Hyde Park Theatre presents

by Daniel MacIvor

8pm Saturday, March 28--on the HPT YouTube channel


Read all about this video presentation in the Austin Chronicle!

Some good news amidst all the bad: We had to end the run of House, by Daniel MacIvor, two weeks early in order to do our part to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

The good news: With the help of the generous & brilliant Eric Graham of IC Pictures, who directs, you can see a newly-shot video of the show at 8pm, Saturday March 28 on the HPT YouTube channel.

We were hoping to live-stream it, but the shelter-in-place order made that impossible--so we recorded it before order went into effect. But per our agreement with the playwright, we cannot leave the video up--so come Saturday!

And it's easy! Shortly before 8pm Saturday, just go to this link--or search for "Hyde Park Theatre" in your Roku or smart TV YouTube app—and select the House video. Then sit back and watch Ken Webster in a 65-minute roller-coaster of hilarity and astonishment and tenderness.

The show is free, but if you're in a position to kick in with a small donation we could sure use it. The donate link will also be in the YouTube description.

Stay safe and sane and as cheerful as possible. HPT loves you.

It's the long-awaited return of this wildly popular one-man show starring Ken Webster, originally produced by HPT in 1998, 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."

House runs at 8:00 PM on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, February 27 - March 28, 2020. Thursdays are Pay What You Can Nights at the door. The first four weekends (February 27 - March 21), Friday tickets are $24 and Saturday tickets are $26. For the final weekend (March 26-28), Friday tickets are $26 and Saturday tickets are $28. Tickets are $2 off for students, seniors, military, and Austin Creative Alliance/Austin Film Society members). Purchase tickets online or call 512-479-PLAY (7529) for reservations.

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.
