Years Active 2014-

Austin/Austin (said Austin and Austin) is a duo of friends Ryan Austin and Quinn Buckner with the conscious goal of creating a long term troupe capable of doing regular shows and attending festivals. The duo was conceptualized in early 2014 (earliest email they can find is from 1/16/14) when after many months of throwing around the name "Austin and Austin" they had their first rehearsal and confirmed wanting to start a duo. The name Austin/Austin comes from Quinn Buckner's first name (Austin) and Ryan Austin's last name.


Current Formats

Don't Worry About it

Basic montage with the stipulation that each scene end with the phrase "Don't Worry About It" as organically as possible. Its the goal that the audience (and maybe even players) become so engaged in the scene that they forget the phrase is coming.

Dungeon Masters

Montage set in a fantasy world that gets created at the top of the show with a Mad Libs style narration.

Other Formats

Two Lost Brothers

More grounded narrative in which Ryan and Quinn play two brothers that become lost in a place decided at the top of the show. Potentially a mono-scene depending on if the brothers are forced to split up. To grab the suggestion they inverse the classic "audience yells out something and the troupe picks something they like" standard for Ryan rambling off locations that they haven't been to yet and the audience picking what they like.




Press/Audition Blurbs

  • Who Are We? Long Version

"Austin/Austin is the joining of two friends whose goal is to try everything and become the best they can be while having as much fun as possible. Ryan Austin is the group's debonair lady killer providing grounded scene work and an unstoppable positive energy. Quinn Buckner has been performing since 2009 and brings to the table an eye for support, an abundance of physicality, and a pension for fun. Ryan and Quinn have separately been to festivals from Out of Bounds to Improvaganza in Hawaii and have done numerous mainstages at the Hideout Theatre as well as shows all around Austin. "

  • Who Are We and What Do We Do? Don't Worry About It

"Austin/Austin is the joining of two friends whose goal is to try everything and become the best they can be while having as much fun as possible. They will be rocking a montage called "Don't Worry About It" where each scene is a new world made up on the spot. You never know what adventure is to be had unless you see them for yourself!"
