Hertz Series

The Hertz Series for 2017/18 won't be on our legendary Hertz Stage, but it will keep the ethos that this series is known for: cutting-edge, provocative work from some of the brightest minds in American theater. The Hertz Series includes this year's winner of the Alliance/Kendeda National Graduate Playwriting Competition at Actor's Express; a funny, scary, and Tony Award-nominated puppet show at Dad's Garage; and a powerful adaptation of Native Guard at the Atlanta History Center. See all three shows at all three venues for one low price and get all of the benefits of being an Alliance Theatre Season Ticket holder.

Hertz Series
presented by Turner

Fri, Oct 20 to Sun, Nov 12

Described as “darkly delightful” (The New York Times), Hand to God – the irreverent puppet comedy, Tony Award nominee, and the most produced play in American regional theater in the 2016/17 season – makes its Atlanta debut.

Sat, Jan 13 to Sun, Feb 4

First adapted for the stage by the Alliance in 2014 to sold-out audiences, Native Guard juxtaposes the deeply personal experiences of Trethewey, a child of a then-illegal marriage between her African-American mother and Caucasian father living in 1960s Mississippi, with the experience of a soldier in the Native Guard, the first African-American Union troop in the Civil War who was charged with guarding white Confederate captives.

Thu, Mar 1 to Sun, Mar 25

A suspenseful story inspired by true events that will leave audiences at the edge of their seats. Winner of the 2018 Alliance/Kendeda National Graduate Playwright Competition.


To mark the end of the Alliance Stage as we know it, and to welcome the new era with the start of the big renovation, Pearl Cleage, our Mellon Playwright in Residence, wrote a piece to commemorate this special occasion.

As a spunky gal in touch with nature in the kingdom of Kashoogie, India S. Tyree portrays a unique Cinderella in the world-premiere production of Cinderella and Fella. In between performances, India took a few minutes to give us the inside scoop on her role in the musical.

A quick glance at Magic Negro director Anthony LeBlanc's resume reveals a robust string of achievements likely to be the envy of any comedian in the business. One particular credit to his name may cause others to take pause: a Computer Science and Physics B.S. degree.
