(promo video by Jose Lozano, Magic Spoon Productions)
A darkly comic southern drama about love, art and the power of healing. After a tornado barrels through North Alabama leaving nothing but death and destruction, only June and her wisecracking pet goat Weezy live to tell the tale. When Alice, a prominent photographer, arrives to take pictures of June’s scars, all are tipped to the breaking point in this beautiful story of life after death.
Directed by renowned Austin phenom Rudy Ramirez, Alabaster stars Lizzie Beckham (Duchess of Malfi, The Rover) as June, Shannon Grounds (The Revolutionists, Agent Andromeda) as Alice, Jennifer Jennings (Wild Horses, Agent Andromeda) as Weezy, and the legendary Jennie Underwood as Bib.
Alabaster features costume design by Pam Fletcher Friday, lighting design by Jen Rogers, sound design by Malyssa Quiles, set design by Alex Casillas, prop design by Cortney DeAngelo, and stage management by Monica Kurtz. This initimate portrait of art and the lost and tortured souls that seek to create it won the David Calicchio Emerging American Playwright Prize, was chosen for the 2019 Kilroy’s List, and has just been nominated for the Pulitzer Prize. Alabaster takes the stage at the Dougherty Arts Center February 20 – March 7 as part of The City of Austin’s Artist Access Program.
