POTUS

Or, Behind Every Great Dumbass Are
Seven Women Trying To Keep Him Alive

THREE TONY AWARD NOMINATIONS
Written by Selina Fillinger / Directed by Jennifer Childs

September 12 – October 6, 2024

When the President unwittingly spins a PR nightmare into a global crisis, the seven brilliant and beleaguered women he relies upon must risk life, liberty, and the pursuit of sanity to keep the commander-in-chief out of trouble. Comic dynamo Jennifer Childs directs the Philadelphia premiere of this all-female farce – a hilarious homage to the women who keep things running and get the job done.

INTIMATE APPAREL

By Lynn Nottage / Directed by Amina Robinson

October 24 – December 1, 2024

The time is 1905. The place, the Lower East Side. Sewing beautiful lingerie gives Esther Mills, an African American seamstress, an intimate look at the lives of her clientele, but she yearns for a story of her own. The Arden returns to the work of Lynn Nottage – two-time Pulitzer Prize winner of last season’s Clyde’s — for this moving portrait of love, resilience, and the rich tapestry of life directed by Barrymore Award-winner Amina Robinson.

WORLD PREMIERE
By Michael Hollinger / Directed by Terrence J. Nolen

January 16 – February 23, 2025

When Newton Stover III discovers the long-lost recordings of a legendary bluesman in the basement of his granddaddy’s rundown music studio, he resolves to rebuild his life and legacy. But time and money are running out fast, and the ghosts of the past — and an unexpected stranger — keep showing up.  Holy Grail of Memphis is a new comedy by Philadelphia playwright Michael Hollinger about embracing the future, releasing what haunts us, and singing the blues.

But his hopes conflict with the stories he’s been telling himself as he insists on planting seeds where nothing can grow. Set against the backdrop of 1980s Pittsburgh, King Hedley II continues the Arden’s commitment to August Wilson’s monumental American Century Cycle and will be directed by James Ijames, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of Fat Ham.
