Stick Fly

By Lydia R. Diamond Directed by Kathryn Hunter-Williams

Family time can be sticky…

It was supposed to be a relaxing weekend, but when the LeVay brothers bring their new girlfriends to the beach house to meet the parents, mom’s MIA and dad’s acting weird. Family tensions erupt around the dinner table when old arguments about race, class, and family expectations are served up.

“This is a play that makes you feel. It’s a rare piece of writing that not only moves you, but flat out makes you laugh…No matter where you come from, or what you look like, this is a story for you because it addresses the human experience.”

In light of the Omicron COVID surge, and our interest to protect the health & safety of our patrons, artists, staff, and students for whom our theatre is a professional learning environment, PlayMakers Repertory Company will be requiring proof of COVID-19 vaccination (physical or digital copy) or a negative PCR test taken within 48 hours of a performance, along with matching photo ID. UNC-Chapel Hill students, faculty, and staff may present their campus One Card to demonstrate proof of compliance.

This change will be effective with all performances of “Stick Fly” and “Yoga Play” (Feb 23-Mar 13, 2022). We will be monitoring the latest guidance from state and University health officials for the remainder of the 21/22 season.

Mask wearing will continue to be required of all patrons, staff, artists, and students (except actors while on stage) in all of our indoor spaces. For a complete list of PlayMakers’ health & safety guidelines, please visit:


As we usher in a new year, PlayMakers remains committed to following state, industry, and University safety guidelines, and to giving our artists and staff the ability to get back to work safely. As part of this commitment, we are increasing the number of socially distanced performances for Lydia R. Diamond’s “Stick Fly”. The dates of these socially distanced performances are available Tuesday, February 1 through Sunday, February 6, 2:00 p.m. matinee

In addition, all performances will be capped at 300 person capacity. We are also increasing enforcement of mask wearing inside the theatre and lobby and continuing all of our health & safety measures implemented in the 21/22 season, including installing HEPA filtration units in our spaces, touchless ticketing, etc. Check out our FAQ page for more details.

If you would like to exchange your tickets for another date or section, please email our Box Office at or call 919.962.7529. There will be no fees to exchange tickets, and we will do our best to accommodate all requests, based on availability.
