Nov 3rd- 19th 2011. Guest by Courtesy by Hannah Kenah and Jenny Larson

The story of two cousins. One is married, wealthy, and fancy; the other is single, poor, and drab. We find these cousins unfolding their bizarre
relationship over the course of a failing tea party. The cousins are little girls, society women, clowns, bitter rivals, and family. Will these women, hovering at the edge of sanity, go crazy in the end or instead manage to set the world on its head? Original score by Graham Reynolds.

January and February 2012 (dates tbd) WPA - Works Progress Austin.

Featuring the development of two Austin grown pieces: Pig Pile (working title)- a collaboration between playwright Sibyl Kempson, SVT, Rude Mechs, Physical Plant, and Rubber Rep. Set to premiere in the spring of 2013. And Séance (working title)- a séance re-enactment at the Eponymous Garden with the creative team of Sterling Price McKinney and Jenny Larson.

February 16th- March 10th, Civilization (all you can eat) by Jason Grote.

A man-eating pig, a showbiz sell-out, a daughter gone wild, and a comedian all dance around issues of violence, racism, sex, and just getting by, in this absurd reflection of American life. Featuring Florinda Bryant and Cyndi Williams. Directed by Jenny Larson.
