Thursday, 17. June 2021 17:11

Washington, DC, June 17, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mosaic Theater Company of DC will return to in-person production at H Street’s Atlas Performing Arts Center with six new plays in its seventh season, while continuing to provide streaming options for those who cannot attend live shows. To see the COVID policies put in place by the Atlas Performing Arts Center, visit https://mosaictheater.org/covid.

“This season of new work is emblematic of Mosaic: a group of culturally eclectic artists exploring expansive questions about lineage, cycles of consequence, and the moments when pivotal relationships shift.” Said the Core Season Planning Team, who collaboratively curated the season, “these six plays couldn’t be more relevant in their self-reflection, their daring emotionality, and their varied aesthetics; and, we hope they can be a vehicle for connection and healing as we re-enter the theater space after so many months of dark stages.”

Dates and details on the 2021-2022 season can be found below:

  • My Father, My Martyr, and Me, written and performed by Fargo Tbakhi
    September 10 - October 3, 2021, Directed by Danielle A. Drakes

This electric and groundbreaking solo show-in-poetry weaves the autobiographies of the playwright, his father, and RFK assassin Sirhan Sirhan to examine the criminality often automatically layered onto Palestinians, and ultimately begs the question: in the face of decades of colonization, erasure, and fear, how can we love each other better? https://mosaictheater.org/my-father

  • Birds of North America, written by Anna Ouyang Moench
    October 27 - November 21, 2021, Directed by Serge Seiden

Caitlyn and her father John watch birds in their suburban Maryland backyard.

  • Dear Mapel, written and performed by Psalmayene 24
    January 19 - February 13, 2022, Directed by Natsu Onoda Power, featuring music by Jabari Exum (World Premiere)

Told with distinctive heart, musicality, and humor, Mosaic’s Andrew W.

  • Private by Mona Pirnot
    March 23 - April 17, 2022 (World Premiere), Directed by Knud Adams

In this explosive and comedic drama, Georgia’s husband, Corbin, has been offered his dream job. But there’s a catch. In an all-too-near future where privacy is a commodity, one married couple grapples with which secrets they’re willing to reveal— especially to each other. https://mosaictheater.org/private

  • Marys Seacole by Jackie Sibblies Drury
    May 4 - May 29, 2022, Directed by Eric Ruffin

A “dazzling hall of mirrors” (New York Times) told with a furiously singular vision by Pulitzer Prize winner Jackie Sibblies Drury, this play, based in part on the autobiography of Mary Seacole, charts one woman’s extraordinary journey through space and time: from mid-1800s Jamaica, to the frontlines of the Crimean War, to a modern-day nursing home.

  • In His Hands, by Benjamin Benne
    June 22 - July 16, 2022 (World Premiere) 

Daniel, a video game wizard and aspiring Lutheran pastor, is falling for Christian. But as these men explore the potential of their new relationship, voices from Christian's past threaten to overpower the connection they share. A radically contemporary, queer rom-com that asks provocative questions about faith and desire, with a gentle and lyrical voice. https://mosaictheater.org/in-his-hands
