|About the plays in our season:|
Joyce and Phyllis, two women struggling to raise a son who may or may not have Asperger's Syndrome, must deal with a house guest whose nude photos of women feature prominently in a "body awareness" symposium, organized by Phyllis. This photographer intrigues Joyce, and repels Phyllis. Will this modern family survive their house guest's scrutiny?
This comedy (by the author of the sensational CIRCLE MIRROR TRANSFORMATION) asks the question: who is the toughest critic of a woman's appearance: men, society, or women, themselves?
BEYOND THERAPY is a madcap look at dating and psychotherapy in the 1980's by one of the funniest playwrights of our generation. It hasn't been produced professionally in Houston for several decades, and Stark Naked is proud to offer our audience a fresh look at the play that launched Christopher Durang's career.
Screw your courage to the sticking place and you may be able to weather Stark Naked's take on this bloodiest of all classics. Will there be blood? Absolutely, but it may all be in your mind.
Stark Naked is interested in presenting classic plays rendered in the intimate setting of STUDIO 101, highlighting our acting aesthetic. We've chosen MACBETH for our first foray into this arena, because of its unblinking look at the psychology of human ambition.
