The future is looking bright in Springfield! A brand-new hot springs spa is about to open its doors. Hotels and shops are booming in anticipation of a blockbuster tourist season. The spa’s visionary chief medical officer, Dr. Thomas Stockman, is being hailed as a local hero for turning the humdrum town into a must-see destination...until he discovers the springs are toxic and insists on doing the “right thing.” Inconvenient truths fight alternative facts, minority rights battle majority rule, and individual conscience clashes with economic interest in this powerful reinvention of Ibsen’s masterpiece.
"Ibsen's 1882 play . . . is suddenly as timely as a tweet." NEW YORK TIMES
"[An Enemy of the People] will quite possibly leave you not only thinking about yourself, but questioning your independence of thought." TIMEOUT

WINNER OF THE OBIE AWARD FOR BEST NEW AMERICAN PLAY
directed by Joe Wilson, Jr. (Jan 27 - Feb 20)
Judge Peyton is dead and his plantation, Terrebonne, is in financial ruins. Peyton’s handsome nephew George arrives as heir apparent and quickly falls in love with Zoe, a beautiful, one-eighth black “octoroon.” But the evil overseer, M’Closky, has other plans for both Terrebonne and Zoe. From the author of Gloria (Gamm 2018) and Appropriate, this raucous, irreverent retelling of a hit 19th-century melodrama is “this decade’s most eloquent statement on race in America today.” (New York Times)
“It’s bold, fearless playwriting: laughing in the face of racism as well as allowing the horror of history to spell itself out.” TIME OUT (London)
“[An Octoroon] insists that making theater can be the best way to talk back to history.”
“Bizarrely brilliant. An extraordinary play that defies categorisation.” THE GUARDIAN

At a bus stop in a run-down New Jersey town, Darja, a Polish immigrant who gets by on a cleaning job, pragmatism, and sheer will is done talking about feelings. It’s time to talk money. Over the course of 22 years and three relationships, Darja negotiates for her future with men who can offer her love or security, but never both. Award-winning playwright Martyna Majok’s Ironbound is a darkly funny, heartbreaking portrait of a tough woman for whom love is a luxury — and a liability — and survival is the only measure of success.
“You seldom see plays that are both harsh and wonderful…The play never sugarcoats, yet it steers clear of bleakness because Majok’s language is so entertainingly alive.” WASHINGTON POST
“Intriguing. . . . The play, like life, isn’t about easy answers." NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
directed by Fred Sullivan, Jr. (May 5 - 29)
Four young lovers flee the restraints of home for the refuge of the woods, only to find themselves in a world of increasingly magical turmoil. The fairy king and queen are feuding, a band of wannabe actors are rehearsing for their unlikely shot at the big stage, and chief mischief maker Puck is doing all he can to ensure that the course of love is anything but smooth. Don’t miss our first-ever staging of Shakespeare’s most popular comedy — a fantastical, evergreen tale about how quickly our world can turn upside down and how ingenuity, love, and art can set it right again.
“Shakespeare…always feels like coming home for The Gamm." MOTIF
“The Gamm has proved…that Shakespeare runs in this company’s blood."
