A World Premiere
By MAX LANGERT
Directed by WILL DOUGLAS
SEPT 30th- OCT 15th 2022
WHAT PEOPLE SAID ABOUT THE PACT
“Talented cast”…”sophisticated writing”…”great performances”…”a sweet deal for Austin”
“The Pact is a play about "family, pizza, climate change, dating apps, and fringe religious sects...in that order” and “is a fun launch for Jarrott Productions after a three yer unplanned pandemic hiatus." "(Will) Douglas directs this talented cast with a bent toward the quick pacing…”
–Joanie Lorraine / BroadwayWorld Austin
"This evening of theatre feels like the pilot of a runaway hit television series."
–Brian Paul Scipione / CTX Live Theatre
“(Playwright Max) Langert picks up all the sticks of his plot, and nothing seems gratuitous.” “Natalie Garcia as Nancy locks character tighter than almost any actor I’ve recently watched. As for sheer acting talent, well she’s sick with it.” “(Newcomer Hannah) Schochler…enjoys her ingenue assignment and stands up well against a cast of highly skilled veteran actors.”
–David Glen Robinson / CTX Live Theatre
