Straitjacket: Variations on a Theme of Horror

Presented by The VORTEX at The VORTEX, Austin TX

Sep 02 - 12 2021
Straitjacket: Variations on a Theme of Horror

The VORTEX presents Straitjacket: Variations on a Theme of Horror, a monodrama written, directed, and performed by Charles P. Stites, freely-adapted from the novel The Star-Rover by Jack London.

2 weekends only, September 2nd – 12th, Thursdays through Sundays.

Due to the ongoing Pandemic and Stage 4 restrictions, The VORTEX requires masks for all audience members.

Darrell Standing, prisoner in solitary confinement, spends days at a time bound up in a straitjacket by command of his sadistic warden. In order to escape the hell of his existence, Standing astral projects out of his body to visit his past lives. A story of madness and violence, and the terror of eternity.
