Amidst the lively buzz of a scorching summer, love ignites, dreams soar, and secrets unravel. But beneath the surface lies a current of uncertainty, pushing this close-knit community to confront the challenges of being outsiders in their own neighborhood. From the pen of acclaimed Ghanaian American playwright Jocelyn Bioh (Goddess, School Girls; Or, The African Mean Girls Play) and directed by Obie winner Whitney White, Jaja’s African Hair Braiding is “a play that is equally affecting as it is hilarious,” hails Entertainment Weekly.

BASED ON THE NOVEL BY ALI BENJAMIN | ADAPTED FOR THE STAGE BY KEITH BUNIN | DIRECTED BY TYNE RAFAELI | IN ASSOCIATION WITH MADISON WELLS LIVE | WORLD PREMIERE | RODA THEATRE | JAN 31–MAR 9, 2025
During the last week of summer vacation, 12-year-old Suzy Swanson learns that her best friend Franny has drowned. Desperate to make sense of Franny’s death, Suzy immerses herself in her own imagination, where she can circumnavigate the globe, plunge into the terrifying depths of the ocean, explore the collapsed stars of the most distant galaxies, and perhaps even solve the mysteries of the universe. Adapted from the best-selling novel, The Thing About Jellyfish is a visually stunning and deeply emotional coming-of-age tale about love, loss, friendship, and the profound expansiveness of the human spirit.

When the distinguished elderly owner of a rural estate returns with a new, young wife, chaos erupts. Tensions run high, marriages reach their limits, confessions — and vodka — flow freely, and weapons are drawn. Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey, Paddington) plays Uncle Vanya in this heartbreaking comedy about the eternal battle between futility and change.

TECTONIC THEATER PROJECT’S
Here There Are Blueberries
BY MOISÉS KAUFMAN AND AMANDA GRONICH | CONCEIVED AND DIRECTED BY MOISÉS KAUFMAN | BY SPECIAL ARRANGEMENT WITH TECTONIC THEATER PROJECT, BRIAN & DAYNA LEE, AND SONIA FRIEDMAN PRODUCTIONS | RODA THEATRE | APR 5–MAY 11, 2025
In 2007, a mysterious album featuring Nazi-era photographs arrived at the desk of a U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum archivist. As curators unraveled the shocking truth behind the images, the album soon made headlines and ignited a debate that reverberated far beyond the museum walls. Based on real events, Here There Are Blueberries tells the story of these historical photographs — what they reveal about the perpetrators of the Holocaust, and our own humanity.

the aves
BY JIEHAE PARK | DIRECTED BY KNUD ADAMS | WORLD PREMIERE | PEET’S THEATRE | MAY 2–JUN 8, 2025
In the summer, an old man and an old woman sit on a park bench, talk about the birds, and bet on the rain…but things aren’t as simple as they may seem. With humor, surrealism, and tenderness, the singular imagination and innovative style of acclaimed playwright Jiehae Park turn the ordinary into the extraordinary as the seasons shift, meditating on themes of human connection, memory, and growing older.
