NOW AND THEN, AND AGAIN by Ramon Carver

Hyde Park Theatre, 511 W. 43rd St.
NOW AND THEN, AND AGAIN is a one act play with a cast of two actors and eight voice-overs featuring characters drawn from the memories and imagination of an 80 year old woman who is a retired college teacher/wife/mistress/mother/sister/daughter with an existentialist cat. Recovering from a fall, Sarah gathers her wits about her and mentally rehearses confrontations she will have with her family, herself, and her “ghosts.”
Dr. Ramón Carver has had two plays produced in Austin (WE HAD A GRAND TIME, DIDN’T WE, KID?, FronteraFest Long Fringe Festival 2013 and THE VILLAGE, Living Room Theatre at Atria at the Arboretum) and over ten shows produced elsewhere, including Off-Broadway’s Samuel Beckett Theatre, Charlie Chaplin’s West Hollywood CAST Theatre, San Francisco’s American Conservatory Theatre, and tours across the USA. He also has catalogue of other produced and/or published plays and musicals. A graduate of Baylor and the Yale School of Drama, he admits to being 80 fucken years old to startle people, not because he’s ancient, but because it amuses and/or shocks people to hear an 80 year old cuss. Retired from everything but playwriting and dramaturging, he is a poster boy for an Austin retirement community, Atria at the Arboretum.
