Speaking in Tongues  
The Matrix Speaking in Tongues
Two married couples engage in one-night stands. A lover returns from the past and a husband doesn't answer the phone. A woman disappears and a neighbor is the prime suspect. Contracts are broken between intimate partners and powerful bonds are formed between strangers. In the psychological Thriller Speaking in Tongues, wizard-like playwright Andrew Bovell masterfully plots a mystery that unravels while telling a devastating tale of disconnection between individuals, partners and communities. Praised by the UK's Financial Times as "a play of shimmering, iridescent beauty, revealing the marvelous in the everyday," Speaking in Tongues is onstage at the Matrix Theatre in Los Angeles.

Stella's Last J Date, courtesy of Los Angeles' Whitefire Theatre, takes a common scenario we've all experienced and turns it into one of funniest and most honest plays around. Stella is an affable, endearing dog trainer who's no stranger to the world of online dating. She's hoping to end all that while on a promising date with the jazz-loving high school teacher Isaac. Throwing a wrench in things is Don, an imaginary third-wheel and outright bully born from Stella's own anxieties who's out to ruin her chances at finding love. Hidden secrets and skeletons buried deep within the closet threaten to reveal themselves as Isaac and Stella both lay it all on the line with the hope of finally falling in love.
