Although sexually free, the members of the triad adhere to their own fairly rigid ethical code. Who’s moral now? Will the couples and the triad live happily ever after?

This play is suggested for audiences 18 to Adult.

But with Stagg predicting severe storms and Irving P.

The Complex On an Average Day
 
The action is set in the kitchen of a small house in upstate New York, the home of the acutely lonely Robert.

Robert is clearly in desperate trouble. Then his older brother Jack arrives, as neat and controlled as his sibling is wild and unraveled. On an Average Day is a mystery play, a moving psychological drama and a black comedy, a thrill ride full of twists and turns. A West End hit starring Woody Harrelson and Kyle MacLachlan, written by John Kolvenbach. This is the Los Angeles premiere, starring Drew Kenney (Veronica Mars, Adam Ruins Everything, The Ellen Show, The Bachelorette_) and James Liddell (_Killer Kids, Two Ways to Go West, Mountain).

Love In Bloom Oct 5 - Nov 23, 2019  
Santa Monica Playhouse Love In Bloom
 
Santa Monica Playhouse presents its acclaimed musical hit Love In Boom, the “captivating” (stagehappenings.com) garden of a thousand and one theatrical delights returns to celebrate its 10th anniversary to insure that all's well that ends as you like it. Santa Monica Mirror calls Love In Bloom “an upbeat romp.” “Delightful whimsy… a bold ambitious piece of musical theatre” says the L.A. Weekly. Magic and mayhem, fops and fairies, mistaken identity, romance and humor abound in this tongue-firmly-in-cheek evening of theatre. The eight-member cast, in the renowned Actors’ Repertory Theatre commedia-carnival style, creates a host of over thirty characters, bringing to the stage all the stuff that dreams (and musicals) are made on. “As homage to Shakespeare, master of pantomime Marcel Marceau, Commedia dell’arte and conventions of classical theater in general, it soars. And by the time the lights fade to black, you will not be able to fight the feeling that all you need is love.” UCLA Daily Bruin
