Round House Theatre will begin its 2018-2019 Season with Bess Wohl’s Off-Broadway hit Small Mouth Sounds (August 29 – September 23, 2018), the first of two shows in the season directed by Rilette. The season continues with Paula Vogel’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play, How I Learned to Drive (October 10 –November 14, 2018), directed by Amber Paige McGuinness; followed by August Wilson’s Gem of The Ocean (December 3 – 23, 2018), directed by Timothy Douglas, who returns to tackle Wilson’s American Century Cycle after directing Two Trains Running in 2014.
The season resumes in April 2019 when Rilette directs J.T. Rogers’ multiple award-winning Oslo (April 24 – May 19, 2019). Closing the season, newly appointed Associate Artistic Director Nicole A. Watson will helm her first show at Round House Theatre, Lucas Hnath’s A Doll’s House, Part 2 (June 5 – 30, 2019).
Round House’s performance venue in Bethesda will close in January 2019 for renovations, moving the final two shows of the season to the Lansburgh Theatre in downtown Washington, DC.
