Rude Mechs: The Method Gun

Austin, Texas

 

"Charming... gorgeously rendered... both stunning and haunting." —Eliza Bent, American Theatre Magazine

"Honest, brave and often hilarious exploration of the creative process...absurd and awe-inspiring." —Erin Keane, Louisville Courier-Journal 2010

RADAR L.A. FESTIVAL

 

PRESENTED BY CENTER THEATRE GROUP
AT KIRK DOUGLAS THEATRE

 

The Austin, Texas-based collective Rude Mechs takes a wild and inventive look at the cult of acting in The Method Gun. Presenting themselves as the abandoned disciples of a questionable acting guru, the company attempts to realize their mentor’s vision of a radically reduced production of A Streetcar Named Desire. Shifting from the moving, if minimal, Streetcar to the methods of a company that is now the sole vessel of an acting technique called “The Approach,” The Method Gun follows a misfit ensemble as it courageously pursues its craft, touching upon the mechanisms of process and passion, doubt and devotion, in the pursuit of art.
