Now playing: Snake Skin Suit

SNAKESKIN SUIT (hi res).jpg

Deborah Ann Woll (DAREDEVIL, PUNISHER, TRUE BLOOD) stars in SNAKESKIN SUIT, a new play about a date with the devil by J. Holtham (PITCH, CLOAK AND DAGGER). TIM JO (THIS IS US, PITCH), Anniwaa Buachie, Thomas Cunningham and Rachael Hip Flores complete the cast under the direction of Mike Rozycki at The Pico (10508 Pico Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90064), April 28 @ 2 p.m. & April 30 @ 8 p.m..

Lily's new boyfriend is funny, charming, sweet and one hell of a kisser. There's one catch: he's The Devil. Literally. Satan Incarnate. He's retired, left all that demon business behind, is just a nice Guy Standing in front of a nice girl. But still. When you're dating in L.A., is that really a deal breaker? Is eternal damnation too high a price for having love? SNAKESKIN SUIT is a comedy about falling in love, making it work and whether or not the road to hell is paved with good dates.

Tickets are $10 (50% of which will go to benefit The Downtown Women's Center, which supports and empowers women who are or have been homeless). Please join us after the show for a drink (15% off) at The Stalking Horse Brewery and Freehouse.

MEET CUTE

An all female sci-fi rom-com, Meet Cute tells the story of two women who meet in a bar for the first time - or is it the twelfth? The high concept is matched only by the lyrical language.

Written by Christine Boylan (The Punisher, Cloak & Dagger), Meet Cute was directed by Gina Young (Femmes: A Tragedy, SORORITY) and presented on September 24, 25 and 27, 2018. Gina Hiraizumi and Nicole DeSousa lead a cast completed by Victoria Ortiz, Cynthia Hamidi and Lisa Dinkins.

Sources

SOURCES is an intimate negotiation of complex conflicts of interest that begins in the early morning after the 2016 election, when a successful journalist receives a call from a corporate programmer who may or may not have invented an algorithm that can remove anonymity from the internet.

Fresh off his New York Innovative Theater Award for best actor, Ryan McCurdy (Greencard Wedding) made his Los Angeles debut alongside Ellie Pyle, in her play SOURCES, under the direction of Alan Smyth on October 26 and October 28, 2018.

Dark People

Written in the tradition of SLEUTH and DEATHTRAP, the play's very much the thing in this tale of a low-rent movie producer kidnapped by a street gang to pay off a debt. But don't be fooled; things are very much not what they seem in this story of crime and mistaken identity. By the end the lines between victim and victor become decidedly blurred.  

Written by Geoffrey Thorne (LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT, LEVERAGE, BLACK PANTHER’S QUEST), Dark People was presented starring Aldis Hodge (UNDERGROUND, LEVERAGE, STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON). Directed by Bola Ogun (ARE WE GOOD PARENTS?, THE WATER PHOENIX), the cast also included: David Julian Hirsh, Wade Allain-Marcus and Jeffrey Omura.

SUPPER

SUPPER follows four super rich and estranged brothers who are definitely not based on infamous right-wing industrialists the Koch brothers. As they reunite in Japan on the eve of the eldest brother’s wedding, what follows is a savage feast of lies, recriminations, and bitter truths served with a side of jet-black humor. Supper is a brute farce custom built for the age of Trump.

Darrett Sanders, Alex Elliott-Funk , Keiko Elizabeth, Joel Scher and Will McFadden reprised their roles from Theatre of NOTE’s Stage Raw nominated production of Phinneas Kiyomura’s SUPPER in a reading at at The Pico (10508 Pico Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90064), January 15th and 17th at 8pm, under the direction of Alina Phelan.
