Hunter Gatherers

Peter Sinn Nachtrieb’s farce Hunter Gatherers is about modern couples — and it isn’t. Pam and Richard are having their friends Wendy and Tom over for their yearly get-together. Things start off normally enough; there’s the usual animal sacrifice, then some sex, a little violence, a bit of dancing and a round of wrestling. Just the same old, same old. The play has been called “a no-taboos comedy of contemporary manners.” In press materials, Catastrophic Artistic Director Jason Nodler, who directs Hunter, says “This play is truly ‘catastrophic’ theater. No play I’ve ever read has addressed the struggle between civilized society and the animalistic nature…in as hysterically funny a fashion as Hunter Gatherers.”

This production is not only the kickoff to the Catastrophic Theatre’s second season, it also marks a new partnership between CT and Stages Repertory Theatre (CT will produce three shows at Stages this year: Hunter Gatherers, The Tamarie Cooper Show: Journey to the Center of My Brain (In 3D!) and Life Is Happy and Sad.) Hunter Gatherers is at 8 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays. Through April 11. For information, call 713-527-8243 or visit Pay-what-you-want.

Wednesdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: March 25. Continues through April 11, 2009
