HPT 2021 New Play Workshop Winning Play Selection Announced

Hyde Park Theatre presents

Hot Dogs at the Eiffel Tower
by Maggie Gallant

June 5 - 19, 2021
(streaming archival performance)


Please join us on the HPT YouTube Channel June 5-19 for an encore video stream of Maggie Gallant’s hilarious, endlessly surprising, critically-acclaimed comedy, Hot Dogs at the Eiffel Tower—as brilliantly documented by Eric Graham of IC Pictures.
"A must-see. Gallant's utterly brilliant writing and performance feels like a privilege to experience. She effortlessly weaves together acceptance, family, belonging, identity, and how viewing your experiences through a humorous lens makes even the toughest situations a bit more bearable. You'll definitely laugh, you just might cry, and you'll never be so grateful for your run of the mill nylon swimsuit."
- Broadway World Austin

An "invisible, 10-foot radius of comedic energy seems to surround Gallant at all times . . . Under the direction of Hyde Park Theatre Artistic Director Ken Webster, the tale feels well adapted to Hyde Park's intimate stage, allowing Gallant's brand of slow-burn storytelling to ferment into a balanced blend of cheekiness and honesty."
- Austin Chronicle

Check it out begining at 8pm Saturday June 5 on the HPT YouTube Channel. It will be available to stream through 11:59pm on June 19.
