Lorraine Hansberry’s Les Blancs, directed by Gregg Daniels, will make its Los Angeles Premiere in late May. Hansberry considered this her most important play – This lost masterpiece had a celebrated revival by The National Theatre in 2016. A tale of exploding colonial tensions and lost fathers, Les Blancs reveals the impossible moral choices faced by individuals who must reconcile personal happiness with idealism. What happens when what we want and what we think is right is not what must be done?
Daytona by Oliver Cotton, directed by Elina DeSantos, opens late September r, an American Premiere. Witty and alternately haunting, Daytona is a love story about three people who find themselves in crisis when the long-buried past returns to disturb the fragile lives they have constructed to survive. How do we forgive ourselves, and others, while living with what we have done?
I’m Gonna Pray for You So Hard by Halley Feiffer, opens in late spring. This West Coast Premiere is a dark, exhilaratingly toxic and very funny, new play. It pulls the audience into the middle of a deeply complicated relationship and sheds a disturbing new light on the eternal struggles of parents and children to find common ground in a world where success and greed are the cultures touch points. Is it a winner-take-all world?
Bled for the Household Truth by Ruth Fowler, directed by Cameron Watson, will open in the Fall. A World Premiere, Fowler is a radical writer who first came to media attention after writing several articles for The Village Voice as “Mimi.” She chronicled her life as a stripper in Manhattan while attempting to obtain a work visa. Bled is a study of modern alienation, about how difficult it has become for young Americans to trust in a broken cynical world that both forces and promotes “Me first.” Will compassion no longer redeem us?
