Hipp Unplugged


Hipp Unplugged: A Staged Reading Series returns virtually for it’s second season this fall. This series aims to bring Gainesville more great theater that is challenging, gives voice to underserved playwrights, and provides our company and artistic community a place to come together and grow.

“The Hipp Unplugged reading series is a chance for the Hippodrome to explore stories we haven’t been able to put on our Mainstage, We can take chances and explore topics that are more challenging.”

Artistic Director, Stephanie Lynge


“We have wanted an artistic project where we can call upon the Gainesville theatrical community to participate as well as give our Company a space to challenge themselves as well as our audiences,” Lynge said. Look forward to plays written by Company members Charlie Mitchell and Candace Clift, some of your favorite actors like Gregg Jones, Matt Lindsay, Malcom Getz, and many more! There will be a talkback after every performance with the director and cast to discuss the works performed.

Join us for Hipp Unplugged as we explore our world and our humanity.

2021 Schedule

The Effect by Lucy Prebble  Hearts racing. Minds reeling. Knees buckling. Connie and Tristan have palpable chemistry—or is it a side effect of a new antidepressant? They are volunteers in a clinical trial, but their sudden and illicit romance forces the supervising doctors to face off over the ethical consequences of their work. THE EFFECT takes on our pill-popping culture with humor and scintillating drama. Streaming via Zoom! Get registered to view this production today!
