and Kyle Sturdivant as Trevor
Featuring a world premiere by Donald Barthelme, a Pulitzer Prize-winner by Sam Shepard, Houston premieres by Nick Jones and Mickle Maher, and a world premiere cabaret by Tamarie Cooper and friends.
The Catastrophic Theatre is proud to announce the World Premiere production of Snow White, a theatrical adaptation of the groundbreaking, experimental novel by the iconic, postmodern novelist and poet Donald Barthelme. The play will be produced in association with the Barthelme estate, Brazos Bookstore, and Inprint. The singular novel was adapted for the stage by Barthelme himself but has never been shared with the public until now. This is a passion project for Catastrophic favorite Greg Dean, who will direct from Barthelme’s adaptation and notes. The remainder of our 10th anniversary season includes Song About Himself, the latest play by audience favorite Mickle Maher, directed by Catastrophic artistic director Jason Nodler; Trevor, the first Houston production of a hit play by Nick Jones, writer of the popular TV show Orange is the New Black, directed by Catastrophic associate director Tamarie Cooper; avant-garde classic and Pulitzer Prize winner Buried Child by Sam Shepard, helmed by Catastrophic all-‐star Jeff Miller in his directing debut; and of course a brand new Tamarie Cooper musical—a whimsical cabaret about mistakes and regrets appropriately entitled Tamarie Cooper's Merry Evening of Mistakes and Regrets.
