The Human Race Theatre Company Announces its 33rd Season: A Season of Women!

HRTC_new logoWOMEN OF INFLUENCE: THEIR POWER, PASSION AND PITFALLS

“This may be the first time in our 33 years,” stated Human Race Artistic Director and Founding Member Kevin Moore, “that we selected a season theme before we selected our shows.” And for good reason. The 2019-20 Human Race Theatre season at the Loft Theatre coincides with the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, the first step in all women having the right to vote and the catalyst for our movements for Equality.

“In celebration of this monumental year,” continued Moore, “The Human Race titled its new seasonWomen of Influence: Their Power, Passion and Pitfalls.  The season showcases unique women’s stories and plentiful, strong female characters – both factual and fictional.  It also features some of the country’s outstanding women playwrights.”

“Throughout this remarkable season, I am especially thrilled about all the opportunities it presents to further our engagement with our audience and collaborate with many old and new community partners,” said Executive Director Kappy Kilburn.

The Human Race kicks off the season in September with Lady Day At Emerson’s Bar & Grill by Lanie Robertson. In 1959, Billie Holiday, or “Lady Day” as she was called, performed one of her final shows in a run-down bar in South Philly.  In Robertson’s award-winning play, Holiday engages the audience with salty, often humorous reminiscences of her troubled life as a travelling performer in a segregated south.  With the help of her piano man, Jimmy Powers, she lets music tell her story, sharing soulful, heart-wrenching and bawdy songs from her memorable canon including: “Strange Fruit,” “God Bless the Child,” “When a Woman Loves a Man,” and “Taint Nobody’s Business If I Do.”

November brings us The Cake, a new comedy by Bekah Brunstetter, the Supervising Producer and Writer of the hit NBC show This Is Us. Della makes cakes, not judgment calls — those she leaves to her husband, Tim. Besides, she was just selected as a contestant on The Great American Bake-Off, so she has her hands full.  But when her best friend’s daughter comes home to North Carolina to get married, Della’s life gets turned upside down when she realizes there’s not just one bride, but two. She can’t really make a cake for such a wedding, can she? For the first time in her life Della has to think for herself, forcing her to re-examine some of her deeply-held beliefs, as well as her own marriage.

Our March 2020 production celebrates Ohio-born journalist, social political activist and nationally recognized leader of the American feminist movement, Gloria Steinem, with the play by Emily Mann,Gloria: A Life, which recently ran Off-Broadway. Fifty years after Gloria Steinem began raising her voice for equality and advocating for others, her vision is as urgent as ever.   This richly detailed tapestry is about one of the most inspiring and remarkable women of our time.  Gloria’s life’s work and belief in the necessity of conversation as a catalyst for change offers us all a path forward in a way that only live theater can provide.

In the spring, playwright Lauren Gunderson brings us Sex in the City circa 1793 Paris with The Revolutionists. Four beautiful, badass women lose their heads in this irreverent, girl-powered comedy set during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. Playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen (and big fan of ribbons) Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle all are committed to finding Equality for Women while trying to figure out what it means for a woman to be “revolutionary.” This grand and zany comedy is about violence and legacy, art and activism, feminism and terrorism, compatriots and chosen sisters, and how we actually go about changing the world without losing our heads.

In June we are Hollywood-bound with Matthew Lombardo’s comedy Looped, based on a real event that has been the subject of gossip for years – featuring the outspoken film legend, Tallulah Bankhead. Loopedtakes place in the summer of 1965, and the film legend shows up to redub – or loop – one line of dialogue for her last movie, Die! Die! My Darling!!  It should have taken 8 minutes, but an inebriated Tallulah, well known for her husky voice, outrageous personality and devastating wit,needed eight hours.  Why?  Find out as Bankhead’s outsized personality dominates the young, frustrated film editor who is “knocked for a loop” by the tempestuous stage and screen icon.

This five-show Loft season will be The Human Race’s 33rd season of professional theatre in the Miami Valley.

A Comedic Love Triangle Between a Husband, His Wife and His Furry Friend, SYLVIA!

HRTC_Sylvia3

The Human Race continues its 32nd Season with A. R. Gurney’s Sylvia, April. 25 – May 12, 2019 at the Loft Theatre

“Sylvia was first produced by The Human Race in our 10th season,” said Artistic Director Kevin Moore.  “And it has now been four years since the Broadway production.  And what is clear is our relationship with our pets does not change.  It is a commitment that we take very seriously.  And is why we can find so much humor in it still.”

(Dayton, OH) —Middle-aged Greg brings home a dog he found–or rather, one that found him­–in the park. With no other identification other than “Sylvia” on her nametag, she’s a street-smart mutt with a mind of her own and no shortage of opinions. Sylvia quickly becomes a major bone of contention between Greg and his wife, Kate. To him, she’s a welcome escape from an unhappy job and a loss of purpose. To Kate, Sylvia’s a slobbering, hairy rival for her husband’s affection. This ingenious take on a twisted love triangle leads to plenty of laughs and revelations on love and marriage… and a dog.

Sylvia is rated PG-15. Parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under the age of 15.

Sylvia will be Marya Spring Cordes’ (Director) 4th show she has directed at HRTC. Marya’slast show at the Loft was Neil Simon’s semi-biographical comedy, Brighton Beach Memoirs.

Jump on the Next Runaway Train and Join Phileas Fogg on his Adventure AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS

The Human Race continues its 32nd Season with Mark Brown’s Around the World in 80 Days, adapted from the novel by Jules Verne, Feb. 28 – March 17, 2019 at the Loft Theatre.

“80 DAYS is one of the funniest evenings of theatre I’ve ever worked on.” Says director, Joe Deer. “This cast is an absolutely delightful and incredibly versatile group of actors from across the country who are making the perfect antidote to the Winter Blues. The show is a hybrid adventure story/romance/buddy film/travelogue in the spirit of Monty Python, Gilbert and Sullivan and Indiana Jones – a farcical romp in every way. As a guy who spends his time directing a lot of comedies, I am certain this will be one of the best audiences Dayton will ever see.”

30 characters, 5 actors, and a whirlwind of costumes, hats and luggage!

HRTC_Around the World in 80 Days promo1

(Dayton, OH) —Jules Verne’s classic tale springs to life in this clever, fast-paced comedy for the whole family. Proper gentleman Phileas Fogg strikes a wager and sets off on a race that puts his fortune and life at risk. With his faithful servant at his side, he has just 80 days to circle the globe–an inconceivable feat in the year 1872! Fierce natives, furious typhoons, runaway trains, a damsel in distress and a dogged detective threaten to delay him at every step in this delightful, whirlwind odyssey that will keep you on the edge of your seat from beginning to unexpected end.

“Our biggest challenge,” said Human Race Artistic Director Kevin Moore, “is convincing people that the hot air balloon does not exist in the actual book.  While it made for exciting cinematography in Mike Todd’s 1956 film version, it is not part of the Jules Verne novel. However, audiences will experience typhoons, angry natives, a runaway train – and an elephant. And in the intimate Loft, it may feel like a ride at Disney!”

It’s an adventure for the entire family! “High-spirited, fast-moving and flat-out hilarious!” –Orlando Weekly

Around the World in 80 Days will be Joe Deer’s (Director) 12th show he has directed at HRTC. Deer’s last show at the Loft was the comedic musical about six unemployed steelworkers turned strippers, The Full Monty.
