North Carolina Stage Company announces 2015-16 season

The new season begins at the end of a cross-country cycling trip in 4000 Miles (Oct. 7- Oct. 25, 2015) when a young man appears on the stoop of his grandmother’s flat. These unlikely roommates find they have more in common than they thought in this warm and humorous play. 

Next up, can Someone Else (Nov. 4 – Nov. 29, 2015) help you answer life’s big questions? Family-man Dave finds himself with a Ukrainian escort while searching for answers to life, marriage, and responsibilities in this world-premiere production. 

The holiday season brings about All Is Calm (Dec. 9-Dec. 27, 2015), a dramatic re-telling of the poignant moment in history when Allied and German soldiers laid down their arms to celebrate the holiday together. NC Stage is pleased to partner with Cantaria, The Gay Men’s Chorus of Asheville, for this production. 

After that, Charlie Flynn-McIver and Scott Treadway join forces once more in Jeeves Intervenes (Jan. 27 - Feb. 21, 2016), complete with high-society playboys, an ever-faithful manservant, and a tall order of deception and disguise, from the stories of P.G. Wodehouse. 

Spring will bring Edward Albee’s first full-length play, which changed American drama forever, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolf? (April 6- May 1, 2016). This production is presented by Immediate Theatre Project, NC Stage’s Partner Company in Residence. 

Finally the season ends with a single Manhattan mother who has found herself back home in Texas with a teenage daughter, several hundred pairs of shoes, and cash linked to the Romanian mob in Bad Dates (May 11- June 5, 2015).

Producing Director and Co-Founder Angie Flynn-McIver states, "I'm excited about the whole line-up. Charlie and I put the season together so that there's something for everyone, but it also takes the devoted audience member, the folks who see everything, on a journey. You'll be different at the end of the season!"
