NEW SHOW ADDED: This show has been selling out nearly every night, so w've added an additional show Wednesday, June 19.

And see the lovely Austin Chronicle review that assures you "audiences won't walk away hungry."

The meaning of life may very well be found on aisle four, behind the canned tomatoes. In this funny and all too real play, three very distinct individuals intersect in their one shared space: the grocery store. Texans get it!

The production features Kenah Benefield, Janelle Buchanan, and Giselle De La Rosa and is directed by Ken Webster.

My H.E.B. is a longer version of the legendary Best of FronteraFest winner by Raul Garza. Garza is the author of Confessions of a Mexpatriate and Running Bear, both produced by at HPT, and many other critically acclaimed plays including Fantasmaville and There and Back.
