Ruhl rules at Yale Rep

Theater making 'Mistakes'

Yale Repertory Theater is looking to sweep up again with a new play by Sarah Ruhl, “Eurydice,” which opens its 2006-07 season on Sept. 22.

Two years ago, Ruhl’s “The Clean House” world preemed at the theater before a series of productions at major regionals across the country. (It is slated to come to Lincoln Center for an Off Broadway run this fall.)

A reimagination of the myth, “Eurydice” originated at Berkeley Repertory Theater in 2004 and will be further developed in New Haven with helmer Les Waters, who staged the work at Berkeley.

Elizabeth Meriwether’s comedy “The Mistakes Madeline Made” begins a Rep run Oct. 27. Meriwether’s “Heddatron” played Off Broadway earlier this spring and “Madeline” is currently at Off Broadway’s Naked Angels. Meriwether is a 2004 grad of Yale College.

Keith Reddin’s “Black Snow,” which bowed at Chicago’s Goodman Theater in the late 1990s, will have another go starting Dec. 1 with helmer Evan Yionoulis.

The Rep also will present the touring production of “In the Continuum,” written and performed by Danai Gurira and Nikkole Salter, starting Jan. 12.

Helmer Mark Lamos will oversee German playwright Frank Wedekind’s “Lulu,” starting March 30.

The final play of the season is still to be announced.
