The fine folks of Paradox Players are getting ready to stage their latest production at Howson Hall Theater. This Friday is opening night for Guest Artist, by actor and playwright Jeff Daniels. The three person cast comprises Joe Penrod, Tyler Jones, and Craig Kanne; Karen Jambon directs the play.
It’s said that Guest Artist is the most autobiographical of Daniels’ plays, and the two main characters are playwrights themselves, one a young man trying to find his voice and the other an older writer who hasn’t written anything for years. Director Jambon theorizes that there are elements of Daniels himself in both characters.
October 14 – 30, Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 pm, Sundays at 3:00 pm
Howson Hall Theater, at the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Austin, 4700 Grover
