Artists Repertory Theatre announces its 2012/13 season's play selections: And So It Goes… by Aaron Posner, adapted from Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.; Seven Guitars by August Wilson; Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Christmas Carol by John Longenbaugh; The Lost Boy by Susan Mach; Red Herring by Michael Hollinger; The Invisible Hand by Ayad Akhtar; Ten Chimneys by Jeffrey Hatcher; and the Fowler-Levin Prize Award-winning New Play Commission by Andrea Stolowitz.
This is Producing Artistic Director Allen Nause's last year at the helm of play selection after 25 years. "This is a season with a lot of heart," Nause says. "This season continues Artists Rep's commitment to new, challenging, vibrant work with three world premieres along with West Coast and Portland premieres. We continue our journey exploring the human condition, the human heart, with plays set over the course of a century, through these eight, distinct, quintessentially 'Artists Rep' premiere plays."

Can we ever protect ourselves from the idiocy of our hearts?
Down a well-worn path, hand-in-hand, take a walk…through leaves and over bridges, breathe in the soul's seductive moments of mythological small-town America. It's 1962 New England when we join Tom, our 'Homo Eros' tour guide, for a stroll with a host of hearts just like our own. Along the circuitous course of Love we travel with our new friends hoping to catch a genuine glimpse of humankind's most elusive sentiment in the wonderfully flawed characters muddling along before us. This quirky love letter to the human race flows from Vonnegut's first collection Welcome to the Monkey House.
