Script-to-Stage / "Shards" Now Showing at the Rollins Theatre!

The Austin Film Festival is proud to be a host organization to the play "Shards" - part of the cycle of plays in The Love Sonatas series put on by the HBMG Foundation - the first locally produced series of shows unveiled at the new Long Center for the Performing Arts!

The Love Sonatas is a series of five, full length plays:
FourSquare, Sonata Escondida, Shards, Stroke, and Kuka.
Composed of snapshots of twenty people’s lives, these plays share characters, but more importantly, they share the common struggle of connecting and
answering the question, “What is love?”

AFF was founded with the belief storytelling is the heart of film. We support the art of making a script come alive to the screen, so it was only fitting to partner with an organization which helps playwrights bring their scripts to the stage!

Saturday, May 24, 2PM - Rollins Theatre - More Information
Thursday, May 29, 8PM - Rollins Theatre - More Information
Saturday, May 31, 8PM - Rollins Theatre - More Information
**Mention "AFF" when purchasing a ticket to "Shards" or any other The Love Sonatas play and a portion of the ticket price will be donated back to the Austin Film Festival.

"Shards" Synopsis:
"How you remember things doesn't mean that's how they happened. Nothing is as unpredictable as the past."
Directed by Paula Russell.
This is the story of Morgan who loves Karen who loves David who loves Anna who thinks she still loves Rodolfo. All the rules have been thrown out in this twisted tango, save one. Find true love. But as they cope with the fallout from their mounting betrayals, the truth might not be enough to set these lovers free.

See you there!
