Two women reunite on the eve of an art opening: a famous painter and an unwanted guest. Are they old friends or just survivors of an unspeakable loss? Is Los Angeles the city of second chances or just a barren landscape of faded friendships divided by time and place? Meet Marsha and Sue two Los Angeles transplants in their forties, their thirties, and their twenties as they try to piece together loss, longing, love and running away.

Before texting, facebooking, and tweeting became the preferred mode of communication for young people, there was writing notes. Remember passing them in high school? Remember how it felt to get caught? OMG! Meet Miss Edwards, a high school English teacher on the last day of a long teaching career. And meet Joe Marks, a basketball star whose college scholarship is suddenly in jeopardy when his attempt to pass his girlfriend a profanity-laced, sexually charged note, dripping with hormones and misplaced modifiers, is intercepted by Miss Edwards during a final exam. With nothing to lose as she bids farewell to her teaching career, Miss Edwards puts an unorthodox approach to the test, using the note to teach him a lesson in English composition, and to see if she can light an intellectual flame under one last underachiever.
“A delightfully warped homage to educators everywhere, filled with the mixed joys and sorrows of passing the mantle of knowledge to a generation that thinks Madonna was a contemporary of Mark Twain and school is a waste of time.” – Backstage
“Hilarious… Levin has obviously diagrammed a sentence or two in her time, and her shots at declining standards of literacy are spot-on.” – LA Times

In Allison Volk’s absurdist romp, 1950s housewife Helena discovers that her husband, Seymour, is no longer the eloquent poet she married. Specifically, he has devolved into a chattering monkey, which could pose a problem at the elegant dinner party Helena is throwing for the publisher interested in Seymour’s work. Meatloaf, banana cream pies and mayhem ensue as Helena struggles to solve the mystery of her husband’s condition, all the while playing the perfect hostess.
Volk is an actress, award-winning filmmaker, and co-founder of The City Shakespeare Company.

The Hebrew Hillbilly, written and performed by singer songwriter Shelley Fisher, is a musical one woman show which chronicles Ms Fisher’s Hollywood odyssey that begins in the heart of the Mississippi Delta in her hometown of Memphis, Tennessee, birthplace of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Blues and Bar-b-cue. Growing up Jewish in the deep South with a flamboyant mother who frowned on her dating the local redneck boys, the Hebrew Hillbilly begins singing as a little girl and never stops. From her early years as a blonde bombshell, through her current incarnation as The Memphis Belle of L.A., Ms Fisher has been on a show business rollercoaster that slows down just long enough for her audience to climb on board this deeply personal, yet universally appealing and hilarious ride. The production is directed by Chris DeCarlo and produced by Debra Ehrhardt, with 14 original songs written by Shelley Fisher, Kenneth Hirsch, and Harold Payne.

One-woman solo show as part of the 21st annual L.A. Women’s Theatre Festival. This show is both laugh out loud funny and sweetly poignant in the re-enactment of family events. It recalls the women’s bread making tradition at family reunions; as well as the adventures of one of the women in the family who somehow missed all the family lessons of making the bread. This story is told through the daughter’s eyes.
