Mildred's Umbrella to Present RED DEATH, 10/9-25

Mildred's Umbrella Theatre Company presents the Houston premiere of RED DEATH by Lisa D'Amour, October 9-25, 2014 at Studio 101, 1824 Spring Street, Houston, TX 77007. Directed by Mildred's Artistic Director, Jennifer Decker, the play will be the 45th production from this quirky, innovative company.

Jane Whithers, an erstwhile kindergarten teacher/lifeguard has been sent to find the "origin of evil, the root of denial and the basic human weakness that causes us to fear death" by a mysterious extra-legal organization called "The Panel." Her search takes her from Florida beaches to Texas sewers, from the Adriatic Sea to little Grass Lake, Michigan all on the heels of Propsero Albright, a childhood friend who she thinks holds the answer. Inspired by Poe's gothic fantasy The Masque of the Red Death, D'Amour crafts a dark and comic rollercoaster ride through our existential dilemmas, everyday fears and ever-present anxieties.

WHEN: October 9-25, 2014, Thursdays-Saturdays. All shows at 8pm. NO LATE SEATING.

PRICE- $20 general admission/ $12 Students, Seniors, and "Industry."

Pay What You Can Monday, October 20, 2014.
