10 years of theatre in Austin

For 10 years, Trinity Street Players has been presenting FREE theatre to Austin.

2016 Season

Lone Riders

Lone Riders is a new work written by Carol Wright Krause and directed by Manuel Zarate that will be premiered as a Production Workshop at TSP in May! Lone Riders (remove apostrophe) straps the supplies to the horses, mules, and covered wagons begging the question, what stays and what goes? In a time of love, war and art, will the final frontier be a communal journey, or at best are we all just riding alone?

Cast of Characters: TSP is pleased to announce our cast for Lone Riders! Introducing Kimberly Barrow, David Barrera, and Renee Barnett in addition to TSP alum Evelyn LaLonde (Blood Brothers) and Steve Williams (Our Town)!

About the Author: Carol Wright Krause holds a PhD in Theatre from the University of Missouri. Her play Charlotte Cushman was produced by NYC’s Circle Rep Lab and Chicago’s SummerNITE. Her play The Car had a staged reading at NYC’s LaMama New Voices and has been produced in a number of college and community theatres, as well as the South Carolina Repertory Theatre. Her play The Dryad enjoyed a successful 2014 run at Barter Theatre. She most recently was selected playwright for the 2016 Winter Playwright’s Retreat with HBMG Foundation.
