The Invention of Love
by Austin Shakespeare

Feb. 19 - Mar. 08, 2015

This beautiful play reveals the love of poetry and the Victorian struggle of a "love that dare not speak its name." The Invention of Love also features the rambunctious aesthete Oscar Wilde bursting on to the scene.


For the first staging in the Southwest, Austin Shakespeare offers a new production of Tom Stoppard's celebrated The Invention of Love. The professional company (Actor's Equity) brings guest artist Philip Goodwin back to Austin, where he played "George" in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Stoppard's Arcadia was one of the company's most the most successful productions.

Tickets are available at or by calling (512) 474-5664.

 UPDATE: Feature by Robert Faires, Austin Chronicle, February 19
