On an Average Day  
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. The place is piled high with old newspapers, and something is rotting so horribly in the fridge that the simple task of extracting a beer poses a major health risk. 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). Directed by Daniel Travis, Produced by Anne Kathryn Parma and Drew Kenney.

Whether you’re encountering the Nobel Prize winner’s writing for the first time, or building on a body of Beckett knowledge, this dynamic showcase is not to be missed. Center Theatre Group is proud to present On Beckett, a new work by master clown, Tony Award-winning actor, and MacArthur, Guggenheim, and Fulbright Fellow Bill Irwin. Critic’s Pick!
