revelation from the pulpit.

December 4 - 30, 2015 at Red Eye Theater

In the dark midwinter, shadowed by the Great War, a changeling boy appears from the fairy realm. Soon the village's mortals are swept up in the wake of a magical rivalry, while Puck makes mischief with a band of holiday players. But when an arcane power is tapped, it takes everyone to pull the world back together. An enchanting Yuletide revel in the spirit of A Midsummer Night's Dream.


Aliens 250x250THE ALIENS

by Annie Baker
directed by John Heimbuch

February 12 - 27, 2016 at Red Eye Theater

"The state of just having lost something is like the most enlightened state in the world."

Jasper & KJ spend their days behind the coffee shop, writing songs and planning novels. The young barista Evan needs them gone. But when the duo begin to initiate him in the ways of tea, music, and Bukowski, their uncomfortable friendship blossoms into an unlikely transcendence. Written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Annie Baker.


Lasso 250x250LASSO OF TRUTH

by Carson Kreitzer
directed by Leah Cooper

Produced by Workhaus Collective
in association with Walking Shadow

April 15 - May 1, 2016 at the Playwrights' Center

Who is Wonder Woman and where did she come from? Lasso of Truth explores the knotty origin story of our preeminent female superhero, created by William Marston, inventor of the first lie-detector machine. This smart, seductive, wild ride features the two women Marston lived with in a polyamorous relationship - both of whom inspired the famous character - plus a girl in search of answers about her childhood heroine, and a guy trying to hold on to his prized first issue.


Christians 250x250THE CHRISTIANS

by Lucas Hnath
directed by Amy Rummenie

in association with Mixed Blood Theatre

May 20 - June 11, 2016 at Mixed Blood Theatre

Twenty years ago, this church was just a modest storefront. Now our congregation of thousands gathers to share faith and hear a monumental announcement from Pastor Paul. This will be a day of celebration...

But what Pastor Paul has to say changes everything, shaking the foundation of his church, community, and home. A rousing play about belief and change, with a hopeful message for believers and non-believers alike, using the dramatic structure of a live sermon, complete with praise choir!
