The Designated Mourner at Catastrophic Theatre

The Catastrophic Theatre presents
The Designated Mourner by Wallace Shawn, Directed By Jason Nodler,
January 5th through January 15th at The MATCH, 3400 Main Street.

“You see, I think we ought to be precise about facts—I mean, very, very precise about historical facts. Or I mean, for God’s sake, let’s try to be. Or I mean, for God’s sake, let’s pretend to be. Or something, anyway.” —Jack, The Designated Mourner

Please join us for a very limited run of Wallace Shawn’s fiercely urgent, frighteningly prescient masterwork, The Designated Mourner, a special, off-season addition for those that need it.

The Catastrophic Theatre previously staged The Designated Mourner in 2010, in a production The Houston Chronicle called a “quietly stunning realization.”

Although it takes place in an unspecified time and place, its themes are immensely timely especially right now, and Catastrophic Theatre artistic director Jason Nodler decided to offer a limited run of the play as a necessary add-on to the current season.

Dry Land presented by Mildred's Umbrella

by Ruby Rae Spiegel
October 20 - November 5, 2016

Mildred’s Umbrella Theatre Company continues its 2016-2017 season with the regional premiere of Dry Land by recent Yale graduate and Susan Smith Blackburn Prize finalist Ruby Rae Spiegel. Set in a high school locker room, the play centers on the awkward friendship borne out of crisis between two teen girls on the precipice of adulthood.

Amy and Ester are an unlikely pair – Amy is brash and blunt while Ester is the more unassuming of the two – who are forced together in trying to solve the problem of Amy’s unplanned pregnancy. The result is an honest, unflinching and often hilarious portrayal of teenage distress that has won accolades from critics and audiences alike.
