Manbites Dog Theater announced its upcoming 2015/16 season today. As usual, the Durham-based company will feature four resident productions, supplemented by an “Other Voices” series of guest artists.

The company’s 29th year includes encore productions of noted recent shows by StreetSigns Center for Literature and Performance and The Delta Boys.

The season opens in October with the regional premiere of Mr. Burns, a Post-Electric Play, Anne Washburn’s dark comedy, in which an episode of The Simpsons slowly takes on different meanings to survivors of an apocalypse.

In December, StreetSigns remounts its five-star production of Howard Craft's Freight: The Five Incarnations of Abel Green.

January brings a re-staging of The Delta Boys’ superb Caryl Churchill drama, Love and Information.

In February, playwright Kimber Lee discloses a death foretold—that of a young African-American man—in the regional premiere of brownsville song (b-side for tray).

April sees another regional premiere, The Nether, a futuristic drama that won the 2012 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize.

In May, Little Green Pig Theatrical Concern debuts The New Colossus, Tamara Kissane’s adaptation of Chekhov’s The Seagull.

Several cards remain face down for now: Only two “Other Voices” productions have been announced, in a series that has featured three to six productions in recent years.
