A small ragged house stands perched on a fault, pressed between the redwoods and Pacific Ocean. The Davies family resides within, holding together and splitting apart.
The Fault includes mature language and adult content.
About the playwright Katie Bender is a playwright, performer and third-year master of fine arts candidate in playwriting at The University of Texas at Austin. Her plays are irreverent, fun and magical, exploring characters and worlds at the edge of what is possible.
She is a founding member of Underbelly – a theatre collaborative that stages immersive journey plays in forgotten spaces, riffing on American classics. Underbelly’s devised piece Slip River premiered at the 2013 Cohen New Works Festival. Created in collaboration with playwrights Gabrielle Reisman and Abe Koogler, Slip River won the Austin Critics’ Table Award for Best Comedy of 2013.
As a performer Bender recently appeared in the regional premiere of Lisa D’Amour’s The Cataract and the world premiere of Tom Horan’s Static.
