2020-21 VIRTUAL SEASON

Lights in the Dark

MESSAGE TO OUR PATRONS

2020 was a blaze of a year, and 2021 has barely arrived, but some things stay the same. Our world is in flux, and right now it’s not safe to gather together in the theater. And our world demands great stories now more than ever. 

 

At Iowa Stage Theatre Company, our work takes us from the classics to the cutting edge. This spring, we are featuring new writing from two new voices to our community, and one that may be more familiar. 

 

Tanya Barfield’s Bright Half Life looks at the relationship between two women over four and a half decades, from first love to marriage to kids to divorce and beyond. 

 

In The Agitators, Mat Smart explores the decades-long relationship between two titans of American civil rights, Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass. Their friendship, collaboration and falling out span some of the most important moments in our history.


And Ike Holter’s Exit Strategy is a passionate, bitingly funny look at the staff of a soon to be closed Chicago high school as they fight the system and each other to keep it open.

We’ll see you at the Virtual Theatre!
