Hyde Park Theatre

Play Slam

8:00 pm, Wednesday, October 10, 2018


Another Hyde Park Theatre Play Slam is around the corner, just in time for the Slam's 1st birthday! Looking for an opportunity to share your work and meet other playwrights? Join us Wednesday, October 10th for this open mic event.

Playwrights are invited to read five minutes from an original play (no ad-libbing, no actors) before a friendly audience--trust us, it's fun. Sign ups start at 7:30, Slam kicks off at 8:00. As always, the Slam is free and open to the public.

Our featured playwright is the Austin-based playwright, director, and performer Patrick Shaw. His scripts have been produced at The Flea, The Drilling Company,Galapagos Art Space, Cherry Pit, Hudson River Guild, The Motor Company, Gorilla Tango, Bradley University, UT Austin, and CMPBS (Austin). He has developed work at the Great Plains Theatre Conference, Sewanee Writers’ Conference, the Millay Colony, and Norm’s Fish Camp. As a performer, he's collaborated with Underbelly, The Duplicates, Paper Chairs, Bakerloo Theatre Project, and Spessard Dance, among others. He co-directs Rude Mechs' Off Center Teens and teaches playwriting and directing at UT Austin.

Hyde Park Theatre is located at 511 W. 43rd Street. Covered off-street parking for the patrons of HPT is available during performances in the lot at 4315 Guadalupe Street, just north of The Parlor. You can drive through The Parlor's parking lot to reach it. Evening HPT parking also available at the Hyde Park Church of Christ on the northeast corner of 43rd & Avenue B. We are grateful to them both for their generosity.
