The Playwrights Under Progress (PUP) Fest is a showcase of our city’s best young theater talent. High school students submit their original works, and a handful are selected for staged readings at Kitchen Dog Theater.  Out of the more than 200 entries this year, our very own Hillcrest ’09 graduate Andrew Ryan Milke’s play was among the five that made the final cut.

"My play, ‘The Beef House’, is about a guy and his friend running from his hillbilly nephew," he tells me. "The Beef House is a diner in Garland and it serves as a character all on it’s own! I highly recommend coming to see the play or visiting The Beef House." 

You can check out Milke’s work during a free performance at 1 and 4 p.m. this Saturday, June 13, at the Kitchen Dog Theater. If you’re free, come show your support for Preston Hollow’s very own budding Tennessee Williams.
