Pegasus Theatre presents Fresh Reads: The Return, which celebrates new comedies with staged readings of three new works by Southwestern playwrights. The works will take audiences from 10th century Germany to present day West Texas to the future of robotics. The staging includes lights, sound, and costumes, but a minimal set.

Shows selected for Fresh Reads: The Return

  • The Art of Martyrdom by Rita Anderson - An irreverent behind-the-scenes look at Hrosvitha, the first female playwright. It is an exploration of how her “secret” plays got out and about the 10th-century nun’s secret playfulness. But, if the first female playwright of the Western world lived 500 years before Shakespeare, then why has no one heard of her?
  • The Robotics of Love and Longing by Germaine Shames - A quirky adult comedy about technology, taboos, and the lengths to which the human need for connection may drive us.
  • Mutability by Straton Rushing - A senseless crime gets committed in a rural, desolate corner of West Texas and the lone survivor is left to tell her story... but this is a comedy so it is actually about grief, fear, and the slow undignified economic death of rural America which will be explored with heart and humor.
