TWU Theatre, Modern Present “Daytime Drama”

4/23/04


FORT WORTH — Texas Woman's University and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth will present “Drama in the Daytime” at 2 p.m. Saturday, May 1 in the Modern Art Museum Auditorium, 3200 Darnell St. Events include a performance of the one-act play Cowboy Mouth by Sam Shepard and staged readings of four original one-act plays.

Cowboy Mouth spends a day in the life of Slim and Cavale, a man and woman caught up in a lurid affair held together by the sinewy strings of sex, drugs, and rock and roll. Touted as one of Sam Shepard’s most autobiographical works, Cowboy Mouth explores the spontaneous nature of the physical mind in one act. Directed by TWU graduate student Jeff Winkler, it features Jaymes Gregory of Haltom City as Slim, Keri Sternin of Pilot Point as Cavale, and Lorenzo Hernandez of El Paso as The Lobster Man.

Following Cowboy Mouth, TWU presents four shorter one-acts, each an original work.
Dream House, by Ruth Engel of Keene, is a pop-culture tragedy about the ending of an era. 9 Minute Ride by Lorenzo Hernandez deals with issues of terrorism in an innovative way. In Mama, by Veronica Parrish-McGruder of Irving, a parent learns from a child the value of education. Public Domain, by Dennis Sloan of Denton, examines the often fatal union of art and celebrity.

The original pieces are produced by Michael Scudday a TWU visiting assistant professor in drama. TWU playwriting instructor Natalie Gaupp will lead a question and answer discussion following the readings.

The two-hour program is free to the public. For more information, call the TWU Department of Drama at (940) 898-2518.
