Season 13: Get Lucky

Each one of the five extraordinary plays in PURE Theatre’s Season 13 offers a unique perspective on what it means to be lucky, whether or not we are ever truly prepared, and what happens when we miss or can’t act on the opportunities before us. Season 13 is smart, engaging, dynamic theatre, and we are thrilled to share it with you in 2015–2016.

Failure: A Love Story at PURE Theatre


Failure: A Love Story by Philip Dawkins

Directed by Rodney Lee Rogers


Nov 6 – Nov 28, 2015

FAILURE: A LOVE STORY is a fantastical tale of the three Fail sisters and their disparate and luckless journeys through life and towards love. PURE + Halsey: The COLLABORATION will afford director Rodney Lee Rogers and exhibiting artist Susan Klein the opportunity to work in concert on the stage at PURE and the gallery at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art. While visual artists have been known to dabble in stage design and theatre companies have occasionally staged a gallery sited performance, collaboratively creating both an exhibition and a theatre production remains rare. We couldn’t be more thrilled to bring to you another Charleston first!

2015 Tony Nominee for Best Play


Rapture, Blister, Burn by Gina Gionfriddo

Directed by Cristy Landis

Sep 11, 2015 – Oct 2, 2015

This whip-crack comedy takes a look at Catherine and Gwen, who, after grad school, chose polar opposite paths and now, decades later, are unfulfilled in polar opposite ways. Each woman covets the other’s life, commencing a dangerous game of musical chairs—the prize being Gwen’s husband. With searing insight and trademark wit, this comedy is an unflinching look at gender politics in the wake of 20th-century feminist ideals.
