Main Street Theater - A Wrinkle in Time

By Morgan Gould. Adapted from the book by Madeleine L’Engle.

In the end, we know two things for sure: 1) Love CAN overcome evil and 2) There IS such a thing as a tesseract. Performed by Houston-area students.Read more

Catastrophic Theatre - Snow White

By Donald Barthleme, Presented in association with the Barthelme Estate, Brazos Bookstore, Inprint, University of Houston Libraries, and University of Houston Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts

Donald Barthelme's Snow White is tired of being "just a horsewife" to Bill, Dan, Edward, Hubert, Henry, Clem and Kevin, who, in her estimation "only add up to the equivalent of about two real men." While they tend to their commercial real estate properties and manufacture exotic high-end baby foods, she spends her days reading Mao Tse-tung, drinking vodka with orange juice, and impatiently waiting for the prince promised to her by history. But her imagination is stirring...

“Donald Barthelme’s work creates the impression that something miraculous happened to him overnight—as if, blind from birth, he could suddenly see.”
