Paper Chairs presents Woodwork: A Collection of Hank Schwemmer Plays
Paper Chairs enthusiastically announces our fourth production, Woodwork: A Collection of Hank Schwemmer Plays. Long time favorite of Frontera Fest and Austin Script Works, local playwright Hank Schwemmer has devoted over fifteen years to crafting singular theatrical experiences that supersede most fringe theater's penchant for experimentation. While Schwemmer may be a veritable master of self-producing, Paper Chairs unanimously agreed a fully realized production of his work was long overdue. Over several months, the company selected a handful of Schwemmer's unique offerings that together create a surprising world filled with peculiar characters in far-out circumstances, but consistently hit staggeringly close to home. Suspense will build through dark revelations in The Oracle Game. Puzzles will fall like snowflakes in Ballet for Dog and Red-Haired Girl. Outlandish fantasies will entertain in My Dream Date with Laurie Anderson. In less than two hours, six plays by Hank Schwemmer promise a cohesive smattering of everything.  

Paper Chairs is excited to break ground in a new performance space: Delta Millworks, on East Fifth across the street from Justine's Brasserie. A carpenter by trade, Schemmer's work will feel right at home in the evocatively vast and shadowy woodshop.

Paper Chairs has assembled a top-notch team to bring Woodwork to life.  Collaborating directors Kelli Bland, Keri Boyd, Elizabeth Doss and Lisa Laratta (also delivering scenic design) will integrate the evening piece by piece. Austin's outstanding Natalie George will design lights with Adam Hilton on sound and costumes by Georgia Young. The sharp cast features Sonnet Blanton (Baal), Zac Crofford (Riddley Walker), Chase Crossno (Machinal), Mark Stewart (Hillcountry Underbelly), Emily Tindall (Hillcountry Underbelly), Hugo Vargas- Zesati (69 Love Scenes), and Noel Gaulin (I've Never Been So Happy.)

Opening Friday February 17th and running Thursday- Sunday at 8pm through Sunday March 4th. Friday- Sunday: sliding scale $15-$25.  Thursdays pay-what-you-want.

SATURDAY Feb 25th - The Quick Draw Photo Booth will be at Woodwork!!! The Quick Draw Photo Booth is a portable, interactive, portraiture performance - a variation of the classic photo booth with some unexpected twists that invite people to become a part of the creative experience.

Other perks include: concessions of locally made delectable fare and spiked hot cider, studio art by fellow woodworkers, and more.  

Paper Chairs promises yet again another unforgettable evening of locally crafted theatre.  Don't miss Woodwork.
