SAN DIEGO — The world premiere of A.R. Gurney's "Another Antigone" and the American premiere of Alan Ayckbourn's "Intimate Exchanges" will highlight the Old Globe Theatre's winter season, theater artistic director Jack O'Brien announced Tuesday.
Gurney's "dark comedy" about conflicts between a university student and her classics professor will open the season Nov. 29 on the Cassius Carter Centre Stage. Gurney, whose "The Dining Room" was staged at the Carter in 1983, will be in residence. The play will run through Jan. 11.
Lyle Kessler's "Orphans," a psychological drama, will be the second play at the Carter, running Jan. 24 to March 8.
The Carter season will close with the San Diego premiere of "Marry Me a Little," a musical revue of outtakes from various Stephen Sondheim musicals. "Marry," conceived by Craig Lucas and Norman Rene, will play from March 21 to May 3.
The season will begin on the larger Globe stage with "Intimate Exchanges." Two actors will play 10 roles in Ayckbourn's domestic comedy, which runs Dec. 4 through Jan. 11.
