The Prince of Providence
Sept. 12–Oct. 20, 2019
The nation knows him from Crimetown and Operation Plunder Dome, but Providence has a deeper and more complicated relationship with Buddy Cianci. A charismatic visionary who was also a corrupt philanderer, the long-time mayor defied the odds time after time — from his very first election to winning again after being arrested on assault charges. Surrounded by a colorful carousel of characters, Buddy gave Providence many things. Some are more visible — businesses, tourism, and relocated rivers. Others are less tangible, but no less real — pride, notoriety, and now, a great story to tell.
A Christmas Carol
Nov. 7–Dec. 29, 2019

Inspired by Tiny Tim and the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, Scrooge learns lessons that continue to remind us all about the true spirit of the holiday season. Trinity Rep’s magical, music-filled production continues its four-decade-long tradition of delighting audiences from throughout Southern New England

Lucia is understandably nervous. It’s day one at her first TV writing job. As a Mexican-born novelist, she may actually be the “diversity hire” she’s heard whispers about. Uncertain whether she can make a place for herself in cutthroat Hollywood, at least she feels less alone when she meets Abel, the Latino janitor. They form a bond and share stories, but it turns out that what Lucia gains from their friendship is not what Abel expects in this witty dramatic comedy about class, integrity and culture.

Jan. 30–March 1, 2020
Real estate developer and entrepreneur Harmond Wilks is determined to become the first black mayor of Pittsburgh and is on a mission to revive his blighted childhood neighborhood. As Wilks confronts the past, he is forced to question how pursuing change could put his neighborhood’s history at risk. Both moving and funny, Radio Golf is the culmination of August Wilson’s 10-play American Century Cycle, chronicling each decade of African American life in the 20th century.
