James Bundy ’95MFA |

Next season at Yale Rep

Yale Repertory Theatre’s 2022–23 season of four plays will open with Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, running October 6–29. Artistic director James Bundy ’95MFA, DGSD dean, who directed Albee’s A Delicate Balance at Yale Rep in 2010, will stage this new production of the explosively comedic and harrowingly profound masterpiece. The world premiere of The Brightest Thing in the World by Leah Nanako Winkler, directed by Margot Bordelon ’13MFA, will play November 25–December 17. The funny and compassionate new play was commissioned by Yale Rep with support provided by Yale’s Binger Center for New Theatre. Next up will be Mojada, playwright Luis Alfaro’s reimagining of Medea through the unforgettable story of an undocumented family caught in the grip of the American immigration system. Directed by Laurie Woolery, the play will be performed March 10–April 1. The season will conclude with the ripple, the wave that carried me home by Christina Anderson ’11MFA, April 28–May 20. The poignant and quietly subversive story of justice, legacy, and forgiveness will be staged by resident director Tamilla Woodard (’02MFA, chair of acting), making her Yale Rep directing debut.
