August 19 - October 9

Based on the novel by Ernest Hemingway
Created by Elevator Repair Service
Directed by John Collins

Last fall Elevator Repair Service (ERS) electrified audiences with the triumphant GATZ, based on F. Scott Fitzgeralds’s The Great Gatsby, and their interpretation of The Sound And The Fury received critical acclaim when it debuted at NYTW in 2008. The 2011-2012 Season begins with the long-awaited return of ERS to New York Theatre Workshop with the final chapter in their trilogy of classic American literature. THE SELECT (THE SUN ALSO RISES) will present a fresh take on Ernest Hemingway’s tale of young expatriates living in Europe after World War I. Journalist Jake Barnes, his former lover Lady Brett Ashley and the writer Robert Cohn inhabit Europe to cope with post-war realities and enter the “age of anxiety” following the end of the war.

November 15 - January 1

Book by Enda Walsh Music & Lyrics by Glen Hansard & Markéta Irglová
Based on the Motion Picture Written & Directed by John Carney
Music supervisor Martin Lowe
Movement by Steven Hoggett
Directed by John Tiffany

The creators of the acclaimed Black Watch, director John Tiffany and choreographer Steven Hoggett, join forces with playwright/screenwriter Enda Walsh (Penelope, Hunger, The Walworth Farce) to bring the hit independent film ONCE, winner of a 2007 Academy Award for the hit song “Falling Slowly,” to the stage.

On the streets of Dublin, an Irish musician and a Czech immigrant are drawn together by their shared love of music. Over the course of one fateful week, an unexpected friendship and collaboration quickly evolves into a powerful but complicated love story, underscored by the emotionally charged music that has made ONCE an international sensation.

ONCE will feature sets and costumes by Tony Award-winning designer Bob Crowley (The History Boys, Mary Poppins), lighting by Tony Award-winner Natasha Katz (Aida, The Coast of Utopia), and music supervision by Martin Lowe (Mamma Mia!).

February 15 - March 25

By Denis O'Hare and Lisa Peterson
Based on Homer's Iliad
Translated by Robert Fagles

Directed by Lisa Peterson

Visionary creators Lisa Peterson and Denis O’Hare have crafted a sprawling yarn based on Homer’s epic poem. AN ILIAD spins the familiar tale of gods and goddesses, undying love and endless battles told through an original and immediate voice. Making its New York premier, Tony Award-winning actors Denis O’Hare (Assassins, Take Me Out) and Stephen Spinella (Angels in America) will alternate as performers in this sweeping account of humanity’s unshakeable attraction to violence, destruction and chaos. Has anything really changed since the Trojan War?

May 18 - June 24

By Lameece Issaq and Jacob Kader
Directed by Shana Gold

A Co-Production with NOOR Theatre

Meet Fadwa Faranesh, an unmarried, 30-something Palestinian woman living in Bethlehem in the politically volatile West Bank. Known for her delectable cooking and deep-seated sense of duty to her family and aging father, our kitchen maven insists on continuing the preparations for the wedding of her younger sister, despite constraints of daily life under occupation. Politics blend with family tensions to create a sometimes humorous and sometimes heartbreaking meal. Story by Lameece Issaq and Jacob Kader, this new play melds the fight a Palestinian family wages to hold onto its traditional culture with its need to celebrate love, joy and hope. NYTW teams up with company-in-residence Noor Theatre to present FOOD AND FADWA
