Borderlands Theater's 2013-14 season includes a prize-winning premiere, a traditional Christmas pageant and a visit with poet Pablo Neruda.

The next season marks the company's 28th. Borderlands, founded by Barclay Goldsmith, has consistently been true to its mission: to produce new plays and plays that address issues of particular importance to this border region.

The next season:

• "Grounded" - Oct. 10-20. The George Brant play about an F-16 fighter pilot whose pregnancy ends her flying career, is the winner of the 2012 Smith Prize, given by the National New Play Network for new works focusing on politics.

• "A Tucson Pastorela" - Dec. 19-22. The holiday play has become a local tradition. It's done completely in rhyme and weaves in topical issues and local personalities.

• "Maria's Circular Dance" and "Trash" - Feb. 13-March 2. The plays are a collaboration with Mexico City's el Circulo Teatral.

• "Burning Patience" - March 27-April 13. The Antonio Skarmeta play, on which the Academy Award-winning "Il Postino" was based, is about a young postal worker who enlists the help of poet Pablo Neruda to win the heart of a woman.

Season tickets are $60-65 if purchased before July 1; $88 after that date. Call 882-7406.
