Upcoming: Jack & Jill by Jane Martin, Sustainable Theatre Project at the Hyde Park Theatre, March 18 - 27
is proud to announce its first full-length production, a very honest story about the ups and downs of falling in love:
Jack & Jill
by Jane Martin
Austin’s newest theatre company, Sustainable Theatre Project, begins its inaugural season with Jane Martin’s Jack & Jill: A Romance, winner of the 1997 Theatre Critics’ Association award for best new play. The first of a planned five-show season,Jack and Jill is a story about falling in love and the all the joy and heartache that follows. Jane Martin’s understanding of the complexity of being in love, her fair portrayal of both sides of the partnership and her stunning, roll-off-the-tongue dialogue make this modern, all but fairy-tale romance undeniably entertaining. The play’s relevance lands wholly as an honest portrait of the couple in love, fighting to be together and for a sense of self.
B. Iden Payne nominee Derek Kolluri and FronteraFest 2010 Best of Fest actress Molly Fonseca fill the roles of Jack and Jill.
Jack & Jill: A Romance runs March 18 -27, Thursday through Saturday, 8 p.m. at Hyde Park Theatre 511 W. 43rd, Austin, TX 78751. Tickets are $10 - $20.
