In 1955, in the redwood country north of San Francisco, a multiracial girl grows up in a predominantly white town whose residents pepper their speech with the historical dialect of Boontling. Found floating in a basket on the river as an infant, Bulrusher is an orphan with a gift for clairvoyance that makes her feel like a stranger even amongst the strange: the taciturn schoolteacher who adopted her, the madam who runs her brothel with a fierce discipline, the logger with a zest for horses and women, and the guitar-slinging boy who is after Bulrusher’s heart. Just when she thought her world might close in on her, she discovers an entirely new sense of self when a black girl from Alabama comes to town. Passionate, lyrical, and chock full of down-home humor, this play is an unforgettable experience by a new, thrilling voice.

PLEASE NOTE: There is NO late seating.

WOMENWOMEN by Chiara Atik

Directed by Stephanie Ward

Preview Performances 8/28, 8/29 and 9/4 at 8pm
Opening 9/5 and Running through 10/25
Performances Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays @ 8:00 pm

THEATRE ASYLUM
6320 Santa Monica Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA. 90038

Combined Artform and Matthew Quinn present the return of WOMEN. After a sold-out run in New York City and the Hollywood Fringe Festival, WOMEN, written by Chiara Atik and directed by Stephanie Ward, is returning to Los Angeles for an extended run at Theater Asylum with a brand new LA-based cast, running August 28th through October 25th. Official opening is Friday September 5, with a reception to follow.

Jo March really thinks she could be the voice of her generation….or at least, a voice, of a generation. This fast paced comedy is a mash-up of Louisa May Alcott’s classic book, Little Women, and HBO’s critically acclaimed TV show “Girls”, delivering a smartly crafted and hilarious 55 minute comedy masterpiece.
WOMEN originated as a full length piece in New York City at the Kraine Theater in January-Feb of 2014 after it garnered attention at #serials, a late night episodic competition at the Flea Theater. It then transferred to The People’s Improv Theater, where it was extended. In June WOMEN came to the Hollywood Fringe Festival and took home Top of the Fringe, Best Comedy, the BLIFF Award (The Bitter Lemons Irreverent Fringe Femmes) and The THIRTY90NE Golden Elephant Awards for Golden Production.

New York Times Critics Pick. New York Magazine’s approval matrix pegged it as “High Brow and Brilliant,” and Gothamist calls it “Hysterical.”

300x200_LHF_AdLOW HANGING FRUIT, by Robin Bradford

September 20th thru October 26th
Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m
and Sundays at 2:00 p.m.

Zephyr On Melrose
Hollywood Area
7456 Melrose Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90046

Directed by Lee Sankowich

In Robin Bradford’s new play, “Low-Hanging Fruit,” four homeless women live on the mean streets of LA’s Skid Row. All are combat veterans of Iraq/Afghanistan, and trust each other because of shared experiences in the military. None of them are equipped to handle what awaits them away from the security of the service and the quasi-security of the private encampment they’ve nicknamed “The Taj Mahal.” When one of the women befriends a young runaway, she breaks the group’s most basic rule: no one allowed in camp but ex-military
