Public Property

November 6-7
at Pease Park


Free & open to public! RSVP via salvagevanguard.org

Pease Park Conservancy & Salvage Vanguard Theater, with support from Hyde Park Theatre, present a workshop production of Public Property by Laura Neill, directed by Braxton Rae. Three performances will be held: 5pm November 6 and 1pm and 5pm November 7, all at the Live Oak Meadows in Pease Park, 2208 Parkway, Austin TX.

A ninety-minute play written specifically to be performed in Live Oak Meadow, Public Property follows the stories of twenty-one park-goers and their relationships to the past, present, and future of the park. It will be performed by an ensemble of actors who represent the many histories of Texas.

Public Property: that's what a park technically is. But everyone who spends time at the park has their own individual story of that place, a belief that this land belongs to them. When part of the meadow is closed down, what happens to all the overlapping stories that have been interrupted?

Featuring performances by Kim Carlson, Sarah Chong Harmer, Kairos Looney, Allen Porterie, and Minerva Villa, with stage management by Morgan Randall

We invite you to pack a picnic (no glass please) and join us in collectively reflecting upon the complex histories of Austin against the backdrop of Live Oak Meadow. Please come vaxxed with a mask on hand. Chairs are provided; however, all are welcome to bring your own lawn chair or blanket.

This event is free and open to the public. All donations will be split between the Indigenous Culture Institute and Austin Justice Coalition.

Public Property was a 2021 finalist for Hyde Park Theatre's New Play Workshop and was developed with support from ScriptWorks Groundwork Grant and Revision Resource funding. Find more information about ScriptWorks at www.scriptworks.org.
