The North Plan is Street Corner Arts' return to the fast-paced, politically-charged world of Jason Wells, writer of their 2011 hit Men of Tortuga. This pitch-black comedy will have its regional premiere at Hyde Park Theatre (511 W. 43rd St.) in Austin, Texas from December 6 to December 21, 2013.

The North Plan tells the story of Carlton Berg, a bureaucrat for the U.S. State Department, who runs off with the top secret enemies list of a ruthless faction that has seized power in Washington creating a state of martial law. Unfortunately for Carlton, the chase has come to an end in a police station in the Ozarks town of Lodus, Missouri. With a pair of Department of Homeland Security agents on the way, Carlton's last hope arrives in the form of fellow prisoner Tanya Shepke, a motor-mouthed redneck who's turned herself in for drunk driving and has a penchant for raising hell.

The revolution will not be televised but it will have a soundtrack: Lynyrd Skynyrd. And it starts right now!

Street Corner Arts began with an idea (over a glass of good whiskey as all good ideas do): what if theatre could exist as a conversation between audience and actors, addressing current topics that affect the average person in an accessible way. That is the challenge which we always place before ourselves. By helping us to fund this project, you are becoming an active participant in that conversation. You are allowing us to continue to present collaborative, relevant, and engaging theatre to the Austin community.
