‘Ghosts,’ ‘Cherry’ at Yale

Lineup also includes 'Safe in Hell,' 'People Next Door'

NEW HAVEN, Conn. — “Dance of the Holy Ghosts: A Play on Memory,” by Yale School of Drama 2003 grad Marcus Gardley, will receive its world preem at New Haven’s Yale Repertory Theater as part of its six-play 40th anniversary season.

Also slated is season opener “The Cherry Orchard,” staged by Bill Rauch, whose previous Rep productions included the epic “Medea/Macbeth/Cinderella” and last fall’s acclaimed “The Clean House.” Rauch is also founder and artistic director of the Los Angeles-based Cornerstone Theater Company, a position he will vacate at the end of next season after 20 years.

Also in the lineup is the East Coast premiere of Amy Freed’s Salem witch trials satire “Safe in Hell,” which preemed last spring at South Coast Repertory; Henry Adam’s Edinburgh Fest hit “The People Next Door”; and “All’s Well That Ends Well,” directed by a.d./Yale School of Drama dean James Bundy. A sixth play is still to be announced.

In addition, the Rep and Long Wharf Theater will co-present a one-nighter of the tour of “Mabou Mines DollHouse.”
