2019-2020 HPT Season


Hot Dogs at the Eiffel Tower
by Maggie Gallant
September 5 - October 5, 2019

Fresh from the Winnipeg Fringe, written and performed by Maggie Gallant. What kind of parent KNITS their daughter a wool swimsuit? Or gives her a briefcase for her 11th birthday? Or keeps her in the dark about where she came from? British comedian Maggie Gallant shares her childhood embarrassments and adulthood discoveries as she unleashes a Pandora's Box of hope, lies, and un très magnifique French Papa! "Funny, French, and fantastic" - Theater Jones, Dallas; "Charismatic quirkiness" - Austin Chronicle

by Daniel MacIvor
February 27 - March 28, 2020

The long-awaited return of this wildly popular one-man show starring Ken Webster, originally produced by HPT in 1999, 2001, and 2009. Victor, the hero of Daniel MacIvor's dark and furiously funny piece, takes you on a whirlwind tour of the offices, circus tents, supermarkets, Ramada Inns, sewers, dreams, and houses that compose the hallucinatory landscape of his life. The Austin American Statesman: "Roaring laughter one moment and stunned silence the next. Webster knows how to grab an audience and hold them until right before they burst. . . . House is a brilliantly crafted, imaginative work that Webster takes to the edge of perfection in his portrayal." Tickets on sale now.
