At long last, Love’s Labors Lost, Titus Andronicus, and our commissioned world premiere adaptation Cyrano de Bergerac: A Queeroic Comedy with Many Acts will finally take to the ISF stage this summer. This dynamic and evocative season was originally slated for the summer of 2020, and many of the artists whose work you’ll experience this summer have been “on hold,” waiting to share these stories with you for two, three, and even four years. It’s a rejuvenating return to rotating repertory, full of vim and vigor.

Join us on a journey through unexpected romance, unrequited love, and harrowing retribution. In Love’s Labors Lost, a self-imposed quarantine of sorts is interrupted by the opportunity for romance, as our heroes learn patience and that actions speak louder than words. Cyrano’s 17th century romantic icons mesh with our modern world as they learn self-love can give way to the partnership for which they’ve pined. Titus offers a cautionary tale of vengeance when a violent oppressor reaps what he’s sown.

Through these stories, we see that the way we use language impacts our thoughts and, ultimately, our actions. The words we choose can move hearts to love and minds to open. Or, they can have dire ramifications. Our 2022 season invites us all to investigate the importance of authenticity. We hope you’ll come away from each play this season inspired to communicate clearly and courageously in your own life and filled with the joy of gathering again.
