Austin Playhouse West Campus - 405 West 22nd St

Commissioned by Austin Playhouse, Previews of Departing Attractions is a collection of witty and poignant short plays tied together by loss and humor.


In addition to new works, Bartholomee has revisited past pieces to curate an evening filled with his trademark comedy, wit, and insight. 

“The title of the collection nods at loss and that thread runs through several of the pieces," said Bartholomee. Some of that has been brought out more through rewriting, but it’s not a new element in the work. The last couple of years have definitely put an emphasis on loss, so it was natural to bring those threads out more as we prepared these pieces for a new life. But none of it was added onto the work. For better or worse, I’ve always been in the mindset of saying goodbye.”
