Top Girls  
Antaeus Theater Top Girls
 
Antaeus. L.A.’s classical theater ensemble, kicks off its 2014 season with a fully partner-cast production of the Obie Award-winning comedy by Caryl Churchill. Politics get personal in the go-getting 1980s of Margaret Thatcher's England when Marlene, who has just been made managing director of the Top Girls Employment Agency, discovers that life above the glass ceiling is not all it's cracked up to be. An insightful commentary on bourgeois feminism, this bold and ingenious work offers one of theater's most honest portraits of what it means to be a woman in the modern world. Shoulder-pads may no longer be in fashion, but Churchill’s masterpiece continues to resonate.

Recall  
The Lex Theatre Recall
 
Desperate to protect her daughter -- and to keep her from being "recalled" by the government in order to be cured of her psychopathic impulses -- single mom Justine is on the run with teenage Lucy. Seeking safety in this dystopian near future is no easy task, so Justine and Lucy consider themselves lucky to wind up at a safe house run by a mysterious man named David. But it isn't long before hidden agendas and rising interests hurl these characters towards some decidedly dark and drastic consequences. Hailed during its off-Broadway run as "twisty and tense" by The New York Times, and "entertaining and unsettling" by New York Magazine, Recall now makes its West Coast premiere at the Lex Theatre.

A Song At Twilight  
Pasadena Playhouse A Song At Twilight
 
In A Song at Twilight, celebrated author Hugo Latymer has reached the autumn of his days with everything a man could wish for: wealth, success, fantastic friends, and a life filled with laughter, luxury and travel. A profound fear of intimacy and public scandal, however, kept him from embracing the one true love in his life, and now he wonders if he would trade the success for a chance to do it all again.
