Now Playing Onstage in Austin - Week of 2/09/2014 THE STRANGE UNDOING OF PRUDENCIA HART
Bass Concert Hall
2/11-2/15/2014
In recent seasons, The National Theatre of Scotland has sold out performances of Black Watch and Long Gone Lonesome. Last season, due to unforeseen circumstances, the company's engagement of The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart was cancelled. But because of audience demand, the production returns this season with a week of performances on the Bass Concert Hall stage. The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart is an evening of anarchic theatre, live music, and strange goings-on as Prudencia Hart, an uptight academic, sets off to attend a conference in Kelso in the Scottish Borders, where the folk-studies community has gathered for a symposium. Indulge in an evening of supernatural storytelling, music, and theatre inspired by Border Ballads, Robert Burns, and the poems of Robert Service. Filled with magical moments, devilish encounters, and wittily wild karaoke, The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart is moving and amusing, with plot twists unfolding all around you.

Mary Moody Northern Theatre
2/13-2/23/2014
Tartuffe by Moliere Translated by Ranjit Bolt February 13 - 23, 2014 Thursday - Saturday evenings at 7:30 PM and Sundays at 2 PM. Directed by David M. Long Masquerading as a man of God, Tartuffe has wormed his way into the affections and household of a rich merchant, Orgon, with pantomime piety and counterfeit zeal. So comprehensively has he hoodwinked Orgon that he looks set to succeed in driving away the son, marrying the daughter, seducing the wife and imprisoning his host. Moliere's classic satire was denounced on its first performance as a sacrilegious outrage and banned from further public view. This contemporary adaptation proves that hypocrisy never takes a holiday. "Astoundingly delightful." - New York Post

Oscar G. Brockett Theatre
2/14-2/23/2014
When Jean answers the cell phone of a recently deceased cafe patron, she holds on to the device to keep the man alive in a strange yet significant way. Jean's quiet life is turned upside-down as she's thrust into a world of mysterious strangers, shady business deals, and the potential for true love. A story about memory, redemption, and connection - and disconnection - in a technology obsessed world, Ruhl's comedy is a mesmerizing reflection of today.

This very funny, yet very touching play focuses on the lives of four men who live in a communal residence under the watchful eye of a sincere, but increasingly despairing, social worker.
