Yours, Isabel

Actors Co-op Theatre
1760 N. Gower Street Hollywood

Inspired by letters written by Isabel McMeniman to her husband, Nicholas D’Angelo, and set during World War II, YOURS ISABEL is the poignant and moving story of a marriage from the perspective of a man at war on the other side of the world and the headstrong young woman he has left at home. Can their relationship withstand the time, distance and profound changes of a world at war? YOURS, ISABEL received its World Premiere in August of 2011 as an invited work of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in Scotland. The production received five star reviews from Broadway Baby and Edinburgh Guide. In addition to YOURS, ISABEL, playwright Christy Hall collaborated with American Theatre Wing Jonathan Larson Award-winners Jeff Thomson and Jordan Mann on the musical TRAILS, for which she wrote the book. TRAILS received Los Angeles and New York productions, and was awarded the Stage Entertainment USA Development Award. A member of Actors Co-op, Ms. Hall is currently writing the book for HOME, a new musical with music and lyrics by world renowned composer/lyricist Scott Alan. YOURS, ISABEL is performed by Heather Chesley and Rick Marcus. The production is directed by Marianne Savell and produced by David Scales.

"...Playwright Christy Hall reinvents the epistolary play (one based on an exchange of letters) with her zesty, captivating World War II romance Yours, Isabel, now getting its official American Premiere at Hollywood’s Actors Co-op, and an all-around splendid one at that."
