    Ally Theatre Company is proud to present our third season of programming with two new plays and two regional premieres. This year we'll be looking at boundaries and barriers, those we draw on a map and those we draw around our hearts and minds. All four of our productions will play with the tension of space, physical and emotional, and examine the culture that influences how we determine who is in and who is out. 


    ALLY THEATRE COMPANY SEASON THREE


    Welcome to Sis's by Doug Robinson

    Directed by Angelisa Gillyard

    May 3-5 2019

    FOUR PERFORMANCES ONLY!

    It's Friday night in North Brentwood and anybody who's anybody knows the spot to be is Sis's Tavern.  Sis, Margaret, Willie, and Sterling are all on hand to prep for a busy night, but when James doesn't show on time, tensions begin to rise. Set in the 1940s, Welcome to Sis's shines a light on one community's ability to survive and thrive amidst the turbulent backdrop of racist housing codes and local dividing lines which played out across the country's neighborhoods and still affects us today.  


    The War Boys by Naomi Wallace

    Directed by Matt Ripa

    August 9-31 2019

    In their spare time three vigilantes, childhood friends, enjoy patrolling the U.S./Mexican border.  But these youths soon learn that even the most guarded borders are permeable. When the lines between fantasy and reality become dangerously blurred, these young men are forced to decide what it means to be an American, and who has the right to belong.  


    Dhana and the Rosebuds 

    Created and devised by Federica Cellini

    November 1-23 2019

    Dhana and the Rosebuds, follows a young Syrian woman pursuing her science career in NYC as she tries to forget her complicated past. But when she thinks she recognizes her estranged grandmother on a TV news report highlighting Syrian refugees crossing the Macedonia/Serbia border, she decides to go find her. Her international journey results in a spiritual rediscovery of her roots, her identity, and the reason why she left it all behind. 


    Rasheeda Speaking by Joel Drake Johnson

    Directed by Ty Hallmark

    March 6-22 2019

    This tense workplace thriller examines the realities of so-called "post-racial" {America} when two co-workers - one black, the other white - are driven apart by the machinations of their boss.  A chilling power struggle ensues that spins wildly out of control.  Rasheeda Speaking is an incisive and shocking dark comedy that keeps you in its claustrophobic grip until the final moment.

    The cost of producing our third season - including venue rental, artists stipends, and securing rights to produce these plays is upward of $75,000. We are proud we can support our programming through myriad funding streams, including grants, tickets sales, and sponsorships, but at the heart of it all is you - our community.  You continue to help us in our mission to uplift these voices and stories which so often go unheard in the American Theatre.  You are our foundation and we appreciate your support now and throughout the year.  


    As always, you may designate your gift to apply toward artists stipends, venue rental, or production costs.  If you would like to speak about sponsoring a specific show with a gift of $1000 or more, please contact Ty Hallmark (ty@allytheatrecompany.org)
