As we considered the plays Local would present this season, we asked ourselves: Can theater do what politics isn’t doing right now—namely, inspire people to talk respectfully about their differences? And to do so live, in real-time, without retreating to the internet?
Politics is inherently about our differences—what side we’re on. Art, however, offers an opportunity to examine our differences without being defined by them.
From the riveting, and surprisingly funny, new play The Rape of the Sabine Women by Grace B. Matthias to the world premiere of Wisdom From Everything, set in a Syrian refugee camp, our 2017/18 season introduces you to remarkable characters who remain hopeful in the face of dehumanizing and divisive politics.

So, what does all of this have to do with goats? We’ll be meeting new people every Saturday at the Farmer’s Market this fall. Come visit our booth; we’ll have real live goats to cuddle! Seriously. Because nothing brings people together like adorable animals.
