West Coast Premiere

Written by Gina Gionfriddo
Directed by Darin Anthony

October 25 - November 22, 2008
(Previews October 18 - 24)

The modern quest for fame and fortune gets a Furious spin in Gina Gionfriddo’s award-winning comedy as two young women in Manhattan who want love and happiness (as they define it) set out to find Ed, a serial attacker who’s terrorizing the city. The reward money might make them rich and famous, but can they really find the elusive Ed? No one’s ever seen his face, and everyone on stage is beginning to act eerily “Ed-like.”

Los Angeles Premiere
Written by Anthony Neilson
Directed by Robert Pescovitz

November 29 - December 20, 2008
(Previews November 28)

Be Furious for the holidays with their first ever holiday show. In the Los Angeles premiere of this “adults only” Christmas comedy, Gary discovers a real-life elf during his night shift at the warehouse on Christmas Eve and calls his friend Simon (who is still in the closet and living with his mother) to come over and see what he’s captured. A hooker with a (somewhat) heart of gold named Cherry also shows up expecting to collect the coveted toy of the season which Gary has promised her in exchange for sexual favors. Together, the three try to sort out if the elf is real or not and what exactly is the true meaning of Christmas.

January 24 - February 21, 2009
(Previews January 21-23)

The Los Angeles premiere of the 2006 Harold and Mimi Steinberg/American Theatre Critics Association New Play Award-winner finds Pam and Richard hosting their best friends, Wendy and Tom, for an annual dinner get-together. An animal sacrifice kicks off the evening, followed by a little more sex, violence, deception, wrestling, and dancing than at previous parties. A darkly comic evening where the line between civilized and primal man is blurred, and where not everyone will survive long enough to enjoy the brownies for dessert.

A Co-Production with The Theatre @ Boston Court

July 25 - August 23, 2009
(Previews July 16-24)

A young daughter in serious need of attention. A ravenous creature possibly prowling the upstairs bedrooms. An average Thanksgiving for one privileged family unravels into an exposé of disastrous choices and less-than-altruistic motives. The Pain and the Itch is a scathing comedy about the politics of class and race, a controversial, painfully human examination of denial and its consequences.
