Trinity Rep 2018/2019 Season Announced

Tony-Award winning Trinity Repertory Company has revealed its 2018-19 season, Gods and Demons, Angels and Icons. This season is full of some shows that are classics, some familiar but reimagined, and one world premiere new work. Classic and reimagined does not mean dull, these stories will be retold in new and exciting ways.

According to Artistic Director Curt Columbus, ” In difficult times, we always return to the great stories that people tell to each other, stories that offer hope, that speak to what is truly brilliant within us, as humans, stories that acknowledge the eternal spark of our species. That’s why we’ve chosen these plays for this season, because they speak to the indomitable spirit of humankind in surprising, new, and unexpected ways.”
