Announcing the 2016-2017 Season!
Join Swine Palace as we celebrate 25 years of theatre in the Baton Rouge community! This season, we take a look at the magic of theatre and storytelling and how it is a vital part of creating our culture. Below, read a little about each of the productions – take note that this season we are offering two of our shows in rotating repertory, a rare opportunity here in Baton Rouge. Season subscriptions are on sale here. We look forward to seeing you at the theatre!
25th Anniversary Season
By Michael Frayn
Directed by Vastine Stabler
September 21 – October 2, 2016
- NOISES OFF, by Michael Frayn is a hilarious depiction of what goes on (and what goes wrong) backstage in the theatre. Come prepared to laugh at the uproarious antics of the cast and crew of NOTHING ON as they fumble their way through their stories happening onstage and off!
THE SEAGULL by Anton Chekhov
Directed by Gavin Cameron-Webb
In rotating repertory with
STUPID F***ING BIRD by Aaron Posner
Directed by Risa Brainin
March 22 – April 7, 2017
- Swine Palace is excited to present THE SEAGULL and STUPID F$%#ING BIRD in rotating repertory! THE SEAGULL is the classic Chekhov story about love and art in late 19th century Russia. In Aaron Posner’s adaptation, STUPID F%#$ING BIRD the story gets a hilarious and contemporary “retelling.”
LSU Mainstage Season:
MR. BURNS, A POST ELECTRIC PLAY
By Anne Washburn
Directed by Steven Young
November 9 – 20, 2016
- MR BURNS, A POST ELECTRIC PLAY by Anne Washburn is a dark comedy exploring the creation of the myths and legends that are valued by our culture. Imagine an entire series of stories based on The Simpsons!
LOVE AND INFORMATION
By Caryl Churchill
February 8 – 19, 2017
- LOVE AND INFORMATION is a fast moving kaleidoscope where more than a hundred characters try to make sense of what they know. This play by award-winning playwright Caryl Churchill takes a close look at the Information Age and how stories told through its data inspired obsessions, FaceTime conversations, and celebrity selfies threaten to replace human contact.
