Flatironing a corner in historic Houston Heights, Obsidian Art Space was cofounded by Leighza Walker and Tom Stell, whose artistic prowess spurred the Houston Press to herald the theater as 2011’s Best New Arts Venue. The company stays true to its dedication to new work with Motel Tropicana: An Adult Series of Short No-Tells, 10 short, edgy plays written by 10 scribes from around the country, all taking place under the seedy roof of a motel. Tension slowly tightens its vice in Piercing the Skin, and an array of twisted, yet colorful characters fill out the rest of the vignettes, making for stories seedier than a watermelon wearing a trench coat. Steering the dramaturgical decathlon of avant-garde vignettes and intermission pole-vaulting heats are six directors, including Walker, the theater’s managing director.
