June 9, 8 p.m.

Folks who missed it (and many who saw it) asked if I'd do another run. Since I'm writing and preparing to rehearse the sequel, DINNER IN DUBAI, this is a one-off performance to "catch you up."

Your last chance to see actress/storyteller Bernadette Nason's award-nominated one-woman show TEA IN TRIPOLI before she brings you the sequel!

Once upon a time, between the Mediterranean Sea and the Sahara Desert, in a land of sundrenched beaches, swaying palms and crumbling Italian villas, lived a naive Englishwoman...

In an unusual blend of storytelling and stand-up, actress/storyteller Bernadette Nason shares life in Libya c. 1984, from home-made hooch and crazy expatriates to confrontations with the Morality Police.

  • "What a delightful evening! Bernadette Nason is one of Austin's best story tellers and this evening is witty, tender and so informative. Try not to miss this lovely event. You will be amazed at what her experiences in Libya reveal." (5 stars)  Road Warrior, Reviewer, NowPlayingAustin.com

  • "In TEA IN TRIPOLI, Austinites get to see for themselves why Nason is heralded as one of the best storytellers in the city, as she gives us a story that is at turns gripping, shocking, and laugh-out-loud funny, but one that never feels unbalanced. It was hands-down the stand out production at this year's Summer Acts Festival, and with any luck, it will take stages again soon."  Ryan Johnson, Austin Examiner
