Theatre Town Meeting
Speaking of Ehn, this is the first of several trips the playwright will be
making to Austin in 1996, not only because of the potential RAT gathering in
August but because he's been engaged by Frontera@Hyde Park to develop a new
play with them for production this fall. One wonders when he'll find time to
talk to the F@HP gang about it this weekend, however. In addition to his Friday
and Saturday night performances in Frontera Fest and his appearance at the
Theatre Town Meeting on Saturday afternoon, Ehn will be reading from his work
at Book People, Sixth and Lamar, on Sunday at 2pm.
Ehn Justifies the Means?
