The award-winning SkyPilot Theatre Company will premiere seven original short plays during its inaugural SkyPilot One-Act Festival this November at Oh My Ribs! Entertainment, 6468 Santa Monica Blvd. in Hollywood. The plays (titled Series A and Series B) will be performed over four nights (two nights for each Series) for three weekends. Tickets are $15 per night with the option of a Festival pass to see all works for $20. With so many issues affecting our country these days, SkyPilot was inspired to focus this festival on themes relevant to everyone in one way or another, allowing the expression of different views and opinions through art and creativity. Playwrights were asked to submit works based on either Black Lives Matter, March for Our Lives, or #MeToo with no limits on position – only good stories with a strong voice and something to say. More than 85 submissions came from all over the country and were narrowed down to seven, selected by the company's members collectively. Series A plays Thursday and Friday nights at 8 PM. Series B plays Saturday at 8 PM and Sunday matinee at 2 PM. Series A Featuring Class Reunion, The Smallest Seed and This is Not A Drill. Series B Featuring Existential Magic 8 Ball, Safedate.com, The Assaults, and Christmas Parole.

"Class Reunion blended comedy and pathos with a genuine punch in the gut. Regular readers will probably realize that is compliment coming out of this keyboard."

"Tom Misuraca's CLASS REUNION is a class reunion with a previously unexplored twist. Five friends reminisce about their younger days and current accomplishments when they meet at their class reunion. The drama and dynamics of who they were has not changed since they last saw each other, but for one important detail. Director Margaret Starbuck manages to keep Misuraca's story surprise intact until the powerful reveal. It's a game-changer in the way we think about school shootings and Misuraca hits his theatrical target tacitly but with great potency."
