Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess, directed by Timothy Sheader, from 17 July to 23 Aug 2014. It has a book adapted by Suzan-Lori Parks and a musical score adapted by Diedre L. Murray. Porgy and Bess is about love and betrayal and tells the story of Porgy, a beggar, and his devotion to taming wild Bess to save her from a life of ruin.
As previously announced, the 2013 production of Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird will then return to the venue to bring the 2014 season to a close.
