PlayMakers to host 2015-2016 season preview June 11


Event includes Q&A with producing artistic director Joseph Haj


(Chapel Hill, N.C.—May 18, 2015) – PlayMakers Repertory Company will hold a special event to celebrate its upcoming 40th anniversary season, hosting a 2015-2016 season preview with producing artistic director Joseph Haj on June 11 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the Center for Dramatic Art at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.


Haj will reveal new information about the season, share his inspiration for the lineup of plays and take audience questions in an onstage conversation moderated by Frank Stasio, host of WUNC-FM’s “The State of Things.” A reception with food and drink will begin the evening, followed by the presentation in the Paul Green Theatre at 7:30 p.m., and will end with dessert in the lobby.


The theater promises a special look at what’s ahead for PlayMakers, and for Haj as he takes up his next position on the national theater scene. After nine seasons with PlayMakers, Haj will become artistic director of the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in July.


The event is free, but reservations are required, as space is limited. To RSVP, call the PlayMakers Box Office at (919) 962-7529.


Subscription packages for PlayMakers’ 2015-2016 season may be purchased by calling the box office. For more on the new season, visit
