AGE of Central Texas
In 2019, The Alchemy Theater staged a production of Waverly Gallery by Kenneth Lonergan, a poignant play that illuminates a family’s struggle with Alzheimer’s. The play provided the opportunity to partner with AGE of Central Texas to raise awareness of issues facing families who are struggling with dementia or Alzheimer’s. Literature, resources, and talk-back sessions with AGE staff members were a part of each performance.

Reverie Theatre Company - Outside Mullingar
What’s outside Mullingar? Well, for one thing, two introverted thirtysomething misfits named Anthony and Rosemary, in this Tony-nominated play by John Patrick Shanley (the author of Doubt and Moonstruck, no less). This is the Austin premiere of a very funny and heartbreaking love story, directed by Michael Cooper for Reverie Theatre Company and featuring live Irish fiddle music throughout.
