AACC Presents A Staged Reading Of “Hurricane Diane”


AACC Theatre is presenting a staged reading of “Hurricane Diane” from January 19-20 in Anne Arundel Community College’s humanities room 112, Little Theatre. “Hurricane Diane” was written by 2019 Obie Award for Playwriting winner Madeleine George.

The story follows Diane (the Greek god Dionysus in disguise) as she returns to modern-day earth to help stop the effects of climate change. To do so, she must seduce four housewives in a suburban New Jersey neighborhood. In this Obie-winning comedy with a twist, Pulitzer Prize finalist Madeleine George pens an evisceration of the blind eye as people turn to climate change and the bacchanalian catharsis that awaits.

“Hurricane Diane” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French Inc. “Hurricane Diane” had its New York City premiere at New York Theatre Workshop in 2019, in a co-production between WP Theater (producing artistic director Lisa McNulty and managing director Michael Sag,) and New York Theatre Workshop (artistic director Jim Nicola and managing director Jeremy Blocker).

“Hurricane Diane” was commissioned and originally produced by Two River Theater (artistic director John Dias and managing director Michael Hurst).

Directed by Madeline Austin, the cast includes Eliza Geib (Beth), Leo Kubit (Diane), Mychael Lewis (Renee), Amanda Matousek (Pam), Jana Naylor (Carol) and Rachel E. Harris (stage directions).

The design team and crew includes Sean Urbantke (production manager), Maggie Urban (assistant production manager), Zachary Sexton (student sound designer), Nathaniel Wofford (sound technician), Aidan Henderson (student lighting designer), Ryan Brown (student lighting technician), Elaina Kohrs (student costume designer), Liz Fall (student stage manager), Andrew Agner-Nichols (student assistant director/assistant stage manager), Katie O’Neil (student scenic/props designer) and Michelle Hickman (costume advisor).
