Home Front

VJ Night, 1945. On a night like this, anything can happen — the world is never going to be the way it was. Austin Highsmith Garces (seen at the Victory in Resolving Hedda and The End of Sex) and C.J. Lindsey (The Men in My Life, True Story on Netflix) star as a white woman and an African-American soldier who fall in love the night World War II ends — a time of euphoria for Americans after years of devastating conflict. But can that sense of good will and new beginnings wipe away the racial mistrust and discrimination in a country still deeply mired in the Jim Crow Era?

Do You Feel Anger?

Circle X Theater Company at Atwater Village Theatre

The #MeToo movement meets cancel culture in Do You Feel Anger?, a truly outrageous comedy that The New York Times calls “ingenious,” “inspired” and “flat-out hilarious.” When Sofia is hired as an empathy coach at a debt collection agency, she finds she has her work cut out for her. These employees can barely identify what an emotion is, much less practice deep, radical compassion for others. As they painstakingly stumble towards enlightenment, someone keeps mugging Eva in the kitchen, and the unspoken dynamics of their seemingly blithe workplace culture become increasingly unsettling.

But when Cady devises a plan to end Regina's reign, she learns the hard way that you can't cross a Queen Bee without getting stung.
