"Theatrical Outfit's 2013-2014 season is selected to illuminate the life-fact that change is inevitable, but growth is optional,” says Tom Key, Executive Artistic Director. “The characters of these plays face adverse, even life-threatening, external circumstances out of their control. What makes compelling theatre is watching how they change the only thing they can, their very selves; and in so doing, make meaning from suffering, and transform tragedy into comedy."
By Anne Nelson
September 11 – October 6, 2013
Directed by Elisa Carlson
Featuring Jasmine Guy and Brian Kurlander
Based on playwright Nelson’s own story, we meet Joan, an editor, as she receives an unexpected phone call from Nick, the fire captain. He requests her help on composing the many eulogies he must deliver at memorial services for the men he lost on 9/11. As the afternoon wanes, a friendship grows while the two navigate the emotional landscape of grief, drawing on humor and the bonds of a common humanity.
"A courageous and riveting play that tackles the horror of September 11th with an intimacy that's both unsettling and healing."
—Christian Science Monitor
By Jonida Beqo
October 23 – November 10, 2013
Directed by Justin Anderson
This riveting one-woman narrative thrills and inspires. Jonida Beqo--known on the slam poetry scene as Gypsee Yo--boasts international awards and critical praise. Featured on NPR’s “Snap Judgment” and at Lincoln Center’s Out of Doors Series, Beqo, the 2008 Southern Queen of Slam, intertwines theatre, dance and poetry to tell her dynamic personal journey from Albanian refugee to American resident, illuminating the universal truths that link us one to the other and to the joy of embracing life at all costs.
"We’ve had standing ovations before but never in the middle of the performance.”

THE BEST OF ENEMIES
By Mark St. Germain
January 29 – February 23, 2014
Directed by Mira Hirsch
Inspired by Osha Gray Davidson's book of the same name and based on a true story, Mark St. Germain's new drama, THE BEST OF ENEMIES reveals a universal truth: all people, no matter their differences, are capable of change. Amidst their incendiary words of prejudice
and fear, Ann, a civil rights activist, and C.P., an Exalted Cyclops of the KKK, forge an alliance based in respect and trust in an honest-to-goodness, modern-day parable of transformation and triumph for civil rights.
“…One of the most important historical plays about America to ever reach the stage.”
—New York Times
DIVIDING THE ESTATE
By Horton Foote
April 2 – April 20, 2014
Directed by Tom Key
Old resentments and sibling rivalries bubble to the surface as the hilariously dysfunctional Gordon family of Harrison, Texas, spar to claim the biggest piece of the pie in the wildly funny, Tony-nominated DIVIDING THE ESTATE by Pulitzer Prize and Oscar-winning Horton Foote. Matriarch Stella Gordon keeps her aging and money-strapped children on a short financial leash with no plans to split her 100-year old estate. But the kids have other ideas.
The NY Daily News declares, "DIVIDING THE ESTATE goes for laughs and succeeds, and at the same time comments on more sweeping notions of avarice, entitlement and carpetbagging karma." Featuring some of Atlanta’s finest and most beloved talent, DIVIDING THE
ESTATE is “good news for theatergoers” —New York Times
