DallasEcho Theatre, one of the country’s longest-running theaters that produces solely work by women, has announced the 2020 season. And it’s happening, at least in the first half of the year, in a new location while Echo’s longtime home, the Bath House Cultural Center, is closed for renovations (new restrooms, HVAC system, and more!). Echo is moving to the Lochwood Library Black Box theater for its spring production, and then back to the Bath House in the Fall.

The first mainstage production will be the regional premiere of Reina Hardy’s noir-inspired thrilled The Other Felix (April 9-25). In the September, Ann Timmons’ suffragette story It’s My Party is at the Bath House, which is also a polling location. (Vote!) It will be supported by the 19th Amendment Centennial Fund. It's My Party! was originally developed in conjunction with Pipeline Playwrights.

Echo Reads, the group’s reading series, will grow to 12 plays, happening at Lochwood, Arts Mission Oak Cliff and other locations. The readings happen on the third Tuesday and Wednesday of the month. The upcoming schedule is:

  • Jan. 21-22: Church by Young Jean Lee (Arts Mission Oak Cliff and Lochwood Library)
  • Feb 18-19: I and You by Lauren Gunderson
  • March 17-18: Do No Harm by Anyika McMillan-Herod
  • April 21-22: The Great Lonely Roamer & The Night That Changed Everything by Christina Quintana
  • May 19-20: Samsara by Lauren Yee
  • June 16-17: There Is Evil in This House by Natalie Nicole Dressel 

Artistic Director Kateri Cale notes that half of the 12 readings will be works by women of color.
