GALVESTON – A Dickinson man alleges that he sustained
injuries two years ago while watching a play at a local theater.
According to a lawsuit filed Mar. 15 in the Galveston County
405th District Court, a projectile from the stage at Harbour Playhouse in
Dickinson struck Charles Govan during a performance on Oct. 4, 2015.
Govan says that he and his wife were seated in the second
row. The cast of the play set off some type of special effects explosive device
which caused the plaintiff to get hit in the eye.
“The defendant knew this condition caused an unreasonable risk
of harm to persons such as the plaintiff who would be sitting in front of the
stage where the play was being performed,” recent court documents assert.
Govan consequently seeks unspecified monetary damages.
He is represented by attorney Tom Oxford of the law firm
Waldman Smallwood, P.C. in Beaumont.
