It's apprentice showcase season! Our apprentices are young professionals on the verge of starting careers as actors, directors, writers, stage managers, designers, and more. Their summer productions provide you one last chance to see them on home turf before they make their marks in the wider theatre community. First up in this summers Playground Series, showcasing PT's emerging artists, is Brandon Bate in HERE LIES HENRY.

"Here Lies Henry challenges the conventional relationship between actor and audience and spins it completely on its head in a powerful exploration of purpose and humanity."
"Going in to Here Lies Henry, it can take a while to get your bearings. But if you can manage to grab a hold of the rapid, train-of-thought narrative, you'll quickly be swept up and into the mind of an incredible character."
"Nothing is obvious; meaning is found in the tiniest things. Everything else is just posturing, lies. We are all the same, Henry says. We are born; we have some experiences; we die."
