FETCH CLAY, MAKE MAN by Will Power                            
What does it mean to be a Black man in America?

Dec. 5-Jan. 6     Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre, Studio Theatre
His name was Cassius Clay, but you know him as Muhammad Ali. His name was Lincoln Theodore Monroe Andrew Perry, but you know him as Stepin Fetchit. Or, do you really know either of these men at all? Loosely inspired by the pair’s real-life friendship, DTC Playwright-in-Residence Will Power has crafted a daring script that brings these two iconic figures together to shape their legacies against the backdrop of the Civil Rights Movement. A powerful exploration of what it is to be a black man in America, Fetch Clay, Make Man pulls no punches. 


 

THE WOLVES by Sarah DeLappe                          
Play like a pack of girls.

Mar. 6-Apr. 7     Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre, Studio Theatre
Drive. Ambition. Endurance. Precision. We’re not talking about any high school girls’ soccer team, we’re talking about a pack of female warriors, determined to score. This elite squad of nine teenage girls meets every Saturday to stretch before their games, and high school gossip rapidly evolves into mature meditations on the girls’ understanding of themselves and their place in the world. Breakout playwright Sarah DeLappe writes these girls “as soccer players — not as daughters, not as girlfriends, not as sexual objects, but as athletes.” A 2017 Pulitzer Prize finalist, The Wolves is a fierce and unexpected play that has been taking the theater world by storm since the moment the girls took the field.


 

WORLD PREMIERE

PENNY CANDY by Jonathan Norton                            
Life in Dallas' Pleasant Grove was both sweet and sour.   

June 5-July 7     Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre, Studio Theatre
Growing up in a candy house sounds like every kid’s dream. But for 12-year-old Jon-Jon, helping his father run Paw Paw’s Candy Tree out of their run-down one-bedroom apartment isn’t quite a dream come true. As their neighborhood sees a surge of violence fueled by epidemic drug use and increasing racial tensions, the business begins to fail and danger looms immediately outside Jon-Jon’s front door. Oh, and then there’s the looming threat of Vacation Bible School. Worst summer ever! A world premiere from Dallas playwright Jonathan Norton, and set in Dallas’ own Pleasant Grove, Penny Candy follows one family as they seek to balance their responsibilities to their community and to one another. 


 

HOLIDAY ADD-ON

A CHRISTMAS CAROL by Charles Dickens, adapted by Kevin Moriarty
Dallas’ family-favorite holiday tradition.   

Nov. 21-Dec. 30    Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre, Potter Rose Performance Hall
Tis the season to be jolly when Dallas’s favorite holiday tradition returns to the Wyly Theatre! Three spirits have come to visit the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge, and to take him on a fantastic journey through Christmases past, present, and future that annually delights audiences across North Texas. But will it be enough to save Scrooge’s soul? Brimming with joyful songs, magical spirits, and holiday cheer, Dallas Theater Center’s A Christmas Carol boldly reimagines Dickens’ classic tale of joy, redemption, and the spirit of Christmas.
