The Drama Club presents The Incident
The Drama Club will present a new work by Dallas native Terry Vandivort, The Incident, a harrowing, real-life account that begins on a cold night in Dallas in the late 1970s.
Inside Vandivort’s memories from 1979 are places like NorthPark Mall, The Crew’s Inn, and SMU’s Ownby Stadium, along with the scent of Mrs. Baird’s Bakery, the hustle on Harry Hines, and the shady characters lurking inside the Paris Adult Bookstore.
Deep in those memories lives the reality of a life-changing incident that would keep him always looking over his shoulder for years. A hot drug-fueled one-night stand became a collision course with a deadly stranger. After 37 years, Vandivort boldly reveals his true story of secrecy and terror, stemming from an unidentified man and the explosion of violence he brought. The chilling memories have haunted Terry year-after-year, decade-after-decade. A mystery. An unsettling, yet cathartic journey for the story teller and the audience. A raw, unflinching, darkly-poetic one-man detective story.
The Incident will run in repertory with a second production, Wild, Wicked, Wyrd: Fairytale Time. The two productions will have four doubleheaders, with discounted tickets available to see both back-to-back.
