Ashes, Ashes, an award-winning dystopian-themed play for young people, opened last weekend at Austin Scottish Rite Theater. Geared toward children age 6 and up, Ashes, Ashes will run at the downtown theater on weekends, through May 23, 2015.
In the play, Nini lives in a steampunk world without sun, blue sky, trees or grass. All that was vibrant has been exploited and destroyed, leaving behind a blanket of ashes and darkness. In her quest to save the world, Nini journeys into a mysterious underworld of coal mining shafts and caverns where living walls may hold the secret to life. On her adventure, she must summon all of her courage to meet the challenges that lie in front of her, to defeat the darkness and bring light and love back to the world above.
Ashes, Ashes is showing at Austin Scottish Rite Theater on Saturdays at 11 a.m., through May 23, and Sundays at 2 p.m., through May 17, 2015. Tickets are $12 for adults, $8 for children 12 and younger, and can be purchased at Brown Paper Tickets. For more information, visit the Austin Scottish Rite Theater website. You can also read Austin American-Statesman’s Nicole Villalpando’s review of the play.
