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?



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.

Alexandra Daniels, Jon Joseph Gentry, and Jayne Taini all give striking performances.

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.

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.

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.
