Stumps  | Open: 10/26/05 Close: 11/13/05
Two handicapped Vietnam veterans, Stephen Ryder and Jerry Marcus, want to make a high-class movie with explicit sex, a step beyond Last Tango in Paris. They elicit the interest of the young explicit film star, Fawn Sierra, who arrives in the hills of Austin for a meeting with her "manager," Calvin Rhodes, a "gentleman" who may be a minister or may be evil incarnate. Calvin's dark personality slowly emerges as he tries to wrest the project from the writers. Trying to keep the events in balance is Lin Ryder, Stephen's Vietnamese wife. Ultimately, Cal destroys all semblance of balance and Lin is able to reestablish order only through catastrophic violence of her own.

**This will be a show where each of the actors is paired with an actor/interpreter signing for the deaf and co-performing – 10 artists playing 5 roles. Special Note: There are violent, sexual and very disturbing moments in this play – Nobody under 16 admitted without a parent or guardian.

Platinum Travel Club  | Open: 10/04/05 Close: 10/22/05
NPT is pleased to announce the U.S. premiere of Platinum Travel Club by Franca Miraglia, a product of our Women's Work Residency Project. The production opens Tuesday, October 4th and runs through Saturday, October 22, 2005. Performances are Tuesday – Saturday at 8:00pm, with a special performance on Monday, October 17th at 7:00pm.

Platinum Travel Club is an erotic-thriller that explores one woman's road from childhood loss to adult obsession. The abduction of her beautiful teenage sister (Caroline) leaves Sandie to survive a shattered family shrouded in deceit and denial. Despite this tragedy, she doesn't let anything get in the way of building a successful career – neither a neglectful mother nor a dominating father. Switching between past and present, the story unfolds against a backdrop of Sandie's involvement in a business travelers' sex club as she confronts the ghosts from her damaged childhood.

Anne Beaumont directs the production, which features Christiane Amorosia, Andrew Platner, Joan Schumacher, Kevin G.Shinnick, Tony Neil, and Anne Winkles.

Cummins & Scoullar's 'THE LITTLE PRINCE'  | Open: 07/06/05 Close: 07/31/05
This eight person international (and gender-bending) ensemble tells the story of a world-weary and disenchanted Aviator whose plane strands him in the Sahara Desert and a mysterious, regal "little man" who appears and asks him to "Please, sir, draw me a sheep." in the process teaching him the truth about what really matters in life.
The Swan  | Open: 04/06/05 Close: 04/24/05
Fierce in its treatment of love, THE SWAN provides a mysterious gloss on whether or not we descended from the beasts and what we may feel when we find them lurking in our truest selves.

"A bewitching bedtime story for grown-ups...a psycho-sexual cauldron wherein fantasy and deprivation merge and combust. Egloff's language alternates be-tween the unadorned cadences of the workaday world and the lyric fancies of poets, her stage pictures shift from an implacable reality to florid dream states." —NY Newsday.

NOTE: Were we to use a movie rating system we would label this PG-13 as there are both violent and sensual moments and the shooting of a gun onstage.

The Colonel's Holiday  | Open: 02/23/05 Close: 03/13/05
Mr. and Mrs. Butterfly host a traditional Christmas dinner every year for their oddball extended family. What makes this year different? The appearance of her son's ditzy beard, the inviting of a sketchy derelict, and the sudden arrival of a scheming relative who plans to sell the family into the white slave trade...but only after recovering the Holy Grail from underneath their house. Join them all for a family dinner you couldn't forget, even if you tried really hard.
