The University of Texas Department of Theatre and Dance Presents



created by Rude Mechs




When: Sept. 10 - 14, 2014 (6 shows only!)
Where: The Oscar Brockett Theatre
Tickets can be purchase here: Texas Performing Arts


We are thrilled to deliver the never-before-seen-in-Austin final version of our original play The Method Gun. The presentation comprises part of our stay as the Resident Theatre Company to UT's Department of Theatre and Dance, and we are excited to share this work with the students and our longtime friends and patrons outside the University.


The Method Gun saw its official premiere at The Humana Festival of New American Plays in 2010, after a 3-week residency there finishing the piece. Since 2010, The Method Gun has toured to twelve cities, including Brisbane, Australia, has been published in Play: A Journal of Plays and Humana Festival 2010 The Complete Plays. We look forward to bringing it back home to share its final incarnation with the people that helped us create it, our Austin audiences.


The Method Gun received creation and development support from Creative Capital Foundation, MAP Fund, The Orchard Project Theatre Residency Program, The National Endowment for the Arts, The Humanities Institute, The Harry Ransom Center, and The Long Center for the Performing Arts with its 2008 presentation.
