Seattle Public Theater (SPT), which presents its productions at the Bathhouse Theatre at Green Lake, has set a roster of plays for next season.

The company opens with the Pacific Northwest debut of Jacqueline Goldfinger’s “Slip/Shot,” a drama about a white security guard’s accidental killing of an innocent young black man (Sept. 25-Oct. 12). SPT associate artistic director Kelly Kitchens directs.

For the winter holidays, the company plans an original Yuletide-themed mystery play scripted by Seattle playwright Wayne Rawley, also directed by Kitchens (Dec. 5-21), in rep with the family-oriented “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever,” which Seattle Public is producing for the 14th consecutive year (Dec. 4-24), staged by Emily Purington.

“Humble Boy,” an offbeat comedy by Charlotte Jones, set on an English estate and patterned after “Hamlet,” plays Jan. 29-Feb. 15, 2015, under the direction of Marcus Goodwin. That will be followed by Greg Pierce’s “Slowgirl,” about a young woman sent to live with her uncle in the remote jungles of Costa Rica (March 26-April 12, 2015).

The season closer will be Lanford Wilson’s well-known romance, “Talley’s Folly,” the Pulitzer Prize-winning two-hander in which a Jewish lawyer and a Southern Protestant “spinster” overcome family bigotry to gently woo (May 14-31, 2015).

Tickets: 206-524-1300 or seattlepublictheater.org.
