Current Season 2018–19

The Theatre department of Barnard College cultivates independent artistic vision pursued by professional and emerging theatre artists. We also recognize that, in the educational environment of the college and the university, artistic work both participates in the curriculum and is part of a wider community conversation as well.  Some productions included in our seasons may contain scenes staging verbal, physical, or sexual violence.  If a specific content warning is warranted, it will be posted on the ticketing website, posted outside the performance space, and/or printed in the program.  If you are concerned about whether or how any action or content might be depicted in any of our shows, please contact theatre@barnard.edu.

On the brink of transforming himself into the writer of realistic dramas of modern life for which he became famous and notorious, Henrik Ibsen wrote a hugely ambitious play of global reach centering on the shape-shifting adventurer, Peer Gynt. Our 2018–19 season opens with a newly-imagined production directed by Shannon Sindelar.

Set against the contemporary plagues of addiction, broken families and a failing ecology, Stefanie Zadravec's Colony Collapse is part Greek tragedy, part classic American drama, woven as meditation on the brutal dynamics of family and individual crises.
