Season on the Horizons

Baker, Herzog back at Off Broadway company

Plays by Annie Baker and Amy Herzog are among the works joining the 2012-13 season slate at Off Broadway’s Playwrights Horizons, which also features the tuner rendition of “Far From Heaven.”

New plays by Tanya Barfield and Samuel D. Hunter also are on tap, alongside the previously announced run of Lisa D’Amour’s “Detroit,” a Chicago hit whose plans for a Broadway transfer never materialized.

Baker returns to Playwrights — where her career took off with the much-lauded “Circle Mirror Transformation” a few seasons ago — with “The Flick,” which follows the lives of three employees at an old New England movie theater. “Circle Mirror” helmer Sam Gold directs the world preem on Playwrights Horizons’ mainstage.

Herzog, whose “After the Revolution” was produced by the Off Broadway company, returns with the world premiere of “The Great God Pan,” about a young adult in Brooklyn who uncovers a possible childhood trauma. Carolyn Cantor helms.

“Great God” also plays the mainstage, as will “Detroit,” directed by Anne Kaufman, and the previously announced “Far from Heaven,” the movie adaptation by book writer Richard Greenberg and songwriters Scott Frankel and Michael Korie. Frankel, Korie and helmer Michael Greif previously launched tuner “Grey Gardens” at Playwrights.

Offerings in Playwrights Horizons’ smaller theater include Barfield’s “The Call,” which centers on a white American couple hoping to adopt an African child. Leigh Silverman directs the world preem.

Venue also will see the run of Hunter’s “The Whale,” about an obese man who tries to reconnect with his estranged teen daughter. Davis McCallum, who helmed Hunter’s “A Bright New Boise,” directs the play, which bowed earlier this year at Denver Center Theater.

Season casting, exact schedule and further details remain to be announced.
