2021/2022 SEASON: EVOLVE

Cleveland Public Theatre (CPT)’s Executive Artistic Director Raymond Bobgan is proud to announce the 2021/2022 season, which delivers on CPT’s mission of raising consciousness and nurturing compassion through theatre that is daring, relevant, and socially conscious. Tickets on sale now.

Update to 2021/2022 Season

On September 30, Actors’ Equity Association (AEA) announced new rehearsal and production guidelines. To give the play and the artists the best chance for success, CPT is moving Breakout Session (or Frogorse) into the winter slot, March/April, and How the Baby Died, by Tori Keenan-Zelt, will be rescheduled for the 2022/2023 Season.

How the baby died

Coming Season 2022/2023 | How the Baby Died is a darkly visceral, absurdly comic play about parenting, pregnancy, abortion, and women’s physical self-agency. Contemporary comedy and Grand Guignol (a.k.a. French Horror Theatre!) collide, and the only prop available is a baby. And baby, it gets bloody. Hilarity, hijinks, and mayhem ensue. Is this comedy inappropriate? Or is it our views of women’s health that have gone awry?
