The Fall - Early Winter 2020 Season at DRT
September through December 2020
Because of the improvisational nature of the upcoming season, we will not be making season passes available.
Each program will be ticketed individually.
Previously scheduled for March as a part of the New Jersey Theatre Alliance Stages Festival. A Certain Age by Laura Ekstrand is a highly personal, honest and hilarious tour of what it means to be no longer young, but not yet old, as a woman today. The participatory experience will help women who are “in the middle” to sort through the many confusing messages coming at us from the media, our peers, and our own inner voices.
With Nicole Callender, Laura Ekstrand, Noreen Farley and Harriett Trangucci
Friday, September 18 @7:30 on Zoom
A Certain Age
by Laura Ekstrand
An Interactive Reading on Zoom
One Night Only!
by David Lee White
Audio Play | World Premiere
Originally scheduled for production in the spring of 2020, Ways to be Happy is coming to life as an audio play. This comedy about chasing our inalienable right will cover multiple locations using listeners’ imaginations and the lively sound design of Jeff Knapp. Darting from a convenience store to a cabin in the woods to a theme park, Maddie and the unusual people she meets are searching for happiness. Does it exist? Or is the world fundamentally rigged? Available in early October, the recording can be purchased for download right here.

November 12 @ 7:30pm on Zoom
Sitting and Talking is a piece written during the pandemic that reflects on our human need to connect, no matter what the circumstances. Charles and Enid are in their sixties, and have never tried online dating before, especially not over video chat. But now that they're confined to their homes, there's a first time for everything. A love story for this moment, Sitting and Talking will be available on Zoom for a limited time during the month of November.
With André deSandies and Gail Lou
In time for the holidays, Dreamcatcher will present an evening of new short plays commissioned from our favorite playwrights. Seven actors will perform seven plays about 10 minutes long with themes that can include Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Year’s Eve, the winter solstice, or anything that tickles the writers’ fancies. Holiday Bites will be performed live over two weekends. Register for the performance you'd like to attend!
December 4 through December 13, 2020
