An Evening Of One Acts: JOAN and WHAT DID THEY SAY

JOAN is an imaginary tale of Joan Crawford's journey through the Bardo and her adjustment to the fact that her soul will move onto the unknown. During this dream state Joan reflects on--her life--her career--her enemies--her loves--those that helped create the film legend she became.

WHAT DID THEY SAY explores gender and sexuality in an unconventional family dramedy, taking place in Los Angeles today. As experienced in today's rough political climate, families don't always share the same values. Family members can be rough among themselves, and where Julian's dad is gay, and his older sister Harper identifies as a dyke, his twin sibling Felicia struggles to understand Julian's gender identity.

Friday & Saturday 8:00PM - Tickets are $20.00

"Only one more weekend to catch these two one-acts! Goreti da Silva was convincing and entertaining as Joan C. and What Did They Say was funny and conversation-provoking."

"A friend took me to see AN EVENING OF ONE ACTS LAST NIGHT and I found both one acts enjoyable. JOAN is well directed with each moment fully realized as Joan Crawford deals with her death and transition. The design team did a great job. The actors found the humor and heart in the piece. WHAT DID THEY SAY? was a very funny and timely piece. At times, moments felt forced and beats were missed here and there, but overall, this piece does deliver on laughs. This was a fun night of theatre."

"Two short plays offer thought-provoking perspectives. The first one-act play, Joan, by Bernadette Armstrong, provides a fascinating portrayal of famed actress Joan Crawford, reflecting back on her life. The second one-act, What Did They Say, by Wendy Winter, is an intimate window into a family trying to grapple with one another's differences. Both plays warmly suggest how to deal with challenging aspects of life."

"It was a great theater experience last week to see Wendy Winter's play, “What Did They Say?” It is the second half of “An Evening of One Acts” in North Hollywood. The characters are contemporary and well written. Truly, a modern American family trying to cope with various sexual identities and labels. There is a good balance between comedy and conflict. A delightfully sarcastic female character named Harper stood out and had the audience laughing over and over. All six actors are perfectly cast, and fun to watch as they maneuver through a Mother's Day family get-together that spins out of control. I don't want to give away any spoilers, but the ending made me chuckle on my way out of the theater and shed a whole new light on the story. This show is a must see."

"WHAT DID THEY SAY is the second of two one-act plays - it was FANTASTIC! Funny, interesting, intriguing, complex, contemporary, and completely captivating from the first line! The play is written well, the actors are perfectly cast, the direction is spot on, and the set design is great! A perfectly wrapped one-act play - that could easily become a full production!"
