Oskar Eustis to direct ‘Compulsion’

Play to world preem at Yale Repertory Theater

Oskar Eustis will helm the world preem of Rinne Groff’s “Compulsion” next season at New Haven’s Yale Repertory Theater.

Show bows there Feb. 5-27 before the co-production moves on the Berkeley Repertory Theater and Gotham’s Public Theater, where Eustis is a.d.

The new work by the author of “The Ruby Sunrise” deals with a man’s passion to bring Anne Frank’s story to an American audience.

Also featured in the 2009-10 season at Yale Rep is a new play by Danai Gurira (“In the Continuum”), “Eclipsed,” about women living through Liberia’s vicious civil war. Liesl Tommy directs the production, playing Oct. 23-Nov. 14. (Washington D.C.’s Woolly Mammoth will produce the preem in a separate production with helmer Tommy, starting in late August.)

Also slated is Bernard-Marie Koltes’ thriller “Battle of Black and Dogs” (April 16-May 8), directed by Robert Woodruff, who staged the Rep’s recent “Notes from Underground.” And filling out the roster is Carlo Goldoni’s “The Servant of Two Masters,” adapted by Constance Congdon and directed by Christopher Bayes (March 12-April 3), and the season opener, Henrik Ibsen’s “The Master Builder,” helmed by Evan Yionoulis (Sept. 18-Oct. 10).

A sixth play remains to be announced.
