Written by Bruce Graham, Directed by Malinda L. Beckham

Illiterate yet affable, Bobby Reyburn loves to do impressions and watch soap operas. He’s also a member of the Aryan nation sitting on death row, convicted of an unimaginable hate crime. John Brennan is an articulate, well-educated convict and editor of the prison newspaper, The Death Row Advocate. Following executions, John publishes obituaries that tell the stories of the executed but never mentions the crimes committed. John's writing draws national attention and the interest of a journalist who wants to do a story about him. As each awaits his final fate under the watchful eye of their female guard, they confront, comfort, and change each other. Inspired by the story of a real-life Texas death row inmate, Coyote on a Fence explores the questions: Can one be redeemed in the final hours of life? Is everyone redeemable even if they aren’t seeking redemption?Read more

With true fanfare, Gente de Teatro is celebrating its 27th season with Julián Quintanilla’s Spanish version of the world acclaimed comedy TOC TOC by French playwright Laurent Baffie.

TOC TOC is a hilarious play dealing with a serious topic in a humorous vein: Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). “TOC” is the Spanish Acronym for OCD. Six characters displaying certain signs of OCD are in the waiting-room of a renowned psychiatrist, a specialist in the treatment of the disorder. Because the doctor is late, however, these potential patients are about to embark on a new journey. Without either the expert or the expertise, and amid roaring bouts of laughter from the audience, they will attempt to create a therapeutic group of their own to help one another control their symptoms. The result is a play that is uproariously upbeat, yet the humor never offends.Read more

Often the two pairs of footprints dwindle to one; God is carrying us. The composer draws on universal elements exploring the vastness and timelessness of the universe.Read more
