A Note from James Ijames about our 2021-22 Season

July 26, 2021


You look great! We are so excited to see you!

It is so wonderful to be welcoming you back to the Wilma’s stage, after a year of working remotely. We have done a great deal during this past year, creating digital productions while preparing for your return to our building.

The productions in our 2021-22 Season are plays that we had scheduled for previous seasons, or shows we had planned for a very long time. Our commitment to the artists working on those productions is incredibly important to us, which is why we are presenting these exciting works to you this season. 

As it happens, all of these plays take place inside family homes. After a long period of isolation, we are now entering the spaces of three very different families, and watching their lives explode out into the wider world. These plays are about communities facing moments of crisis; all explore important issues in daring, theatrical ways. 

Since you were last in our theater, we have made improvements to our physical facility, and taken steps to improve accessibility. The Wilma company has also done the important work of creating policies, practices, and procedures to make our organization more inclusive and equitable for all of our artists, staff, and audiences.

Thank you for the support you’ve shown us throughout the pandemic. I now invite you to purchase a traditional three-show subscription or flexible WilmaPass. You don’t want to miss this season. 

We love you, we miss you, and we can’t wait to see you in October for Minor Character.
