Hyde Park Theatre

Playwright Slam

7:30 pm, Wednesday, March 7, 2018


Playwrights and play-lovers! Join us at 7:30pm Wednesday, March 7 for the second Hyde Park Theatre Playwright Slam.

How does it work? Playwrights interested in participating can sign up starting at 7:00pm before the show. Beginning at 7:30, each playwright will have five minutes to read from one of his or her original plays—preferably one not yet produced in Austin. It's open mic-style: Show up, sign up and read (no ad-libbing or actors, please).

Our featured playwright this time is Lisa B. Thompson, an award-winning Austin-based playwright whose plays have been produced across the United States and in Canada.

This is a free event, open to the public, and it's lots of fun.

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.
