11/28/07 - 8PM - Off Center - Harry Ransom Center Presents an Evening with the Rude Mechanicals

The Rude Mechanicals' Kirk Lynn and University of Texas at Austin Professor of Theatre Charlotte Canning discuss collaboration between playwrights and directors in "An Evening with the Rude Mechanicals." A performance of scenes from The Method Gun, a work-in-progress inspired by acting teacher Stella Adler, follows. The program begins with a moderated discussion about the relationship between the Rude Mechanicals' current project, The Method Gun, and the Ransom Center's exhibition Rehearsing the American Dream: Arthur Miller's Theater. Then members of the cast of The Method Gun will perform various scenes from the work-in-progress. The program will end with a dance number based on the drinking of rum cocos in Tennessee William's Night of the Iguana, and drinks will be served to the audience during a question-and-answer period. Tickets can be reserved by emailing tickets@rudemechs.com
