Bespoke Plays

Staged Readings in LA & NY

Up Next in LA...

Join us for a staged reading of this new play by Bespoke's master of the brute farce, Phinneas Kiyomura (Supper). Directed by Michael Matthews.

Loosely inspired by a school shooting that shocked the playwright’s high school, THE PARENTS is a four-character drama leavened with cutting comedy that explores the absurdity of America’s violently mad gun culture. By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, this boundary pushing play shatters us and then heals us without giving easy answers. THE PARENTS asks hard questions with humor and pathos. And answers those questions with love. Because that’s what parents do.

Featuring: Kirsten Vangsness (CRIMINAL MINDS; Mess; Cleo, Theo, & Wu); June Carryl (HELSTROM, Y: THE LAST MAN); Feodor Chin (BIG LITTLE LIES, Overwatch, League of Legends); John Colella (SILICON VALLEY); with stage directions by Dana Shaw.

We hope to see you there!

They call him "Graves" and if it's a ghost story you're looking for, he spins a tale so well you won't care whether it's true. He's mentored a lot of Savannah's ghost guides over the years, but his latest collection of stray art students is different: they want to learn magic. Thus far, he's been able to keep them distracted: a bit of Hermeticism here, a little Wicca there, never mind the root working born into these parts. But when a new girl joins the group, her innate gifts threaten to awaken things Graves buried long ago.

We love the push the visual boundaries of what a staged reading can be and this filmed version takes out "you'll forget it's not a production" style to a whole new level!
