SHAME ON ME

doctor loveBY DILLON ROUSE

DIRECTED BY SHANE STRAWBRIDGE

OCTOBER 31 – NOVEMBER 3, 2019

STUDIO PERFORMANCE LAB

Meet Ryan, an aspiring writer, whose co-workers and patrons "inspire" him while he tends bar, checks ids, and cleans vomit in a seedy bar in Lubbock's Depot District. Ryan's less-than-ideal job not only fuels his insecurities, but, ultimately, confuses fiction with reality. When the characters in his stories come to life, forcing their agenda over his own, they challenge Ryan's naïve idealism, making him question whether he can accept people for who they are -- even if they aren't real.

*Performances of Shame On Me, not included in the subscription season, are free and open to the public.
