Proudly based in Dallas, Texas Audacity Theatre Lab is a platform for the imaginations of a collective of individual theatre artists.

this is not the usual." That was director Brad McEntire's first thought after
reading LULLABY the first time. Playwright Greg Romero has endowed the piece
with its own original set of stage conventions, including how the actors engage
each other as well as with the audience. It creates its own world, shifting
back and forth through time, or even playing the same encounters over and over
through infinite possibilities. The piece is a nonlinear, almost cubist, view
of a relationship that begins with a Man and a Woman. They each breathe in the
possibility of a blank sheet of paper. The paper becomes a sailboat and their
breath becomes a journey over impossible distances. An exploration of what is
inside the human heart when a person falls in love with another equally and
beautifully broken individual.
