“This clear-eyed comedy will lift your heart.”Time Out New York

Prepare yourself: in the parking lot of a mega craft store in Idaho, someone is summoning The Rapture. Samuel D. Hunter's heartbreakingly funny reckoning between a father and son will shatter your preconceptions about the sacred, the profane, and the secret lives of big box retailers.



“Packs a lot more wit than any episode of the past several years of Saturday Night Live.”The Washington Post

Laugh while you can 'cause things ain't gettin’ better. Next season, Woolly artists fly to Chicago to work with The Second City's classic comedy wizards in an unprecedented collaboration. Their mission? Bring back to Washington the most gleeful anti-holiday celebration of doom ever.




"Grote has made a name for himself in recent years with scripts that explode the boundaries between the ordinary and the chimerical, the political and the aesthetic, the intimate and the dizzyingly cosmic."The Washington Post

Does humanity have an expiration date? Six hungry city-dwellers scramble for sustenance in this scathing satire of American enterprise and ingenuity. But while they’re busy cooking up schemes for love and success, the beasts of agribusiness are closing in...



“Eat your heart out, Madonna”The New York Times

When aliens abduct a large drag queen and drop her in a teeny Garden of Eden, will she have enough room to fall from grace? International cabaret sensation Joey Arias and Obie Award-winning puppeteer Basil Twist team up for an eye-popping musical tour, from Genesis to risqué universes beyond imagination.







“Writing well is hard enough, but this fiercely imaginative dramatist has her English and eats it, too.”Time Out New York

Armageddon has hit, and all that remains is our nostalgia for a lost pop culture. In Anne Washburn’s riveting vision of post-apocalyptic America, survivors invent a new entertainment industry from the ashes of the old. With music by Obie Award-winner Michael Friedman, their enterprise gives redemptive new meaning to the pop hits and cartoon icons we can't live without.

"The end is only the beginning.

Woolly Mammoth’s 32nd Season delivers a big bang. Join us as we mine our collective visions of apocalypse—and all the drama, jokes, and dreams they inspire. Does our civilization have an expiration date? If so, what comes next? Following the revival of our smash hit Clybourne Park, it’s a season of brand new productions that take America to the edge of extinction and back again."

—Howard Shalwitz, Artistic Director
