Event Summary

For the 2023-2024 season, Stray Cat Theatre brings Gloria, POTUS, Until The Flood and Sleeping Giant to the Tempe Center for the Arts.

Feb. 16 – March 2, 2024: Until The Flood

Until The Flood is a gripping and revelatory new play constructed and informed by interviews playwright Dael Orlandersmith conducted with a cross-section of people in and around Ferguson. All of whom have vastly different perspectives on the incident that turned the town into a flashpoint in America’s never-ending struggle for racial justice. As it examines the community fallout after the fatal officer-involved shooting of Michael Brown, Until The Flood hunts for deeper societal truths – giving voice to a community haunted by injustice and a country desperately yearning for change.

May 3 – 18, 2024: Sleeping Giant

The newest play from Stray Cat fave and now Golden Globe and Emmy-nominated playwright Steve Yockey 
From the writer of Stray Cat hits Mercury, Pluto, Wolves and Octopus – and now the acclaimed creator/showrunner of television’s “The Flight Attendant” and the upcoming “Dead Boy Detectives,” we are beside ourselves to welcome Steve Yockey back to the litter. This production will also feature our Associate Head Kitty Louis Farber in the cast. When Ryan’s firework-filled marriage proposal accidentally awakens an ancient creature sleeping in a nearby lake, local residents become consumed by stories about the ‘thing’ and the dark effects it has on anyone who touches it. Admirers descend into zealotry and obsession where mob mentality, paranoia and blind faith beat common sense in a landscape that looks surprisingly close to the world in which we live today.
