Received directly from Japhy Fernandes, Artistic Director of the Austin Drama Club:
The Austin Drama Club is proud to present its 4th repertory production of HENRY V by William Shakespeare, February 11, 12,13 and 25, 26, 27 in a new space that we are designing, inside The Community Renaissance Market located @ the corner of William Cannon and Westgate.
The following is an excerpt from an interview with rock n roll DJ Toby Ryan on 101x.
Japhy: That’s right.
TR: What happened with that? You guys did shows there from like ...since 2006....then you just disappeared over night.
Japhy: A disgruntled actor called the fire chief Mrs. Kerr and told her a very convincing story about how we were all gonna die in flames. Mrs. Kerr then asked us for safety’s sake if we couldn’t possibly find someplace else to do our plays. We said no problem.
TR: Wasn't the city willing to work with you?
Japhy: Yes they were, but we wanted to leave that old house anyway.
TR: Where did you go?
Japhy: To the country...southwest of town with the scorpions and the snakes.
TR: Why do that?
Japhy: The same reason why we do everything. For the glory! And because it's the only warehouse we could afford to move into.
