Announcing our 2018–2019 Season: "THE REAL UNREAL"

Flat Earth Theatre invites audiences to question narrators, motives, and realities in its much anticipated 2018–2019 season: THE REAL UNREAL.

Featuring Delicate Particle Logic, in which Jennifer Blackmer fuses art and science to unpack questions about the discovery and subsequent usage of atomic fission; Allison Gregory’s Not Medea, a fourth wall–shattering tour de force that pulls the Greek classic apart at the seams; and King of Shadows, an expedition into magical realism and urban fantasy by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Flat Earth’s 13th season spotlights unreliable narrators, and seeks the intrinsic truths found in the gap between real and unreal.
