The Wolves  
Atwater Village Theatre The Wolves
 
From the safety of their suburban stretch circle, a girls' indoor soccer team navigates big questions and wages tiny battles with all the vim and vigor of a pack of adolescent warriors.

Othello  
A Noise Within Othello
 
As part of their 2018-2019 theme "Let Me In," about the deeply human need to be understood for who we are, Pasadena’s A Noise Within theater company presents Othello. Arguably Shakespeare’s most intimate of family tragedies, it’s the tale of the breakdown of a man who has everything — power, position and love — only to find his world decimated through intense mind games with his malicious ensign. Prescient in its searing social commentary of prejudice, betrayal and thwarted ambition, Shakespeare’s thunderous drama examines who we trust and the price we pay when we make the wrong choice.

Too Much Sun  
Odyssey Theatre Ensemble Too Much Sun
 
Bart DeLorenzo directs the acclaimed off-Broadway hit play by Nicky Silver. Celebrated actress Audrey Langham reaches her breaking point while rehearsing Medea in Chicago — walking off the stage, out of the production and into her married daughter’s summer house in Cape Cod, where her unexpected and unwelcome arrival sets off a chain of events alternately hilarious and harrowing. “Critic’s Pick… An unconditional treat… Mr. Silver is a dramatist with an original and thoroughly sustained tragicomic worldview.” — Ben Brantley, The New York Times.
