World Premiere

 

“Maybe marriage was a better idea when life expectancy was lower.” – Jack from Big Sky

 

Five-star amenities and family fallout are on the itinerary as Jack races to land a life-changing deal during an Aspen getaway. But wide open spaces offer no place to hide as Jack’s family fails to keep the truth and elements at bay. Pulitzer Prize finalist playwright Alexandra Gersten-Vassilaros and Tony Award winning director John Rando offer a funny and poignant cautionary tale about the perils of pretense and fragility of family.

 

Major support for this world premiere production provided by the Edgerton Foundation New Play Production Fund

Written by Sarah Ruhl

Directed by Bart DeLorenzo

 

Critic’s Pick! “Suffused with warmth and humor. Ruhl frothily whips together a romantic comedy and backstage farce.” – The New York Times

 

When long-lost loves are cast as long-lost lovers, two squabbling actors are slow to learn their lines but quick to ignite an old flame. MacArthur “Genius” Sarah Ruhl leads us on-stage, back-stage and out the stage door as reality collides with fiction in this raucous and revealing play within a play.

“A compelling, comic drama. An incisive look at the double edged quest for artistic validation in the digital era.” – Newsweek

 

When frustrated novelist Olivia meets fast-talking blogger Ethan – known more for his sexual prowess than his prose – she worries she will become just another chapter in his little black book. Their funny and flirty union blurs the lines between rewrites, romance and royalties – proving you can’t judge a book by its author.

West Coast Premiere

 

“It has been a long time since a new work has challenged the very core of existence.”

- The Philadelphia Inquirer

“How do we distinguish between ‘difference’ and ‘danger?’”

- Playwright Bess Wohl

 

When a young American tourist has a wild night out with an elegant Spaniard, what begins as a drunken fling becomes a searing and seductive look at two lost souls seeking solace in each other. Bess Wohl’s biting humor uncovers the individual tragedies and triumphs that build us up as well as tear us down.

Website | Email | (310) 208-5454

Written by John Patrick Shanley

Directed by Randall  Arney

Pulitzer Prize, Tony and Academy Award Winning Playwright

“Shanley’s finest work since Doubt.” – The New York Times

“A tender paean to rural life, to the Irish spirit and to the enduring belief that love will find a way.” – The Hollywood Reporter

 

Family farms, feuds and fences have separated neighbors Rosemary and Anthony since childhood. But as the heather blooms in the Irish countryside, unexpected charms are unearthed. Pulitzer, Tony and Academy Award winning playwright John Patrick Shanley’s wry, romantic comedy reminds us that love, early or late, always arrives on time.

As members of an estranged family from a small town in Idaho gather to bury the family patriarch, Mom delivers a surprising twist.

The traditionally joyous and colorful holidays are approaching, and siblings Bo and Ally are stunned to see how their childhood home has been “decorated” for the occasion. We soon see a method behind this madness as A Permanent Image paints a stunning picture of the interrelations in this broken family.
