PENS & STRINGS in development...

ATL's Jeff Hernandez and Brad McEntire have been collaborating on an original one-act play for the 2009 FronterFest at Austin's Hyde Park Theatre.

The piece about a heart-broken writer, his ideas with ideas of their own and the exploration of the subtle differences between creation and manipulation will be directed by ATL Managing Director Ruth A. Engel.

The cast - just announced - will include Ms. Jamie Marchi, Ms. Rasa Hollander and Mr. Oscar Contreres.

We will be holding our first informal reading of the play October 26th with the full cast. Hernandez and McEntire continue to turn out drafts.
Details on the production, including performance dates and times, will be posted soon.

World Premiere coming in February!

Coming February 18 - March 7, 2009

The World Premiere of
HELLO HUMAN FEMALEA new play from the twisted comic mind of Matt Lyle

The playwright behind Bootstraps Comedy Theater’s 2007 run-away hit THE BOXER teams up with Audacity to present the world-premiere of his brand new play!

HELLO HUMAN FEMALE is set in motion when an online dating service connects Tamela, a guileless 37 year old virgin looking for love, with Dr. Gorn, an evil scientist with ambitions of world domination. Things don't go according to Dr. Gorn's dastardly plan when Tamela falls instantly in love with his henchman, Blork, a simple, misshapen creation of the evil scientist's. When Tamela takes Blork home to Mother, Blork is quickly sent away on what ultimately becomes a journey of self-discovery. The play follows Blork on his trek, with Tamela hot on his trail. HELLO HUMAN FEMALE is an odd and whimsical tale with the message that being full of love and kindness can make up for all of our apparent shortcomings.

Playing at Dallas' newest theatre venue, the Ochre House, 825 Exposition Avenue, Dallas. February 18-March 7, 2009. Directed by Audacity Theatre Lab Artistic Director Brad McEntire.
