Pillsbury House Theatre begins its 2011 season with an all "Pay What You Can" production of Nathan Jackson's Broke-ology directed by James A. Williams from March 11 to April 10. An innovative initiative funded with help from the Legacy Amendment, every performance of Broke-ology will be accessible to every audience member on any budget.

In May 2011, PHT returns to the Dowling Studio for the first time since its critically-acclaimed production of Blackbird in 2008. Obie award winner Marion McClinton directs In the Red and Brown Water, the area premiere of the first play in Tarell Alvin McCraney's epic trilogy The Brother/Sister Plays. Only 29 years old but already an important voice in contemporary theatre, McCraney is the international writer-in-residence at the Royal Shakespeare Company and a member of Chicago's Steppenwolf Ensemble. His work has been seen in New York, London, Chicago, New Orleans, Atlanta, Seattle, and Washington DC. In Red and Brown Water will be the first production of Tarell McCraney’s work in Minnesota. Parts 2 and 3 will come to Minnesota through Pillsbury House Theatre in 2012
