Excerpt from the article:

 Tony Taccone, artistic director of the Tony Award-winning Berkeley Repertory Theatre, has announced the lineup of works for the company's 2013-14 season, which will include the world premiere of Marcus Gardley's The House That Will Not Stand and the acclaimed drama Tribes, among others.

 "This mix of shows looks at love and family through comic and tragic lenses, which reveal and revel in our historical moment," said Taccone in a statement. "The season blends seminal works from prominent artists – The Intelligent Homosexual’s Guide to Capitalism and Socialism with a Key to the Scriptures by Tony Kushner, Dario Fo's Accidental Death of an Anarchist, and Tristan & Yseult from Emma Rice and Kneehigh – with compelling new plays from vital new voices, such as Nina Raine'sTribes and Marcus Gardley's The House That Will Not Stand. Add to that The Pianist of Willesden Lane in which Mona Golabek's musical talents take us to a place that transcends words, and we hope to bring our audience on another extraordinary journey."
