The Rep’s season will also include a world preem, “Notes from Underground,” adapted from the Fyodor Dostoevsky novel by Robert Woodruff and Bill Camp, helmed  by Woodruff and featuring Camp. The production will run March 20 to April 11.

Other shows are Sarah Ruhl’s epic trilogy “Passion Play,” staged by Mark Wing-Davey (Sept. 19-Oct. 11); the East Coast preem of Octavio Solis’ “Lydia,” helmed by Juliette Carrillo, who staged the work in January in Denver (Feb. 6-Feb. 28, 2009); and Tom Stoppard’s “Rough Crossing,” helmed by Mark Rucker (Nov. 28-Dec. 4).
