    Book of Will

    Lauren Gunderson's excellent comedy features William Shakespeare's friends and fellow actors in The King's Men company doing whatever it takes to make sure that true versions of the Bard's plays survive – by compiling the First Folio, thwarting all the tailcoat-riding bastardized versions, faithfully recapturing the words that shaped their lives. Directed by Lara Toner Haddock for Austin Playhouse. And, prithee, what did our reviewer think of the show?

    Outside Mullingar

    What's outside Mullingar? Well, for one thing, two introverted thirtysomething misfits named Anthony and Rosemary, in this Tony-nominated play by John Patrick Shanley (the author of Doubt and Moonstruck, no less).

    The Divine Narcissus

    This is paper chairs' new adaptation of Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz’s, El Narciso Divino, reimagined by Austin playwright Elizabeth Doss, exploring an uncanny allegory that blends Greek myth and the Bible into a new world in which "canonical narratives are deconstructed and reimagined to create an immersive and wholly original theatrical experience." Witness a pageant put on by “Paganism” and “The Church," and a shepherdess (aka Human Nature) searching for her long-lost love.
    June 20-30. Thu.-Sun., 8:30pm. $15-30.
