Homeless Garden

by Matt Minnicino

Homeless Garden
May 2 - 25, 2024

Kathleen Akerley will direct Avant Bard’s production of Homeless Garden, written by Matt Minnicino and co-developed by Chicago’s Refracted Theatre Company and Director Graham Miller. The production runs from May 2 through May 25, Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays at 2:00 p.m. A DC-area premiere, Homeless Garden modernizes and deconstructs Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard with an eye on the interconnection of environmental and class issues.  Minnicino is a playwright known to area audiences for his Helen Hayes nominated adaptation of The Misanthrope for Avant Bard in 2019.

Previews and Saturday Matinees are Pay-What-You-Will performances. Both performances on Saturday, May 18 (2:00 pm and 7:30 pm), are Mask-Required performances.
