The Pitmen Painters
2009 Best Play - London Evening Standard. In 1934, a group of Ashington miners and a dental mechanic hired a professor from Newcastle University to teach an evening Art Appreciation class. Unable to understand each other at first, they embarked on one of the most unusual experiments in British art as the pitmen learned to become painters. Within a few years the most avant-garde artists became their friends, their work was taken for prestigious collections, and they were celebrated throughout the British art world; but every day they worked, as before, down the mine. Andrew Paul directs Lee Hall's play.

Honeck, Mozart & Mahler
Manfred Honeck's Mahler journey continues with the Symphony #7, one of the highlights of the season. This grand work, composed at a tumultuous time in the composer's life, is sad yet triumphant and features two “night music” movements. Though a demanding piece both technically and musically, this monumental symphony is extremely gratifying for the musicians and audience alike. The concert begins with an appetizer of "A Little Night Music" by Mozart.

Gem of the Ocean
This play features the potent power of Aunt Ester, August Wilson's gatekeeper to spiritual matters, and the hearts of the Hill residents she loves. When Aunt Ester opens her home to the troubled Citizen Bartow, a recent migrant from the rural South, a battle ensues not only within Citizen, who begs Aunt Ester to "wash his soul," but also between Citizen and Caesar Wilkes, a stern man of the law, threatened by Citizen's independence and defiance of his authority.. Performed by the August Wilson Center Theater Ensemble, Mark Clayton Southers, director.
