    A War of the Worlds

    In Jarret King's comic and thrilling reimagining of a multimedia classic, Orson Welles and his radio troupe, the Mercury Theatre, are a group of Black artists fighting to hold their place at the CBS radio studio. "In the hope of securing a critical corporate sponsorship, Welles orchestrates a last-ditch ratings stunt that causes national panic and secures their undeniable – if infamous – place in media history." Damn, acclaimed playwright, just how many genres and tropes are you disrupting simultaneously with this ambitious project? Penfold Theatre's world premiere production – directed by Marcus McQuirter and featuring actors Marc Pouhé, John R. Christopher, Kenah Benefield, Yunina Barbour Payne, Dane Parker, Judd Farris, Zac Carr, and Sarah Byington – will answer that question as sensationally as possible.
    June 2-18. Thu.-Sat., 7:30pm; Sun., 5pm. $16 and up.

    Undark: A Radioactive Puppet Play

    Trouble Puppet, Austin's premiere troupe of object manipulators and societal provocateurs, returns with this tale of female workers manufacturing luminous timepieces and navigational instruments using the newly discovered natural wonder: radium. The case of the “Radium Girls” is a story of shocking criminal negligence and the perseverance of women against a misogynistic system, and you can be sure that Connor Hopkins and company, working under a grant from the Jim Henson Foundation, will bring this fraught atomic time to vivid half-life onstage.
