Trinity to enter ‘Paradise’

Frayn, Margulies plays also included in season

SOUTHBURY, Conn. — The premiere of a new play by David Henry Hwang, author of the Broadway hit “M. Butterfly,” is expected to be one of the highlights of resident nonprofit Trinity Rep’s 38th season in Providence, R.I.

“Savage in Paradise,” woven around the character of French artist Paul Gauguin, is scheduled for a February-March run.

The Rep season will open and close with plays by Brit Michael Frayn, starting Aug. 31 with his theatrical farce “Noises Off,” directed by Amanda Dehnert, and ending next May-June with his intellectual drama “Copenhagen.”

The season also will include Donald Margulies’ Pulitzer Prize-winning “Dinner With Friends,” directed by Brian McEleney, and the 25th anniversary of the Rep’s Adrian Hall/Richard Cumming adaptation of Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol,” directed by Michael Baron. Completing the season will be Marc Wolf in “Another American: Asking and Telling,” his one-man show about the military’s controversial “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy, directed by Joe Mantello; J.M. Barrie’s “Peter Pan,” also directed by Dehnert; and another premiere, yet to be chosen.

Oskar Eustis continues as artistic director of the Rep. Edgar Dobie will join him in September as the new managing director.
