Hotel Room Trilogy


MONK PARROTS THIRD THURSDAYS presents

TALL LIKE A SNAKE
A reading of a new performance text by Kirk Lynn

As I remember it, after Carrie went missing, I hiked out into the woods to find her.  I found a cabin where she had stayed—where she was believed to have stayed.  I met the park rangers who worked that part of the woods.  I had sex.  I drank a little.  I ate peaches.  I got high.  The whole time I felt like she was watching us.  I thought I could lure her out of the woods, back into my life.

KIRK LYNN (playwright) is a Founder and Co-Producing Artistic Director for Austin-based company Rude Mechs. Lynn has served as playwright on most Rude Mechs performances including: curst & Shrewd: The Taming of the Shrew Unhinged, Requiem for Tesla, and Lipstick Traces: a secret history of the 20th century. His most recent work with the Rudes includes book and lyrics for I’ve Never Been So Happy (music and lyrics by Peter Stopschinski), a Western Operetta about a single mom who ties her only son to the last mountain lion in Texas. Kirk and Peter are hard at work on a new musical set in the
80’s telling the story of an unlikely friendship between disco DJ and a retired Officer of the WACs. When not working with the Rudes Kirk writes novels and serves on the playwriting faculty at the University of Texas. His solo playwriting includes a new script, The Animals, about a couple who attempts to return to nature within the confines of their own home, and How Much is Enough, an interactive performance composed of questions and prayers, created with Melanie Joseph of the Foundry Theatre, opening at St. Ann’s Warehouse, NYC in Oct. 2011. Kirk holds a James A. Michener Fellowship
from the University of Texas, in Playwriting and Fiction.
