Woodwork: A Collection of Hank Schwemmer Plays

Delta Lumber and Millworks, 4701 E. 5th, near Springdale (click for map)
Long time favorite of Frontera Fest and Austin Script Works, local playwright Hank Schwemmer has devoted over fifteen years to crafting singular theatrical experiences that supersede most fringe theater’s penchant for experimentation.
While Schwemmer may be a veritable master of self-producing, Paper Chairs unanimously agreed a fully realized production of his work was long overdue. Over several months, the company selected a handful of Schwemmer’s unique offerings that together create a surprising world filled with peculiar characters in far-out circumstances, but consistently hit staggeringly close to home.
Paper Chairs is excited to break ground in a new performance space: Delta Millworks, on East Fifth across the street from Justine’s Brasserie. Since he's a carpenter by trade, Schemmer’s work will feel right at home in the evocatively vast and shadowy woodshop.
Paper Chairs has assembled a top-notch team to bring Woodwork to life. Collaborating directors Kelli Bland, Keri Boyd, Elizabeth Doss and Lisa Laratta (also delivering scenic design) will integrate the evening piece by piece. The sharp cast features Sonnet Blanton (Baal), Zac Crofford (Riddley Walker), Chase Crossno (Machinal), Mark Stewart (Hillcountry Underbelly), Emily Tindall (Hillcountry Underbelly), Hugo Vargas- Zesati (69 Love Scenes), and Noel Gaulin (I’ve Never Been So Happy.)
Paper Chairs promises yet again another unforgettable evening of locally crafted theatre. Don’t miss Woodwork!
