The Hypocrites have planned a fuller than usual slate for the theater company's 16th season. On the docket for the fall is a new adaptation by Sean Graney of Edgar Allan Poe's Fall of the House of Usher (August 14–September 30); Graney will direct a cast consisting of Hypocrites artistic director Halena Kays, Christine Stulik (The Pirates of Penzance) and Jessie Fisher (Jeff Award winner for the Hypocrites' Cabaret), with the actors rotating roles.

Graney and music director Kevin O'Donnell's take on Penzance returns for a third go-round, this time running in repertory with the pair's new adaptation of another Gilbert and Sullivan classic, Mikado (November 20–January 13).

Company member Geoff Button will helm his own cutting of Shakespeare's Coriolanus (March 26–May 11), followed by Kays's production of a new play by Jay Torrence (the Neo-Futurists' Burning Bluebeard, Daredevils) tentatively titled Stealing a Ferris Wheel (May 21–July 7). All performances will take place at the Chopin Theatre.
