Out On A Limb

OUT ON A LIMB: New Plays from America’s Finest City

July 12-14 and 19-21, 2013

SRT’s 2nd annual new-play competition is designed to create and stage new plays that spring from stories of San Diego and its people. SRT collaborates with two or three playwrights, from the birth of the idea for the play to its full production. Join us as we go “Out On A Limb” and experience compelling stories using “America’s Finest City” as a springboard for discovery.

Lettice and Lovage

LETTICE AND LOVAGE, by Peter Shaffer

The Gift Teller

THE GIFT TELLER, by Stephen Metcalfe

Nov. 9 – Dec. 8, 2013

For the second year in a row, we are bringing you a World Premiere. This one is by Stephen Metcalfe, Broadway playwright, Hollywood and television director and screenwriter. Based on O. Henry’s “The Gift of the Magi,” this is a tale of two young lovers, sacrifices, and happy endings – in other words, the perfect Holiday story. Come share it with a loved one.


Five Course Love

FIVE COURSE LOVE, A musical by Gregg Coffin

Jan. 18 – Feb. 23, 2014

The story of five entangled encounters with love in five different restaurants. Three actors play fifteen different characters, all on the hunt for one True Love. The musical styles reflect the cuisine of the eateries: Country & Western, Italian, German cabaret, Mexican, and 50s Doo-Wop – something for everyone. Joey Landwehr, Artistic Director of J* Company, returns to direct this fun evening of theater.


The Liar

THE LIAR, by Pierre Corneille, adapted by David Ives

Mar. 29 – Apr. 27, 2014

Our own Robert May will direct this 17th-century costume comedy. Dorante, a dashing young man, has but a single flaw: he cannot tell the truth. His manservant, Cliton, has but a single flaw: he cannot tell a lie. Add two lovely young ladies, Clarice and Lucrece, and you have such stuff as laughter is ‘made on.’ Don’t miss this dazzling display of wit and language. A San Diego Premiere.


The Sunshine Boys

THE SUNSHINE BOYS, by Neil Simon

May 31 – Jun. 29, 2014

Two old vaudevillian comedians are invited by CBS to revive their act for posterity. The only problem is that they hate each other. Ruff Yeager returns to SRT to direct two of San Diego’s favorite comedic actors, Phil Johnson and Eric Poppick, in the grudging reunion, thus ending our season as it began, by playing an “Odd Couple.”
