    A Message From Evan Yionoulis:

    Welcome to Juilliard Drama Division’s Fourth Year Repertory. We are excited to share with you the work of our actors as they, in their final year at Juilliard, call on all aspects of their training, their passion and conviction, to bring to life a diverse roster of plays, working under the direction of exciting professional directors, and in worlds created by extraordinary teams of designers.

    This year’s repertory features three productions:

    Queens, by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwriting alumna Martyna Majok, and directed by Tyne Rafaeli, which depicts the lives of two generations of immigrant women and the price of starting over;

    Lucas Hnath’s Red Speedo, directed by Zi Alikhan, which examines two brothers’ quests to secure the American Dream, even if it means risking everything; and

    Bertolt Brecht’s Mother Courage and Her Children, directed by Richard Hamburger, a depiction of the cost of war that still resonates powerfully today, 80 years after it was written.

    We hope that you have had the chance to see several of the productions that Group 48 is sharing with our community this year. We look forward to seeing you back in the theater in the spring for Shakespeare’s As You Like It, directed by Ian Belknap, and The Tempest, directed by Jenny Koons, both featuring our third year actors.

    Evan YionoulisRichard Rodgers Director of the Drama Division Fa

    The three plays of the Fourth Year Repertory Season are rehearsed simultaneously and performed in rep as our actors reach the culmination of their training and prepare to enter the profession. These fully-mounted productions allow our actors to explore vital stories that speak to the concerns of the times, to apply all aspects of their training to the creation of character, and, finally, to share the work with you, the audience.

    These productions use the artist engagement services of the University Resident Theatre Association, Inc.

    The Drama Division’s 2018-2019 season is supported in part by a generous grant from The Fan Fox and Leslie R. Samuels Foundation.

    Please make certain that all electronic devices are turned off during the performance. The taking of photographs and the use of recording equipment are not permitted in this auditorium.
