presents the Southwest premiere of

The Atheist
a dark comedy by Ronan Noone
directed by Ken Webster

February 18 - March 13, 2010

The Atheist is a wickedly funny dark comedy about a young journalist who is high on ambition and low on morals. Augustine Early is a reporter who will do anything to be famous, even if it means blackmailing a Congressman for a story that will make Augustine a star.

Joey Hood (Killer Joe, Bombs in Your Mouth, The Collection) and directed by HPT Artistic Director and Austin Arts Hall of Fame member Ken Webster (The Pillowman, Dog Sees God).

The Boston Globe called this show "viciously funny . . . especially to anyone who cares about the creeping power of tabloid values even in the 'serious' press.”

Curtain Up called it “a thrilling ride.”

Atheists, Christians, Jews, and Muslims will all find
The Atheist a savagely funny night of theatre. Tickets are $19 and $17 for students, seniors, and ACOT members on Fridays and Saturdays. Thursdays are pay-what-you-can.

Hyde Park Theatre is located at 511 W. 43rd. Tickets can be charged online at, or by phone at 479-PLAY.
