In late August Shunya was in the final rehearsal for our production of Tanika Gupta’s wonderful play “The Waiting Room” and anxiously following the weather reports as Hurricane Harvey approached. You know the next part of that story: Houston was devastated and most of the city shut down. We made the decision to cancel the remainder of the run of the production after our opening night and reschedule. I’m happy to say we will be carrying on with the production October 26-29, 2017.
Shunya is an all-volunteer troupe, and we, like many small theatre groups in Houston, operate on a shoestring budget. The cancellations have affected us seriously and has essentially wiped out our budget. We only have one week to make up what would have been a two-week run, so I urge you to come out to see the production.
To give as much of an opportunity as possible, we will be packing 5 shows into 4 days: evening shows on Thursday and Friday, a matinee and evening show on Saturday, and a matinee on Sunday.
