On the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George’s dalliance with a young ingénue, they receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom: Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee, and if he likes what he sees, he might cast them in his movie remake of The Scarlet Pimpernel.

Twist, Pull, Smoke - Run, MotherF--er Run!

Twist, Pull, Smoke, Run Motherf****r, Run! is the story of a combat veteran who evades his concerned girlfriend’s questions about his tour in Afghanistan, and instead argues with his relentless and ever present PTSD. This recent addition to the Theater of War genre is based on the conversations that co-writer Matthew Domenico had with two Marines from his former unit. He spoke with them not only about their common memories of Afghanistan, but about their experience acclimating back into civilian life. These two Marines and these conversations inspired this play, co-written with Catherine Connor Duff. From veteran to civilian alike, this project is driven by a cast that has all been touched personally by the military community. This piece demonstrates the difficulty of living with Post Traumatic Disorder and, simply and brilliantly, exposes a veteran’s innermost thoughts. See it at the Maverick Theater in Fullerton.

It influences every song on the album. We’re not afraid of this any more. We’ve come a long way.

Family Matters

2 One Acts by David Macaray

Megan the Merciless
The year is 1982. The occasion is a family reunion of sorts. Megan, a brilliant but abrasive college professor, author, and social critic returns home after three years to visit her two sisters. Their father is in India seeking “spiritual renewal”, and their mom is serving a prison term for vehicular manslaughter. Not only does the reunion not go as hoped, but the old adage, “time heals all wounds” is rendered meaningless.

The Affair
Michael and Veronica have been involved in a torrid three-month affair. While it hasn’t been “earth-shaking” it has, up to this point, been adequate. She is married to a successful physician. He is unmarried, employed as a gardener at the country club where they met. She is bored, cynical and mature. He is childish and suffers from a profound inferiority complex. It’s a comedy.

Betta Daze - Senior Moments 2

Michelle, a technologically challenged senior, is forced to live with Betta, an anthropomorphic computer assistant (Think Siri or Alexa, but on steroids). As Betta gets constant program upgrades to enhance her functionality and make her more human, she becomes paranoid and schizophrenic, and things spiral out of control. What is love? What is family? Does technology serve us, or do we serve technology? Do you have to be a human to be human?

Pennywise - The Cave in Big Bear

If you think you know Pennywise, think again. Though the band has made a name for themselves over the past 26 years as a politically minded, melodic hardcore act who have sold millions of albums. They have become one of the most successful independent acts of all time, however they weren't always this way. In fact the group got their start playing backyard parties in their hometown of Hermosa Beach, California, without having any aspirations other than playing as many songs as they could before the police showed up.
