The show was quite funny, very odd at times, but really engaging. The actors are very personable and draw you into the experience. There is some cursing and nudity, so be warned if that isn't for you.

While this "play" is certainly not for everyone's taste, I thought it was highly creative, entertaining, instructive and worth the experience. It pushes the edge, yet clearly represents thinking outside the box.

Description

The Method Gun

Written by Kirk Lynn

Directed by Shawn Sides

Created and Performed by Rude Mechs

The Austin, Texas-based collective Rude Mechs takes a wild and inventive look at the cult of acting in The Method Gun_. Presenting themselves as the abandoned disciples of a questionable acting guru, the company attempts to realize their mentor’s vision of a radically reduced production of _A Streetcar Named Desire.

Shifting from the moving, if minimal, Streetcar_ to the methods of a company that is now the sole vessel of an acting technique called “The Approach,” _The Method Gun follows a misfit ensemble as it courageously pursues its craft, touching upon the mechanisms of process and passion, doubt and devotion, in the pursuit of art.
