From October 11-November 3, Alley Theatre will present Anna Ziegler's The Janeiad in the Nehaus Theatre. The play follows Jane, a woman who has spent 20 years longing for her husband to return to her after 9/11, a parallel to the way Penelope awaits Odysseus' return in The Odyssey.

Alley will usher in the holiday season with their annual production of A Christmas Carol, which will run November 14-December 29 in the Hubbard Theatre. Melrose, who adapted the beloved Charles Dickens novella for the Alley stage, will also direct the production. 

From December 5-24, Isaac Gómez' The Night Shift Before Christmas will receive its world premiere run in the Neuhaus Theatre.

Moving into 2025, Marisela Treviño Orta's December: a love years in the making will run January 17-February 2, 2025 in the Hubbard Theatre. Marcela Lorca directs the romantic comedy, which follows two Texans connecting over literature and music. 

From February 7-March 2, 2025, Theresa Rebeck's Seared will be presented in the Neuhaus Theatre. The play considers where art ends and business begins when it comes to the relationship between an up-and-coming chef and a consultant hired to elevate the restaurant. Weinbrenner will direct the culinary comedy.  

Tennessee WilliamsThe Glass Menagerie will be next in the Alley season, with Melrose directing. The classic play, which follows a family trapped in dreams and delusion, will run February 21-March 16, 2025 in the Hubbard Theatre. 

From April 4-27, 2025, Alley will present Ken Ludwig's Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery in the Hubbard Theatre. The fast-paced stage adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Hound of the Baskervilles will be directed by Eleanor Holdridge. 

Fresh from a spring 2023 world premiere Off-Broadway, Eboni Booth's Primary Trust will be the next production in Alley's new season. Niegel Smith will direct the play, which will run May 2-25, 2025 in the Neuhaus Theatre. Primary Trust follows Kenneth, a bookstore worker who has lived the same routine every day for the past 15 years, until he is forced to change up his routine. 

Closing out the season is Noël Coward's Private Lives, which will run May 23-June 15, 2025 in the Hubbard Theatre, with Sanchez directing. The comedy explores the consequences of love, desire, and the thin line between affection and animosity when two divorcees find themselves honeymooning with new spouses in adjacent rooms. 

Casting and creative teams for the season's productions will be announced at a later date.
