Join us January 13 – 17 for The Rep’s Short-Play Festival, Rep Lab, which focuses on nine
distinct worlds in which something or someone is absent. The void that is created by these
“missing pieces” drives the characters to reach for fulfillment, forcing them on inspiring journeys of
self-discovery or to take rash actions with spectacular, often profound consequences.
You won’t want to miss this adventurous, edgy slate of hilarious comedies and moving dramas, capped off with an exciting world-premiere piece featuring and created by The Rep’s Intern Ensemble!
Nine Plays, Two Hours, Ten Bucks – what better way to spend an evening at The Rep!
Tickets: [masked] or www.MilwaukeeRep.com
Rep Lab Plays
Normal
by Jami Brandli |Directed by Neal Easterling
A touching exploration of two generations of men – a young father unable to connect with his pre-teen son and a young boy unwilling to bargain with his father – as they struggle for connection while trying to bridge a massive gap in the family.
Bright.Apple.Crush
by Steven Yockey| Directed by JC Clementz
A visceral, propulsive exploration of the motivations and impacts of
frightening, impulsive acts of revenge.
The Can-Can
by Kelly Younger |Directed by Laura Webb
Two tin cans connected by a string and seven dozen threadbare clichés, the only tools for communication at their disposal, Candie and Duncan’s chances to meaningfully connect with one another are hilariously slim – but that won’t stop them from trying!
Land of the Dead
by Neil Labute |Directed by Joshua Baggett
A character study of the price of survival and the shocking sacrifices that
we make for those we love. 
One for the Chipper
by Adam Seidel |Directed by Brent Hazelton
A woebegone Little League team attempts to break up their perfectly blemished
record by winning the final game of their season in this comic exploration of the lengths
to which we’ll go to find someone to talk to.
Letters from Quebec to Providence in the Rain
by Don Nigro |Directed by Sandy Ernst
An old book, some yellowing letters, a claw foot bathtub, dark creatures lurking in the basement, the sound of something scuttling in the cupboards and a mysterious, melancholy beauty beloved by everyone she encounters. A moody, atmospheric thriller that taps into the dark, surreal world of horror titan H.P. Lovecraft. Performed only on 1/16 and 1/17.
Parachute Silk
by Carson Kreitzer |Directed by Leda Hoffmann
An exhilarating look at two hopeful, young brides-to-be in the 1940’s who long for the return of their servicemen fiancés and dream about their perfect weddings despite the strictures of wartime rationing. A joyous, heartwarming story about being reunited with those we love.
Lobster Boy
by Dan Dietz |Directed by Brent Hazelton
Two young brothers – one who can, quite literally, feel no pain – spend a most
unique childhood together, until a change in the rules of a favorite game one
moonlit evening leaves their lives irrevocably altered.
The final component of Rep Lab will be a never-before-seen,
world-premiere short play, developed and devised by the Ensemble!
 
Rep Lab plays for just 5 performances, Jan. 13 – 17!
