The 2024-25 season features an eclectic array of invigorating plays, including two – Ronald Harwood’s The Dresser and Mark St. Germain’s Camping with Henry and Tom – that were performed by PBD early in the company’s history. Over the years, longtime patrons have frequently expressed an interest in seeing them again, and Producing Artistic Director William Hayes decided that this special season provides the perfect opportunity to reach back into the company’s past and introduce new audiences to these estimable works. At the same time, the company continues its commitment to new plays with the world premiere of Gina Montet’s Dangerous Instruments, which was enthusiastically received when it was given a reading as part of the 2023 New Year/New Plays Festival (now the Perlberg Festival of New Plays). Rounding out the season are two critically acclaimed and much honored works: Neil Simon’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Lost in Yonkers – the first of his plays ever to be performed by PBD – and Stephen Karam’s Tony Award-winning The Humans.
