âYou see, I think we ought to be precise about factsâI mean, very, very precise about historical facts. Or I mean, for Godâs sake, letâs try to be. Or I mean, for Godâs sake, letâs pretend to be. Or something, anyway.â âJack, The Designated Mourner
Please join us for a very limited run of Wallace Shawnâs fiercely urgent, frighteningly prescient masterwork, The Designated Mourner, a special, off-season addition for those that need it.
The Catastrophic Theatre previously staged The Designated Mourner in 2010, in a production The Houston Chronicle called a âquietly stunning realization.â
Although it takes place in an unspecified time and place, its themes are immensely timely especially right now, and Catastrophic Theatre artistic director Jason Nodler decided to offer a limited run of the play as a necessary add-on to the current season.
