Red Hot Patriot 

Spend this election season with the story of the unsinkable Molly Ivins, the famously brassy newspaper columnist and best-selling author starring acclaimed national actress, Rhonda Brown. A true Texas original, Ivins was a sharp-tongued wit who skewered the political establishment with her unforgettable humor and wisdom. The play celebrates Ivins’ courage and tenacity and encourages Americans to become the citizens they need to be.

A talkback with Suzii Paynter, Valinda Bolton, and Rhonda Brown will follow Sunday’s 2pm matinee.

The Tiny Banger Poster

Red Hot Patriot 

Dope Fiend, Jailbird, and their son Tiny Banger are a homeless family trying to survive an increasingly hostile city illustrated by a contemporary spin on Charlie Chaplin’s Tramp archetype and film aesthetic. Pervasive perceptions about homelessness lead to criminalization measures that keep this family trapped in the cycle of homelessness and incarceration. As the silent film world strips away, audiences encounter the messy, complex world in which the family actually lives.

The Tiny Banger is presented as a Workshop Production of the new play by Alice Stanley.

Performances Dec 7, 8, 9, 13, 14, 15, and 16 are free and open to the public. Dec 17 is presented in cooperation with Mobile Loaves and Fishes. 

Additional performances will occur at United Methodist Church at 10am on Dec. 8 and at Community First Amphitheatre Dec 20 at 7:30pm.
