From the author of HPT fave House: this September, HPT revives one of its most beloved productions, Danial MacIvor's Marion Bridge, with the same cast and the same director. See the American-Statesman and Austin Chronicle reviews of our acclaimed 2002 production, which garnered Austin Circle of Theatres (now Austin Creative Alliance) Payne Award nominations for Ken Webster (Director) and for Outstanding Cast.
An actress who does Chekhov in Toronto basements and drinks too much; a nun who disapproves of big-city talk like "Whatever"; and their peculiar, soap-opera-watching youngest sister. Three sisters reluctantly reunite in this bittersweet comedy from the author of House and The Soldier Dreams.
Ken Webster, Hyde Park Theatre's Artistic Director, directs Emily Erington, Kelsey Kling, and Rebecca Robinson in this HPT production.
The show runs at 8:00 PM on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, September 8 - October 8, 2011. Every Thursday is Pay What You Can Night; Friday, and Saturday tickets are $19 ($17 for students, seniors, and ACOT members), except for the final weekend (August 4-6), when ticket are $21 ($19 for students, seniors, and ACOT members). For reservations, call 479-PLAY or purchase tickets online.
