While writers are preparing for Oral Fixation’s next discussion topic, “Ducks in a Row,” Oral Fixation is doing just that: getting its ducks in a row.

Oral Fixation has grown too big for its britches. As in, it’s bursting at the seams in the Hamon Hall at Winspear Opera House, says founder and Lakewood neighbor Nicole Stewart.

“Dallas is showing us it’s hungry for more true life tales,” she says.

So before the next reading in April, the AT&T Performing Arts Center, which governs both the Winspear and the Wyly Theatre, will allow Fixation to move next door to the larger Studio Theatre on Level 6 of the Wyly Theatre, located just across the street from Hamon Hall. With the new venue, the show can hold an additional 90 seats, bumping the capacity up to 314.

Oral Fixation, which we wrote about in 2012, is an organization built on an “obsession with true life tales.”

The next show will be held April 14 at 8 p.m. and will feature the stories of people who suffer from the constant urge to try to control their surroundings, or the pressing need to motivate themselves to get their act together.
