The Guthrie Theater has announced shows for its studio space in the 2013-14 season, the first season under studio programming director Lauren Ignaut.
It kicks off with Kyle Loven’s “Moon Show 143,” a work about global lunar myths, directed by Nick Hubbard (Sept. 14-18, 2013).
Sun Mee Chomet’s “How to Be a Korean Woman,” a one-person show about a Korean adoptee’s search for her birth mother that sold out its premiere last year at Dreamland Arts in St. Paul, will be directed by Zaraawar Mistry. Chomet also has been invited to perform the show in Europe and Asia (Sept. 19-22).
Guthrie director Joe Dowling, for whom the studio is named, will stage the premiere of David Goldstein’s “Skiing on Broken Glass,” a play about “a lonely writer and a mysterious young male escort who find themselves in an unlikely relationship (Oct. 29-Nov. 17).
The Guthrie will produce Mark St. Germain’s “Freud’s Last Session,” a meeting of the minds of Freud and C.S. Lewis on theological issues (Feb. 25-March 16, 2014).
Playwright, producer and director Carlyle Brown will stage “Abe Lincoln and Uncle Tom in the White House,” an imaginative work about a visit to Abe Lincoln by the title character of Harriet Beecher Stowe’s novel, “Uncle Tom’s Cabin”(March 21-April 6, 2014).
