Critics Rave About THE BROTHERS SIZE

“a timely and potent piece of theatrical magic”
– Austin American-Statesman

“DAMN, can these three actors tell a story”

– Central Texas Live Theatre

Critics Rave About HIR

“HIR upends conventions of gender and family with dark hilarity”
– Austin Chronicle

Jay Byrd, as Arnold, delivers a heart- breakingly sad and touching performance. Nate Jackson is wonderful as Isaac, as he valiantly tries to regain what has been irretrievably lost. Dillon Yruegas, as Max, is both funny …
