TRACY LETTS PLAYS LIKE YOU’VE NEVER SEEN THEM BEFORE
As we prepare for our return to the stage, we are excited to share three new virtual projects for the 2021/22 season written by ensemble member Tracy Letts. These gripping pieces create the opening landscape of this season and will mark a bridge between where we have been and where we are going. Our virtual stage is a celebration of the profound connection that theatre—in whatever form it finds itself—offers us all.

NIGHT SAFARI
A monologue filmed in a studio location
Written by ensemble member Tracy Letts
Directed by Patrick Zakem
Featuring Rainn Wilson
Run time: 14 minutes

The nocturnal habits of the Panamanian Night Monkey, the life cycle of the Paradoxical Frog, and the mating rituals of middle-aged male homo sapiens. This wry monologue poses the question: are we so distant from the whims of our biology? Enjoy your tour, and please remember—do not feed the animals.

THE OLD COUNTRY
A filmed vignette, inhabited by puppets
Written by ensemble member Tracy Letts
Directed by Patrick Zakem
Featuring ensemble members William Petersen and Karen Rodriguez with Mike Nussbaum
Run time: 10 minutes

Two men in a diner drain the last drops of their coffees and think about ordering dessert. In the denouement of their (physical, intellectual, and sexual) lives, they wax nostalgic and try to communicate across a wide divide.

THE STRETCH
A monologue filmed in a studio location
Written by ensemble member Tracy Letts
Directed by ensemble member Anna D. Shapiro
Featuring ensemble member Tracy Letts
Run time: 8 minutes

And they’re off, for the 108th running of the El Dorado Stakes! But this race is long-distance… and maybe not what it first seems…
