The Secretary
by Hyde Park Theatre

Jun. 23, 2017

A biting black comedy that turns "guns don't kill people, people kill people" on its head, when the guns at Ruby's small-town gun shop start going off--and no one’s pulling the trigger.

This Ruby runs a small-town gun company that aims to protect women by helping them protect themselves. But as production begins on the company’s newest model, guns start going off--and no one’s pulling the trigger.

The public is invited to this staged reading of The Secretary, by Kyle John Schmidt (whose shows make FronteraFest Best of Fest Week practically every year), which is the culmination of weeks of rehearsal for Hyde Park Theatre's 2017 New Play Development Workshop.

Directed by the award-winning Lily Wolff and dramaturged by HPT Literary Manager Megan Thornton, the cast of professional actors includes many of Austin's favorites: Lana Dietrich, Marie Fahlgren, Molly Fonseca, Anne Hulsman, Rebecca Robinson, and Jennie Underwood
