It is my absolute pleasure to announce Theatre Conspiracy at the Alliance for the Arts’ 29th consecutive season. Once again we are bringing you another exciting season of affordable, quality entertainment that covers the classic to the cutting edge. New playwrights like Selina Fillinger, what will be our 5th production out of the 10 plays that make up August Wilson’s American Century Cycle, the world premiere of local favorite Derek Lively’s The Last Show, our off the wall production of Clown Bar by Adam Szymkowicz and more. There is something for everyone!

Individual tickets and season subscriptions are now available.

Experience it all with a season subscription and receive up to $36 in savings! If you plan on attending multiple shows, we have a variety of flexible subscription packages that will fit any budget and offer you more freedom in your schedule.

As most know, ticket sales alone will not sustain our theatre. Charitable contributions are an essential part of creating extraordinary productions that challenge and entertain audiences; to keep ticket prices affordable for all theatergoers; and to enrich the life of a community we all share.

Naturally any assistance you can provide from $1 to $100 billion dollars will be appreciated! If you are able, we ask that you make a tax-deductible contribution of cash or stock to Theatre Conspiracy at the Alliance for the Arts which will allow us to continue producing great plays into our 29th Season. And please give us your feedback, as an audience member and supporter, to help us better serve you.

We can’t wait to see you in our theatre – keep scrolling to see the full season!

Clown Bar by Adam Szymkowicz and directed by Bill Taylor

August 18 – 28 • Join us for this immersive experience as we transform the Alliance theatre into the Clown Bar, plunging you into the dark and secret world of these hilarious, yet frightening, gangster clowns!

Clown Bar by Adam Szymkowic with music and additional lyrics by Adam Overett is a zany Clown noir-dramedy. When Happy Mahoney’s younger brother Timmy is gunned down, he returns to the world of organized clown crime he left behind. Will Happy be able to face his past, discover the killer and get out alive without getting sucked into the underbelly of vice and violence that’s nearly impossible to escape at the Clown Bar? Find out in this crazy production!

August Wilson’s The Piano Lesson Directed by Sonya McCarter

October 20 – 29 • The Piano Lesson, set in 1936 Pittsburgh, focuses on the conflicting wills of brother and sister, Boy Willie and Berniece, regarding their family’s most important heirloom, a piano. But this is no ordinary piano as it contains intricate carvings by their great-grandfather depicting the many struggles in their family history. The piano was originally owned by the slave owners of their family, with carvings of their great-grandmother, grandfather, and the likeness of their whole family tree.

The production is generously sponsored by Noreen Raney and Alliance of the Arts’ Fifth Play of August Wilson’s American Century Cycle.

The Parking Lot by Adam Szymkowicz and Directed by Madelaine Weymouth

December 8 – 18 • J and Terry are married, but they might not stay that way for long. While most couples have the benefit of negotiating the ups and downs of marriage in private, or in therapy, J and Terry have taken a different approach. Instead they have chosen a parking lot as the setting to answer one of life’s biggest questions: Should we get divorced? Be prepared to watch the most private and intimate exchange in the most public and open venue, a parking lot.

Please note this performance takes place outside in our parking lot. In the event of inclement weather, we will reach out to you to either refund or reschedule the viewing.
