Love seeing new plays?  Want to be a part of the development process? If so, The Cape Cod Theatre Project has just the ticket for you this summer – plus it’s virtual, so you can watch from anywhere.

Based in Falmouth, MA, the Cape Cod Theatre (CCTP), develops new plays for the American Theatre, and this year we will develop our 100th play.

From July 1 – 24 watch four exciting playwrights bring new work that explores birth, death, identity, hidden secrets and far-reaching love.

Check out our lineup:

July 1 & 3 The Collapse
by Selina Fillinger and directed by Margot Bordelon
Alice is thrilled when she lands a summer research position with Viola Vauclain, the legendary entomologist specializing in bees. But as the summer goes on, it quickly becomes clear that the apiarian colonies are not the only thing on the verge of collapse. Accompanied by a band of Beatnik Bees, a wild and surprising new MTC/Sloan commission about science, legacy, and our own animal selves.

July 8 &10 Tiny Father
by Guggenheim Fellow Mike Lew and directed by Tony-nominated director, Moritz von Stuelpnagel
A slice-of-life comedy about parenthood: Daniel’s “friends with benefits” relationship comes to a screeching halt when he suddenly finds himself the new father to a months-premature baby. His guide in the strange purgatory of hospital living? A grizzled oversharing nurse named Caroline. Tiny Father began as a commission from the Audible Theater Emerging Playwrights Fund and is loosely based on playwright Lew’s own experience with a NICU baby.

July 15 &17 Roadkill or The Cottage on Mountain Lane – CCTP’s 100th Play
by playwright Amy Evans and directed by Reginald L. Douglas
Thirty-somethings Tequi and Cedric move to the Hudson River Valley to fulfill their dreams of a life in the country, following in the footsteps of generations of Black farmers before them. They close the deal on a small cottage with the perfect patch of land for planting and settle into their new home, but their dreams are tested when they discover that their one and only neighbor has an unsettling past— and a taste for fresh roadkill. Tequi and Cedric must confront their deepest fears to hold on to their dreams and to each other.

July 22 & 24 God’s Spies
by Bill Cain and directed by CCTP’s Artistic Director, Hal Brooks
During the plague of 1603, Shakespeare must quarantine with a puritan lawyer and a streetwise prostitute while struggling to write his next masterpiece, King Lear.
