Donald is trying to live his life as a gay man in 1980s New York—a struggling actor no less. Of course his parents are in denial about his lifestyle, disapprove of his career choice, and question his flair for decoration. To get his family to stop kvetching, Donald needs a son. With the help of his ballsy best friend Henrietta and rising drag queen Levi, Donald hires the ten-year-old kid from downstairs to play his son. Taken from the website.

Exploring culture’s obsession with true-crime, LaShea Delaney’s Moniece Clark considers what makes
one woman more valuable than another in this weird and funny play that follows Moniece Clark, a woman who has vanished from a California desert town. Her sister, Mimi, must trace her whereabouts with the help of a burnt-out television detective and the online sleuth community that has never given up on Moniece’s case. Moniece Clark brings themes of feminism, race, intersectionality, and media bias to the fore, while examining elements of true crime TV, camming (as in cam girls), Law and Order: SVU, suburban sprawl, and the desert at night. Taken from the press release.

MADE IN AMERICA is an hour-long solo show about a brave first-generation Japanese artist, Teruko’s shocking, raw autobiography. She chooses to immigrate to the States from Japan by her own will for a reason, encounters many odd and dangerous situations, faces obstacles and learns how to survive in America.

This show is about humanity. It describes beautifully about how the humane American system helped her and did everything for her to survive. This show needs to be seen and heard because it does bring awareness of Women, First-Generation Immigrants, Mental Health, Domestic Violence, Child Abuse, Sexual Abuse, Suicide and anyone who suffers and needs help. Taken from the website.

Wow!!! This is why art exists.
This show is amazing! Her ability to tell her story in such a funny yet powerful way is truly a gift. To turn such hard subject matter into a piece of art that touches the human heart in a way that it reveals who she is and touch your our experience is truly an art form. GO SEE IT! best life performance I have seen in years.

GREAT SHOW! LA Theatre Bite Recommended

In the wee hours of the morning, two young, devoted Christian women find their faith in the Lord tested as they attempt to dispose of the evidence of a recent overzealous display of faith by feeding it to pigs housed on a rural farm. Caught in the act, these young women find the evening becomes progressively more complex, morbid and dangerous as they encounter test after test of both super and natural origin. Their attempts to assuage their God, explain away their actions, and save their own lives and souls, turns into a rollicking debate on faith, the afterlife, and the existence of the devil herself. Taken from the website.

A motley crew of actor friends gather at a mountain retreat to bury – errr… plant – one of their own. Randy’s star was rising fast when he was suddenly felled by an undiagnosed heart condition. His surviving partner, Madi, seems curiously at peace with the loss, tossing around quotes from Socrates and Epictetus, to the confoundment of her comrades. Is she in denial or in possession of genuine spiritual enlightenment? Meanwhile, Kevin and Cameron are best friends from a time gone-by who once toyed with the idea of a romantic relationship, but went on to lose touch and partner up with others. Added to the mix are TV stars Collette Stone and Dr. Brad, who may have been involved in a love triangle with the deceased; Jane, a pregnant spouse with deep suspicions of her husband; and a strange and mysterious new philosophy-of-life called “Naoism.”

Where is the in-between? In the wake of the anti-Asian hate crimes across our country, Something In The Air is a play that focuses on the lives of eight very different Asian/Asian-American college students living in America. These eight individuals come from different walks of life and from all over the diaspora, representing the diverse realities of AAPI college students in the country.

A story that combines mystery, conspiracy theories, myths, and generational stories. Taken for the website.
