Cap T Announces 2010-2011 Season

10 August 2010

October 2010

“Like a mash-up of the most brutal episode of Wild Kingdom and any episode of South Park.” San Francisco Bay Guardian

Hunter Gatherers

by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb

Directed by Mark Pickell

October 14-November 6
Hyde Park Theatre

Pam and Richard are hosting their best friends, Wendy and Tom, for their annual dinner get-together. An animal sacrifice kicks off the evening, followed by a little more sex, violence, deception, revelations, wrestling and dancing than previous years. A darkly comic evening where the line between civilized and primal man is blurred, and where not everyone will survive long enough to enjoy the brownies for dessert.

“Outrageously libidinous knockabout farce meets penetrating social satire in Peter Nachtrieb’s hilariously revelatory comedy, an almost two-hour laugh riot.”- San Francisco Chronicle

January 2011

Following up our recent hits of DYING CITY, THE BIRD and THE BEE, and I GOOGLE MYSELF

New Directions

January 2011
Directed by TBA

Our 4th year of offering a young director a chance to direct a play for Capital T

The New Directions program offers a young director with no professional credit the opportunity to direct a full-length play and bring a fresh new voice to Austin theatre while getting paid. The show will be fully produced by Capital T Theatre, and the director will have the opportunity to develop a piece of theatre that both reflects and contributes to the diversity of the Austin/Central Texas arts scene.

a Lie of the Mind

by Sam Shepard

Directed by Mark Pickell

May 12- June 4
Salvage Vanguard Theatre

Blinded by jealousy and rage, Jake believes he may have murdered his wife. While seeking refuge in the home of his abusively unstable mother, his brother Frankie goes to investigate and finds himself caught in the confusing currents of revenge and longing.

“Sam Shepard is surely the only dramatist alive who could tell a story as sad and frightening as this one and make such a funny play of it without ever skimping on its emotional depth.” The New Yorker.
