Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. each day with a 2 p.m. matinee performance November 5. All performances will be held on the Theatre Center Mainstage.

Perfect Pie, written by Judith Thompson, is the story of two women who reunite after 30 years to face long-concealed childhood trauma. Together they unravel the painful memories and find strength in each other. The Toronto Star called the play a "richly rewarding new masterpiece." The production is directed by Texas State Master of Fine Arts student Carly Conklin.
