Iowa Stage Theatre has announced its upcoming 2021-22 schedule, and all five shows will be in person with full attendance at the Des Moines Civic Center’s Stoner Theater. Two of the plays, “The Cake” (Nov. 12-21) and “Sweat” (March 25-April 3, 2022), are rescheduled from 2020, when the pandemic sidelined live performances. Also on the schedule are Eugene O’Neill’s Pulitzer Prize-winning “Long Day’s Journey Into Night” (Feb. 11-20, 2022) and the premiere of “Girls’ Weekend 2” (April 29-May 15, 2022) by Iowa playwright Karen Schaffer.

During the holiday season, Iowa Stage will bring back a “It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play,” which tells the classic story via a re-creation of a 1940s radio broadcast. Find the full schedule and ticket information online.
