“The Lifespan of a Fact,” by Jeremy Kareken & David Murrell and Gordon Farrell
Oct. 5-30

Jim is a fresh-out-of-Harvard fact checker for a prominent New York magazine. John D’Agata is a talented writer with a transcendent essay – an essay that could save the magazine from collapse. A comedic yet gripping battle over facts versus truth. “…terrifically funny dialogue…the debate at the heart of this play transcends comedy and demands serious attention.” – Variety

Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “Carousel,”
Nov. 9-Dec. 4

Rodgers & Hammerstein’s masterpiece comes to life on our stage in a unique, intimate setting. Featuring the stunning twin-piano arrangement, classic tunes such as “If I Loved You,” “June is Bustin’ Out All Over,” “It Was a Real Nice Clambake,” and the immortal “You’ll Never Walk Alone” will transport audiences to a Maine coastal village. Experience this glorious story and score, unplugged and unamplified with a cast of 18 singers and actors.

“Crimes of the Heart,” by Beth Henley
Jan. 11-29


Winner of the 1981 Pulitzer Prize & New York Drama Critics Circle Award, the warm-hearted, irreverent, zany and brilliantly imaginative play teems with humanity and humor as it examines the plight of three young Mississippi sisters betrayed by their passions. This production features the four leads from Good Theater’s production of Significant Other! “It has heart, wit and a surprisingly zany passion…it would certainly be a crime for anyone interested in the theatre not to see this play.” – NY Post. “From time to time a play comes along that restores one’s faith in our theatre…” – NY Magazine.

“The High Road,” written & performed by Good Theater co-founder Steve Underwood
Feb. 1-19

This one-man, mind-altering multi-media show about weed takes a deep dive into the fun and the fascinating, finding high-minded humor in the most unlikely places. The world premiere of Steve Underwood’s latest creation is sure to give audiences a light-hearted lift and plenty of laughs in the dead of winter.

“Nureyev’s Eyes,” by David Rush
Feb. 22-March 12

Good Theater is proud to present the Maine premiere of this fascinating play about Maine artist Jamie Wyeth and ballet superstar Rudolf Nureyev. In the 1970s, Wyeth did a series of portraits of the famed dancer. In the beginning, the two could barely stand one another, but as the work progressed, they came to find that they shared more in common than they ever could have expected.
