Woyzeck inspired by Georg Buchner

Matt Hune and exciting young writer, Maurielle McGarvey have re-invented Büchner’s 19th century tragedy into a jaw-dropping thriller set in modern suburbia. Performances begin July 17 and continue through August 3 (see schedule).

Rec Room Arts’ 2018/19 season wraps up with the spellbinding adaptation of Georg Büchner’s Woyzeck. Artistic Director, Matt Hune and exciting young writer, Maurielle McGarvey have re-invented Büchner’s 19th century tragedy into a jaw-dropping thriller set in modern suburbia. Performances begin July 17 and continue through August 3 (see schedule).

Buchner’s achingly powerful tale—based on the real-life case of a mid-1800s German soldier who stabbed his girlfriend in a fit of jealousy—becomes an all-too familiar, yet disturbingly gruesome piece that spirals into the madness and messiness of isolation, technology, proximity, and identity. Rec Room Arts’ Woyzeck is part play, part dance, and part fever dream. This enticing new production is inundated with adolescent anxiety and lays bare the challenges of navigating first love. A summer production that can’t be missed.

THE ROYALE by Marco Ramirez


REGIONAL PREMIERE
Jay ‘The Sport’ Jackson dreams of being the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. But it’s 1905 and, in the racially segregated world of boxing, his chances are as good as knocked out. 

Winner of two Obie Awards, an Outer Critics Circle Award and a Drama Desk Award, The Royale is inspired by the real-life story of Jack Johnson from Galveston, a boxer who - at the height of the Jim Crow era - became the most famous and the most notorious black man on Earth.

Written by award-winning American writer Marco Ramirez (Sons of Anarchy, Orange is the New Black).


...a well constructed drama that captures both the beautiful frenzy of boxing and the (sadly still relevant) volatile state of race relations in America.

— THE TELEGRAPH

Rousing and resonant theatre-making.

— THE STAGE

[The Royale’s] lively manner of telling reanimates this breakthrough saga for a new generation.

Dear Charlotte


Written by Joy Gregory
Directed by guest artist Christopher Owens

“Jane Eyre,” “Wuthering Heights,” “Agnes Grey”— the novels that mid-19th-century London was mad about. But who were the writers? The book jackets said Acton Bell, Ellis Bell or Currer Bell, but these brilliant writers never showed themselves in London society. Perhaps because they were all pseudonyms of the Brontë sisters: Anne, Emily and Charlotte. While “incognito” could have been the title for their life stories, playwright Joy Gregory brings the brief but vivid time of this famous family to life with glittering theatricality. Their stories have moved generations — come see what moved them.

Additional Showtimes
November 2, 3, 5, 8, 9, 10 at 8 p.m.

EXIT STRATEGY by Ike Holter


REGIONAL PREMIERE 
From the award-winning writer of last season's SENDER, comes the no-holds-barred story of a Chicago public high school slated for closure at the end of the school year. The looming shut-down causes tensions in the school's already volcanic neighborhood to rise to the breaking point, but a small group of teachers launch a last minute battle to save their school. Over the course of the year, they put their careers, their futures, and their safety in the hands of a fast-talking administrator who comes on strong, but might actually have no clue what he's doing. This critically acclaimed play takes on the very topical issue of the rightful role of public schools vs charter schools.
