Evanston's Next Theatre has announced its 2013-14 season: the company's 33rd year.
The season begins with the Chicago premiere of "Compulsion" by Rinne Groff, a piece about the obsession of Meyer Levin with Anne Frank's diary. It is to be directed by Devon de Mayo.
The slate continues with the Midwest premiere of "Luck of the Irish" by Kirsten Greenidge and directed by Damon Kiely. That's a play about about a black family who, in 1951 Boston, pay a white family to buy a house on their behalf. The year concludes with the Midwest premiere of "The Great God Pan,"written by Amy Herzog and directed by Kimberly Senior.
Herzog is the author of "After the Revolution" (a big hit last year for Next) and "Belleville" (coming to Steppenwolf later this year).
