Theatre: City of Good Abode


Presented with The Ensemble Theatre
Written by Joshua Ford

Martin Luther King, Jr., ASSASSINATED! Words that shocked a nation in April 1968. Now, through the powerful play, City of Good Abode, relive the story of the historic strike by Memphis sanitation workers that led to King’s death, all while exploring the relationship between America’s African American community and the nation’s Jewry, many of whom marched with their black “brethren,” while others’ support was less enthusiastic.

This winner of the 2017 Jewish Plays Project’s New Play Contest is being given its premiere in a special post-Labor Day full production.

The Glass Menagerie presented by 4th Wall Theatre Co.

4th Wall Theatre Co. presents The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams

Few American playwrights stir the
imagination of theater-goers quite like Tennessee Williams in this brilliant
classic. His semi-autobiographical memory play chronicles a critical few days
in the life of the Wingfield family and launched Williams to international
notoriety in the mid-1940s. This American standard continues to run to sold out
audiences across the country not only for its lyricism and beauty but also for
its unique exploration of family and personal expectations. 4th Wall’s
production will feature Kim Tobin-Lehl in the iconic role of Amanda Wingfield
and direction by Philip Lehl.

 

Any first row seat can accommodate
a wheelchair. Please contact info@4thwalltheatreco.com with any additional

Woyzeck inspired by Georg Buchner

Matt Hune and exciting young writer, Maurielle McGarvey have re-invented Büchner’s 19th century tragedy into a jaw-dropping thriller set in modern suburbia. Performances begin July 17 and continue through August 3 (see schedule).

Rec Room Arts’ 2018/19 season wraps up with the spellbinding adaptation of Georg Büchner’s Woyzeck. Artistic Director, Matt Hune and exciting young writer, Maurielle McGarvey have re-invented Büchner’s 19th century tragedy into a jaw-dropping thriller set in modern suburbia. Performances begin July 17 and continue through August 3 (see schedule).

Buchner’s achingly powerful tale—based on the real-life case of a mid-1800s German soldier who stabbed his girlfriend in a fit of jealousy—becomes an all-too familiar, yet disturbingly gruesome piece that spirals into the madness and messiness of isolation, technology, proximity, and identity. Rec Room Arts’ Woyzeck is part play, part dance, and part fever dream. This enticing new production is inundated with adolescent anxiety and lays bare the challenges of navigating first love. A summer production that can’t be missed. 
When:
Jul 17, 2019 to Aug 3, 2019
Cost:
Single tickets are now on sale and range from $15 - $40. They can be purchased at the door or online at https://www.recroomarts.org/woyzeck. All shows are downtown at Rec Room, 100 Jackson Street, Houston, TX 77002.
