Southern Rep Theater

Sean Glazebrook, Sean Knapp and Natalie Boyd appeared in Southern Rep’s season opener, “Speech & Debate.”

Founded in 1986, Southern Rep’s mission is to develop and produce new plays by American playwrights, provide our audience with professional theater of the highest artistic quality and achievement, and establish a creative working environment that nurtures theater professionals. We strive to use the artistry of theater to enlighten, educate and entertain audiences, and extend our service through educational and outreach programs. Upcoming Performances: Check the Website or call for specific dates and times. The Seafarer | Nov. 5-Dec. 7. By Conor McPherson, directed by Mark Routhier. In this surprisingly funny tall tale of redemption, Sharkey and his blind brother Richard are set to play some boozy Christmas Eve poker in their dingy Dublin flat when some old friends stop by with a darkly mystifying guest and the stakes become deadly serious. A regional premiere. Dying City | Jan. 14-Feb. 8. By Christopher Shinn, directed by Julie Hamberg. This Pulitzer Prize finalist at first seems a story about the wife and twin brother left grieving after a soldier’s baffling death in Iraq, but the layers peel away to reveal a shockingly raw, complex portrait of three people searching for far more than the why of a fatal gun shot.
