Remy Bumppo Theatre Company's 2014–15 season

Comedies from Ruhl, Stoppard and Anderson make up the slate


Remy Bumppo Theatre Company has announced a 2014–15 season of three comedies, while also introducing five new ensemble members: Kelsey Brennan, Peter Davis, Emjoy Gavino, Sandra Marquez and Eliza Stoughton. (The company is drawing a distinction between its six existing "artistic associates" and the "ensemble," which it describes as a new category.)

The season opens with Maxwell Anderson's Pulitzer-winning 1933 political satire Both Your Houses, directed by Remy Bumppo founder James Bohnen (October 1–November 9). That's followed by Sarah Ruhl's The Clean House (December 3–January 11), the first major Chicago production since the Goodman Theatre's 2006 staging; the cast will feature artistic associates Annabel Armour and Shawn Douglass and ensemble member Marquez, with a director yet to be named. Finally, current Remy Bumppo artistic director Nick Sandys will helm Tom Stoppard's Travesties (March 25–May 3), featuring artistic associate Greg Matthew Anderson and ensemble member Brennan. All three productions will be staged at the Greenhouse Theater Center.
