Spring 2023


by Lee Blessing
Directed by Ron Clark
Jan 26 – Feb 12, 2023

Two superpower arms negotiators in the 1980s go on a series of nature walks as they try to solve nuclear proliferation – and prevent the next great conflict. A story of the past, now eerily prescient.


by Maria Irene Fornés
Directed by Juliana Frey-Méndez
March 10 – April 2, 2023

One of the seminal plays of the 20th century, an experimental work that explores feminism and sexuality through the intimate lives of eight New England women in the 1930s. Taking full advantage of the flexibility that Riverside’s new home can provide, this play will transport the audience to several different “rooms” where the action of this tantalizing and surprising play takes place.


by Jen Silverman
Directed by Nina Morrison
