Poster for Theatre Dep. production of GIANTS HAVE US IN THEIR BOOKS by Jose Rivera

The Middlebury College Department of Theatre is proud to announce the return of its in-person performances with the presentation of GIANTS HAVE US IN THEIR BOOKS by José Rivera, directed by Alex Draper. In this evening of short plays, Rivera applies his “profuse and sometimes self-consciously fantastical stew of magical realism” to the creation of fables for grown-ups, resulting in “compelling, entertaining and provocative theatre” (San Francisco Examiner). The production will be presented live by a company of 14 actors before a limited in-person audience restricted to college students, faculty and staff, and streamed to the general public.

GIANTS HAVE US IN THEIR BOOKS will be streamed on Friday, April 16 at 7:30 P.M., Saturday, April 17 at 2:00 P.M. and 7:30 P.M, and Sunday April 18 at 7:30 PM. Audience members are invited to join us for a live “Meet the Company” event following the Sunday show. The performance runs approximately 90 minutes with one intermission.

Picture of the cast of EVERYBODY by Branden Jacobs-Jenkis

The Middlebury College Department of Theatre season continues with a lively production of EVERYBODY by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, "one of this country’s most original and illuminating writers” (NY Times).

This modern riff on the 15th century morality play Everyman follows "Everybody" as they travel toward life's greatest mystery. So many questions arise along the journey. Why leave now? What can Everybody bring? Who will come with them? When will they return? Middlebury College’s version, directed by new Theatre faculty Olga Sanchez Saltveit, is a site-specific trek in and around Wright Theatre, and a collaboration with the Department of Dance, featuring original choreography and performance by The Dance Company.

The production will be presented live by a company of 17 actors and 9 dancers before a limited in-person audience restricted to college students, faculty and staff. Its recording will be streamed to the general public.

EVERYBODY will then be streamed on Wednesday, May 19th through Friday, May 21st. The performance runs approximately 90 minutes with no intermission. Please stay tuned for streaming registration.
