The Water Tribe Extended through February 16

Hello Friends,

Just three more performances of The Water Tribe. Get your TIX soon on the night/day of your choice. Friday the 14th and Saturday the 15th @ 8 and Sunday the 16th @ 2. It runs 90 minutes. There's a discount code, so send me a message if you'd like that.

The actors are out-of-control brave and I'm so proud of them, our director, Tricia Small, and the entire creative team.

We are certainly closing this Sunday, so last chance to come down to VS. on Pico. Love to see you there.

Happy Valentine's Day.

Love is all there is ... Yes?

Don

The Water Tribe is one of the strangest plays I've ever seen, a study in insanity, but it'll be a long time before I forget it.
--Willard Manus, TotalTheater


Alexandra Daniels, Jon Joseph Gentry, and Jayne Taini all give striking performances.
--Matthew Robinson, LATheatrebites


You simply can't take your eyes away from its hot mess of a female protagonist or Hannah Prichard's tornado of a lead performance. For those willing to put up with a whole lot of crazy, The Water Tribe makes for one wild ride.
--Steven Stanley, StageSceneLA


Performed with stellar attention by Hannah Prichard and performed by the equally compelling Christopher Reiling...it's a wild ride, and much like a roller coaster, you feel both a mix of relief and nostalgia the moment it's over. I highly recommend this play.
--Matthew Robinson, LATheatrebites


Cummings tills the writer’s soil exposing an unearthed field, the barren aridity of lost souls, and the underbelly of civilization is on full display, which at times makes the audience writhe in their seats.  Sometimes it is hard to watch as this part of humanity collapses into ruin. The original work of art is certainly theatrical and something to ponder long after you leave the theatre. Run! And take someone you think is living on the edge. You'll both be enlightened.
--Joe Straw #9
 

Claudia is young, parentless, minimally employed, and almost without family or friends but she remains upbeat about her future and confident in her quest to form a personal tribe for herself and her boyfriend Johnny. But Johnny has problems of his own. He has launched into adulthood but still struggles to cut the cord from his concerned mother while searching for a connection to his long-absent father. As the few people Claudia has in her life begin to fall away and the problems in her relationship are laid bare, she teeters on the brink of catastrophe in this searing, darkly funny tragicomedy about the critical importance of community, identity, and home.

And sure!, buy all four of the books below.


And now, the word from Dennis Hensley: 







Dennis heads to his friend Don Cummings' place in Hollywood to play You Don't Know My Life! with four up-for-anything authors. Vanessa McGrady's book is called Rock Needs River: A Memoir About a Very Open Adoption. Career coach Barbara Deutsch wrote a book about communication called Open Up for Shut Up: How to Talk Your Way Into or Out of Anything. August McLaughlin's book is called Girl Boner: The Good Girl's Guide to Sexual Empowerment. She also has a podcast of the same name. And finally, our gracious host Don Cummings, who Dennis interviewed earlier this year, wrote the memoir Bent But Not Broken about his odyssey with Peyronie's Disease. The questions they play have to do with everything from breakups to teen idols to good deeds from strangers to riding in an elevator with Rush Limbaugh. There's also a story involving a tarp and a rainstorm that's so romantic it should be turned into a Hallmark movie. www.youdontknowmylife.com
