Brad McEntire's newest play DINOSAUR AND ROBOT STOP a train will world-premiere at the 2013 Festival of Independent Theatres (FIT) at the Bath House Cultural Center June 7-22, 2013.
A press conference is held. A robot from the future and a dinosaur from the past address their experiences of being rudely sucked through time and space to our present, how they saved a little girl who had been stupidly playing in the path of a speeding train, and what they plan to do now that they seem to be stuck in the 21st Century.
DINOSAUR AND ROBOT STOP A TRAIN is a contemporary take on the Theatre of the Absurd from the 1950s with its broad comedy, touches of Vaudeville, mix of the horrific or tragic, characters caught in hopeless or confusing situations, dialogue full of nonsense, wordplay and repetition as well as a flat out parody or dismissal of realism.
The Bath House Cultural Center is located at 521 E. Lawther Drive, Dallas, TX 75218.
Performance dates and times are:
Friday, June 7 @ 8 PM
Saturday, June 8 @ 2 PM
Sunday, June 9 @ 5 PM
Friday, June 14 @ 8 PM
Saturday, June 15 @ 2 PM
Saturday, June 22 @ 5 PM

The reading of CAMP GIRLS AND GHOST MONK on Monday, April 8 went over really well. We got it on tape and will send the recording on to the playwright Matt Lyle. There was a small (maybe a dozen or so) audience. Not bad for a reading on a Monday night.
Special thanks to John Michael and Matt Tomvonovich of Nouveau 47 Theatre, Matt Lyle, all the actors (Jeff Swearingen, Natalie Young, Elizabeth Evans, Rhianna Mack, Becca Shivers and Ruth Engel-McEntire) and director Brad McEntire for setting the whole thing up.
