>> New Ground Theatre’s 13th Anniversary Season 2013-2014

Other Desert Cities
By Jon Robin Baitz
Directed by David Turley
October 18 - 27
The play's events occur around the Christmas 2004 holiday, when the family of Polly and Lyman Wyeth gather in Palm Springs, California. Their daughter Brooke announces to her family that she is about to publish a memoir dredging up a pivotal and tragic event in the family's history—a wound they don't want reopened. A finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Next Fall
By Geoffrey Nauffts
Directed by Christina Myatt
January 24 - February 3
Two gay men are in a committed relationship with a twist, with one, Luke, being devoutly religious and the other, Adam, an atheist. The play revolves around their five-year relationship and how they make it work despite their differences. However, when an accident changes everything, Adam must turn to Luke's family for support and answers.
An "artful, thoughtful and very moving story" – Ben Brantley, New York Times

The Whipping Man
By Matthew Lopez
Directed by Fred Harris
March 21 - 30
Set in Virginia following the final days of the Civil War, a Jewish Confederate soldier returns to his childhood home only to find it in ruins and occupied by his former slaves. Though a new chapter of history is unfolding, dangerous secrets of the past threaten to destroy their connected history, and their shared faith. The Whipping Man is a moving and provocative look at a pivotal time in American history.
