HOUSTON PRESS NOMINATES GEORGE KNAPP!
Congratulations to George Knapp, nominated for a 2019 Houston Theatre Award by Houston Press for his “MIND-BLOWINGLY DEFINITIVE PERFORMANCE” of Kent.
“Knapp finesses the play with a slacker’s nonchalance and giddy instability.”
“You will be offended, and you will be entertained.”

It's a kaleidoscope of defeated people, vignettes of the damned and the depressed.
The language is raw, the characters are abrasive, but that’s the point of the play. You will be offended, and you will be entertained.
The audience rides the emotional roller coaster of the broadcast through the chilling world created for them in Barry’s studio...
PODCAST: A Different Kind of Talk Show: Talk Radio at the MATCH
The cast of Talk Radio discusses how a play inspired by the media landscape of the 1980s still resonates today.
MEET THE CAST
I said earlier this year that with the production of The Exonerated, Dirt Dogs Theatre Co. pushed its way into the top tier of Houston performing arts groups. Talk Radio confirms that.
Fabulous show... don't miss it!!!!!!
I was spellbound throughout the entire show by the amazing characterizations by the entire cast.
Kevin Daugherty was excellent as protagonist talk radio host Barry Champlain. I liked the set design and the concept of having the radio callers visible in the peripheral rooms.
You guys ROCKED IT!!!
