In My Own Words imageIN MY OWN X-RATED WORDS by Frederica Duke

11/6 to 12/18
Performances are THURSDAYS only at 8 pm.

Lounge Theatre 2
6201 Santa Monica Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90038

Think Sarah Silverman mixed with Chelsea Handler and a splash of Andrew Dice Clay. Fredde Duke shares 24 outrageous, irreverent and laugh-out-loud stories that propel the audience back in time to the sexual revolution. From her public lawn schtup, to being totally desensitized by the overuse of her Hitachi vibrator. This one-woman show recalls an era when anything and everything was possible, “Because it was the 70’s and damn it, I was going to live those years out like the world was going to blow up if I didn’t partake”.–Fredrica Duke

Starring Pam Levin.

1/11 at 2:00 and 8:00 pm

The Colony Theatre
555 N 3rd St
Burbank, CA 91502

Winner of two Ovation Awards for Best Playwriting for an Original Play and Best Direction of a Play. The Ovation-award winning writer/director team of Meghan Brown and Amanda McRaven returns to the stage with a limited engagement of their hit play The Pliant Girls. Fifty blood-stained brides seek refuge after murdering their husbands on their wedding night, but no one’s eager to take them in. As Kay, Leta, Arianna, Courtney, and Philomena beg for their lives, their stories form a complex tapestry of contemporary sisterhood . . . and provide insight into the deaths of the men who stood in their way. Loosely based on The Suppliants by Aeschylus, The Pliant Girls is an unforgettable and haunting exploration of love, sexual politics, and the power of redemption.

TICKETS & INFO: (818) 588-3836
Tickets $45 each; $40 tickets for groups of 8 or more; $10 discount for students, veterans and seniors

Skylight Theatre Company
1816 1/2 Los Feliz Blvd.

A Play Reading, inspired by the events in Ferguson

Athalia Johnson is a 20-something black woman whose college education hasn’t bought her much in the way of gainful employment. Unsure of her own path, she finds herself drifting into an affair with a married white cop. When an unarmed teenager is shot in the neighborhood, and her brother Jonah disappears with his friends, Athalia struggles to save him from ruining his life. Racing against the clock, she has to make some difficult decisions about her own choices, and find the quality of mercy within.

In Association with Skylight Theatre Company — Written by Alyson Mead — Directed by Malcolm Barrett — With Amari Cheatom, April Grace Cameron Meyer, Karla Mosley, Joseph Russo, and Graham Sibley
