Four local playwrights emerging as powerful voices in Southland theatre, and a quartet of intriguing
and satisfying plays from their imaginations … stories brought to life by actors and directors from across Southern California in collaboration with Chapman University theatre students. Join us in August for this destination new play event.
Full-Length PlaysBender by Erica Bennett (Fullerton) – Aspiring singer/songwriter Ruby gets a golden ticket out of her small Alabama town, but will will the loves of her life and a tragic past hold her back? Directed by Travis Kendrick (Roxy Regional Theatre, Rising Sun Performance Company).
Gray People by Kerry Kazmierowicztrimm (Dana Point) – Trust and loyalties shift as James, Jenny and Adam tensely await a late-night delivery in the woods … unsure what to believe about each other, and increasingly uncertain of their fate. Directed by Tamiko Washington(Chapman University, Actors Circle Ensemble).
Saint or Sinner by Lew Riley (Yorba Linda) – A young investment broker walks into a bar and finds himself in the company of two provocative women … but the night is about to unfold in a whole different way than he anticipates. Directed by Phyllis Gitlin (Orange Coast College, Long Beach Playhouse).
The Rothko by Nicholas Thurkettle (Huntington Beach) – When a museumgoer damages a treasured painting, a debate emerges: how sacrosanct is art, and how should it be enjoyed? Directed by Richard Stein (Laguna Playhouse, Monkey Wrench Collective).
