A diverse six-pack of plays, including the Seattle premieres of a lauded drama about Martin Luther King Jr. and David Henry Hwang’s recent tale of an American businessman trying to start up a new enterprise in China, will make up the 2014-15 theater season at ArtsWest Playhouse.

ArtsWest’s interim artistic director Annie Lareau selected the next season at the West Seattle venue, and will remain in her current position there through June. The ArtsWest board plans to post a job listing for a permanent artistic director position in the coming weeks, and make a hire this summer.

The 2014-15 lineup:

“The Mountaintop.” Katori Hall’s prize-winning two-hander about a fictional encounter between Martin Luther King Jr. and a mysterious woman, on the night before the civil rights leader’s 1968 assassination. (Sept. 11-Oct. 5)

“The Pride.” Alexi Kaye Campbell’s two-part portrait of shifting social and personal views of homosexuality in England, set in 1958 and 2008. (Oct. 23-Nov. 16)

“Judy’s Scary Little Christmas.” A campy musical by David Church, Jim Webber and Joe Patrick Ward, spoofing star-studded TV holiday shows hosted by Judy Garland. (Dec. 4-28, 2014)

“4000 Miles.” Seattle debut of Amy Herzog’s well-received Off Broadway play, about the relationship between a young man long estranged from his family, and his 91-year old grandmother, whom he suddenly visits for an indefinite stay. (Jan. 22-Feb. 15, 2015)

“Chinglish.” Hwang’s comedy portrays the cultural and communication gaps that plague a Cleveland entrepreneur on his first visit to China. March 5-29, 2015)

“Angry Housewives.” A revival of the Seattle-bred, long-running, hard-rocking 1983 musical by A.M. Collins and Chad Henry, about fed-up homemakers who form a punk band. (April 23-May 24, 2015)

Tickets and info: 206-938-0339 or artswest.org.
