IRT's 2011/2012 includes 'Dracula,' 'God of Carnage,' and more

What's on tap for 2011/2012 at the Indiana Repertory Theatre?

First, an a-bit-too-early-for-Halloween production of "Dracula." There are a number of stage versions of the classic out there (Bela Lugosi starred on stage as the count before committing his performance on film). This one was penned by Steven Dietz, familiar to local audiences from the IRT's recent "Becky's New Car" and "Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure" and the Phoenix's "Yankee Tavern." No word yet, but I'm guessing opening night might be a good place for a Red Cross blood drive.

Next, moving from its usual winter slot, will be the latest trio of "Going Solo" one-actor plays. Titles haven't been announced, but one will come from the pen of IRT playwright-in-residence James Still.

A near-guaranteed hit with those who book school groups, "Julius Caesar" is next (although not part of the subscription season). For those who enjoy comparing and contrasting, note that this will be the second local professional "Caesar," with Heartland Actors Repertory Theatre staging its own this summer in White River State Park. The IRT's, though, will be a compact 90 minutes.

Of course, "A Christmas Carol" returns in November and December. After that comes August Wilson's final play, "Radio Golf," the completion of his cycle of plays each set in a different decade of the 20th century. After that, the IRT offers Noel Coward's "Fallen Angels."

Then comes one of the hottest plays on the regional theater circuit, Yasmina Reza's popular "God of Carnage" (the Chicago production recently was extended). The Tony-winning Best Play opens in late February. Then the season wraps with William Gibson's "The Miracle Worker."

Your thoughts?

  • Interesting season
    I'm especially looking forward to God of Carnage. I read the NY Times review last year and their followup stories. It sounds like a fascinating play.

My name is Mr Henry Josh and i live in the USA California and life is worth living right now for me and my family and all this is because of one man sent by GOD to help me and my family, i once had a life filled with sorrow because my first SON needed a kidney transplant and all our savings were going towards his medications and this normally leaves us with no money to pay our bills or even put enough food on our table and our rent was due and no funds to pay these bills and life felt so unfair to me and every night my wife will cry herself to sleep every night until one day, i was browsing through yahoo answers and i saw a striking advert of a man that gives out personal loans and that the offer is opened to all and i have heard so many things about internet scams but at this point of my life, i was very desperate and ready to take any risk and at the end of the day, i applied for this loan and from one step to another, i got my loan within 12 hours through bank transfer and you know, it was all like a dream and i called Mr Daniel Jones A Man who is the GOD sent lender i found and said, i have received my loan and he smiled stating that to GOD be the glory and i was so shocked as i have never ever seen anyone with such a GOD fearing and kind heart and today, i am the happiest man on earth because by GOD’S grace, my SON kidney transplant was successful and today he is healthy, i and my family are living very comfortable and happy and if you are in my former situation or in serious and legitimate need of a loan, you can reach this GOD sent lender via fidelityloanfirm@outlook.com

  4. Elected officials, like Mourdock, get vested in 8 years. It takes 10 years for all other public employees, most of whom make a lot less money. So much for the promise to finish out his term.

  5. Great state treasurer and a good man!! Just curious if the folks who didn't quite understand his quote would like to tell my daughter-in-law that God didn't intend her! Mourdock's comment was correct but twisted and the article didn't mention that his opponent and the press let the impression stand that Mourdock meant that the rape was intended. Stupid people!!
