Coughing up blood and passing through frenzies of terror, John Keats dies a death fit for the most romantic of the Romantic era poets. Meanwhile, in the next room, the real drama unfolds as a motley group of characters engages in wandering and witty discussions while politely waiting for the poet to perish. Fascinating conversations about loves lost, deaths attained and the crushing hardship of being human illuminate Rome, a world premiere from Mildred's Umbrella Theater Company. Premiering a collaboration never before seen in Houston, the MUTC has combined a poetic script from John Harvey with live music by Andy McWilliams and video by Stephanie Saint Sanchez in this startling new production. Jennifer Decker directs at Studio 101. Learn More

Kimberly Akimbo was a brilliant piece of work with great direction from Mildred's Umbrella! All the actors were on point and believable. Kim Tobin put on quite a show as Aunt Debra! Carolyn Houston Boone was Fabulous as Kimberly! She showed an innocence and vulnerability, as well as a defiant side of a teenager. Jennifer Decker was on point and believable as a neurotic pregnant Pattie! Ty Doran was spectacular as Jeff. And you can see the pain and addiction in Luke Fedell's eyes. Great job by all cast!

About the Ticket Supplier: Mildred's Umbrella Theater CompanyMildred's Umbrella began in 2001 when local actress Jennifer Decker and poet and playwright John Harvey (Ph.D., University of Houston Creative Writing Dept.) decided to bring together a group of artists and actors to create a collaborative theatrical piece written by John Harvey. The production was a success, earning positive press attention and the attention of many other local artists who wanted to be involved in future productions, and inspired the duo to achieve non-profit status and make plans for another production.
Over the course of several years and under the energetic guidance of artistic director Jennifer Decker, Mildred's Umbrella has expanded to also staging Houston premieres of work from other playwrights and to searching out opportunities for creative collaborations with other local theater groups and artists.
