The Austin Community College Drama Department will open and close the upcoming Carnival ah! arts fest with B-Sides from the A-List, absurdist short plays by Ionesco, Beckett, Albee, and Pinter.

Professor Shelby Brammer, chair of the Drama Department, comments, “These playwrights changed the theatre as we knew it during the 1950s through the 1960s, and their effects are still profoundly felt in the theatre and in the culture-at-large – witness the phenomena of Lady Gaga. They are dark, funny, and often distill existence to its very essence.”

B-Sides will play at the Rio Grande Mainstage Theater (located on the second floor of the campus). The short plays include Salutations, directed by Ryan Manning; Rough for Theatre I, Act Without Words I, and Act Without Words II,directed by Jodi Jinks; The Sandbox, directed by W.T. Bryant; and Silence,directed by Arthur Adair.

Carnival ah! is an ACC Arts & Humanities festival showcasing live music, dance, theater, film, literature, and art. The events run April 16-24 at the Rio Grande Campus (1212 Rio Grande St. in downtown Austin).
