Fayetteville’s own TheatreSquared has been working for 10 years to establish themselves as the region’s premiere independent theatre company.  Now as they celebrate their first decade, they appear primed to solidify that position with a phenomenal new season and the first stages to building a new theatre.

The theatre company has been selected as an inaugural project for the Walton Family Foundation’s Northwest Arkansas Design Excellence Program, providing significant grant funding to support exceptional architecture and design for a permanent home for T2. The program provides financial support to develop space for public purposes, with funds earmarked for all phases of design work. The first pool of designers will be selected by a panel of distinguished professionals.

TheatreSquared will produce Lauren Gunderson’s critically acclaimed new drama, "I And You," which begins performances October 12 in Northwest Arkansas. This “sharp and funny, buoyant” (Washington Post) new drama about the existential crisis of being an almost-adult is the winner of 2014 American Theatre Critics Association New Play Award. Classmates but virtual strangers, Caroline and Anthony are thrust together by a school project — which, he sheepishly tells her, is due tomorrow. Homebound by illness, Caroline is less than welcoming of Anthony, whose pathetic poster on Walt Whitman may be beyond rescue. But, as the poetry project progresses, Caroline finds herself opening up in ways she never expected, and the two discover a deeper mystery has brought them together. Performances are scheduled for October 12–November 6, 2016, with tickets ($15-$40) available at theatre2.org or (479) 443-5600.

In his latest play Fault, renowned playwright Robert Ford (Look Away, The Spiritualist, My Father’s War) tackles one of mankind's greatest fears of the modern age—nuclear fallout.  On February 4, TheatreSquared will begin performances of his newest work. Drama Desk Award-winner Josh Hecht will direct the world premiere production.

TheatreSquared (T2) Artistic Director Robert Ford and Executive Director Martin Miller today announced TheatreSquared’s Season 11, a yearlong lineup of award-winning new comedies, adventure, and contemporary drama that marks the company’s first six-play subscription season. Season packages are on sale today and offer a major new perk: T2 subscribers will now enjoy member pricing whenever they travel to 20 other national professional theatres from New York’s Public Theatre, to Chicago’s Steppenwolf, to San Diego’s La Jolla Playhouse. Subscription packages are on sale now via Tickets Northwest Arkansas at (479) 571-2785 or online at theatre2.org/subscribe.

Writers go through many drafts before the final product and playwrights are no exception. But when your work requires actors, what do you do?  You workshop it.

On June 18-28, TheatreSquared will welcome five playwrights to the stage at the 2015 New Play Festival. This unique event will give theatre lovers the opportunity to get a sneak preview of five great plays right here in Downtown Fayetteville.

“It’ll be a rich and exciting festival,” said Robert Ford, Artistic Director. “Every kind of comedy from low-brow to high-, plus some sharp social commentary. Scripts that are still in their infancy. Another that’s already slated for off-Broadway. And an amazing group of actors, directors and playwrights.”

Get ready for some fun - TheatreSquared will launch its Tenth Anniversary Season with the riveting modern classic Amadeus, by Peter Shaffer! The production will be co-directed by T2 co-founder and associate artistic director Amy Herzberg (Good People,One Man Two Guvnors) and by Broadway veteran Sean Patrick Reilly (Hamlet, Superior Donuts).

Winner of five Tony Awards—including Best Play—and the Oscar for Best Picture, Amadeus is a modern classic, weaving intrigue, comedy, suspense, and music into a tale of breathtaking dramatic power. His legacy threatened, composer Antonio Salieri schemes to discredit a foul-mouthed former child prodigy. But genius, it seems, is not easily obscured, and Salieri must ask himself how far he will go to destroy the young Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
