Tryouts Takes a Closer Look at Prep School Girls and the Mothers Who Love Them

Take a second look at the modern state of womenkind when you witness the world premiere of Tryouts by Adara Meyers, a Boston-based experimental playwright, at Salvage Vanguard Theater. The play wraps this Saturday, October 27th. Don’t miss the final showing of this thought-provoking production!

Directed by co-Artistic Director Diana Lynn Small, Tryouts casts a satirical gaze on women, femininity, and motherhood, inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci’s “The Virgin and Child with St. Anne,” and Freud’s debunked essay on the painting.

Two mothers and three teenage girls maneuver the confines of a prestigious high school when in a tragic (yet comic) turn of events, the mothers throw themselves into the work of forming a pseudo-religious order focused on topiary and the girls confront head-on the primly grim version of adulthood they’ve been taught all too well.

Tickets to witness Tryouts are $10 online. The arts center honors a pay-what-you-wish system every night at the door.

At Parmer Place Apartments in Austin, Texas, we pride ourselves on informing our residents about all the upcoming events our beautiful community has to offer. Don’t hesitate to join this event on Saturday!
