A crime has been committed.
The victim has a choice to make.
The criminal is waiting.
A shattering new play about one woman’s unspeakable decision.
HANG – an Austin premiere of a bold new play by debbie tucker green.
Horizon Line Theatre is producing debbie tucker green’s HANG at the Ground Floor Theatre October 3-19, 2019 for its inaugural production. HANG focuses on the aftermath of an attack on one woman and how it has destroyed her life and her family. Set “sometime soon” in a sterile government office, it explores a world where the victim has a surprising but disturbing decision to make about her attacker. The production features noted Austinites Nadine Mozon, Barbara Chisholm and Robert Faires.
The play premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London’s internationally renowned theatre for outstanding new playwrights. Time Out deemed it “Provocative, touching, darkly humorous … its understated power is remarkable.”
HANG marks the premiere of Horizon Line Theatre, producing powerful dramas that will rock your emotional core. Our plays are selected from the best “writers theatres” in the US and abroad and speak to issues that question our humanity and very survival. Our artists are a bodacious mixture of experienced professionals and emerging young talent. We believe our city is an extraordinary place with extraordinary people who deserve extraordinary theatre.
