Snow White Donald Barthelme

"Snow White is tired of being "just a horsewife" to Bill, Dan, Edward, Hubert, Henry, Clem and Kevin, who, in her estimation, "only add up to the equivalent of about two real men." While the seven men toil in commercial real estate and manufacture exotic high-end baby foods, she whiles away her days reading Mao Tse-tung, drinking vodka with orange juice, and impatiently waiting for the prince promised to her by history."

The Catastrophic Theatre is proud to announce the World Premiere production of Snow White on April 7th, a theatrical adaptation of the groundbreaking, experimental novel by iconic, postmodern novelist and poet Donald Barthelme. The play will be produced in association with the Barthelme Estate, Brazos Bookstore, InprintUniversity of Houston Libraries and University of Houston Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts. The singular novel was adapted for the stage by Barthelme himself but has never been shared with the public until now. This is a passion project for Catastrophicfavorite Greg Dean, who is directing from Barthelme’s adaptation and notes.

Snow White runs Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, 8 pm, from April 7 - May 6, 2017, at The Match, 3400 Street. For tickets and information click here
