‘Hypochondria’ explores what it is to exist simultaneously and in equal measures inside your head and as a (mostly) functioning member of society. And that feeling you feel when you notice a strange mole and it’s probably nothing, but maybe it’s something? And the dark rabbit hole that is Web MD. Among other things.

Local playwright Claire Carson makes her professional playwriting debut with this world premiere directed by Jake Nice and starring Holly Settoon,Yusef Brotha Manjani Seevers, Braden Joseph Socia, Abigail Birkett, and Christine Sanders.

The Tribe is a theatre collective serving one artist at a time to cultivate new work in Dallas, providing collective support in individualized ways. The Tribe throws its heart, mind, and labor to one question, "What does this artist need?", and then provides resources and support to fulfill that need. Whether it is an incubation, a workshop, a reading, or a creative brainstorm in a living room, The Tribe exists to provide individualized support one artist at a time. The Tribe’s goal is to support local artists, challenge their doubts, and to help make them more them — because we know their work will enrich the Dallas cultural landscape.
