Fat Pig
by Neil LaBute

directed by
Christina Hauger

August 22-25

7:00 PM
Thursday, Friday, & Saturday

2:00 PM
Sunday
2013

 

Cow. Slob. Pig. How many insults can you hear before you have to stand up and defend the woman you love? Tom faces just that question when he falls for Helen, a bright, funny, sexy young woman who happens to be plus sized-and then some. Forced to explain his new relationship to his shallow (although shockingly funny) friends, finally he comes to terms with his own preconceptions of the importance of conventional good looks.

Neil LaBute's sharply drawn play not only critiques our slavish adherence to Hollywood ideals of beauty but boldy questions our own ability to change what we dislike about ourselves.

 

Coyote on a Fence
by Bruce Graham

directed by Troy Haas

 November 14-17

2013

 

 

"Does a lousy upbringing excuse heinous crimes? Is there room for mercy and repentance within the judicial system? And if Americans really knew the inhabitants of death row, would they want to see them die?

Worthy questions…

"a provocative subject and a literate sensibility."
Variety

"The language is as precise as it is profane, provoking both troubling thought and the occasional cheerful laugh…[COYOTE ON A FENCE] will change you a little before it lets go of you."
Cincinnati CityBeat.

"…excellent theater in every way…"
Philadelphia City Paper.

Revenge of the Space Pandas
or Binky Rudich and the Two-Speed Clock
by David Mamet

directed by
Benjamin Crockett

January 9-12

7:00 PM
Thursday, Friday, & Saturday

2:00 PM
Sunday
2014

 

Binky Rudich, his friend Viv, and his almost human sheep Bob tinker with a two-speed clock with the idea that, as Binky says, "Time on Earth moves at the same speed all the time, but there is another speed, a slower speed, and if we could find it, everything would stand still on Earth and we would spin off." And they do! To Crestview, Fourth World in the Goolagong System, ruled by George Topax and guarded by the Great Space Pandas. The excitement really begins when the Supreme Ruler commands that Bob be brought to him, never again to leave Goolagong, and he steals the two-speed clock just to make sure. Only a very serious playwright could produce such an insane comedy!

This production will feature middle school students from the NEXTWAVE Educational Program

 

Proof
by David Auburn

2:00 PM
Sunday
2014

 

On the eve of her twenty-fifth birthday, Catherine, a troubled young woman, has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, a famous mathematician. Now, following his death, she must deal with her own volatile emotions; the arrival of her estranged sister, Claire; and the attentions of Hal, a former student of her father's who hopes to find valuable work in the 103 notebooks that her father left behind. Over the long weekend that follows, a burgeoning romance and the discovery of a mysterious notebook draw Catherine into the most difficult problem of all: How much of her father's madness—or genius—will she inherit?

Proof won the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play.

 

About The Underground At Annex Shows

Since opening as a black box theatre in 2007, The Evansville Civic Theatre Annex has been home to numerous plays and musicals that audience members wouldn't normally see on the Civic Theatre's Mainstage. Annex shows often contain adult material that some may find offensive or controversial, but are meant to explore a part of theatre that is both thought provoking and challenging. If you have any questions regarding the nature of a show, please feel free to contact the Annex Manager at (812) 425-2800.

Not every show is "just for adults" though! We are pleased to announce that the Civic's 2013-2014 Season will feature a special NEXTWAVE show meant for Middle School performers and families called Revenge of the Space Pandas written by David Mamet!

Underground shows are $10 for general admission tickets and can be purchased online or by calling the Evansville Civic Theatre's Box Office during regular business hours.
