Nigel O’Hearn’s THE ATTIC SPACE Opens 12/14 at the Salvage Vanguard Theater

Three years ago, when opening their inaugural season with Samuel Beckett's Endgame, Palindrome Theatre promised it would expire in December 2012. Seven productions, one international festival, and a heap of critical praise (mostly) later, Palindrome is set to do just that after their premiere production of The Attic Space, by Resident Playwright, Artistic Director, and native Austinite Nigel O'Hearn.

Known for their intimate, often provocative, traditionally-influenced aesthetic, Palindrome is building on the classical foundation and intricate theatricality of their past work to present this new play that is at once in keeping with the literary influence of Beckett and Miller while striving for bold, experimental presentation (including meta-puppetry directed by Caroline Reck, Artistic Director of Glass Half Full Theatre, and designed by Tara Cooper).

Directed by O'Hearn, starring Babs George and Ev Lunning Jr. (courtesy Actor's Equity), and featuring early Palindrome collaborator Helyn Rain Messenger, The Attic Space is an exploration of the capriciousness of memory, the complexity of companionship and the fear of uncertainty that accompanies the recurring life-long search for definite self-evidence; set in the place in our home which we visit the least, yet store all the things we can't bear to go on without.

When: December 14- December 22 8pm, Sunday 6pm, pay-what-you-can Wed 19th

Where: Salvage Vanguard Theater, 2803 Manor Rd. 78722

Ticket Price: $10 subsidized ticket price

Length: 80 min.
