WET: A DACAmented Journey, is the story of what it means to be an American in every sense of the word except for one: on paper. It chronicles the story of Anner Cividanis' Journey of living his whole life in the United States as an undocumented American. The play captures the desperation that DREAMers feel when considering the very limited options of adjustment of status, by being forced to navigate through a broken U.S. Immigration System. The play examines the mental, emotional, and psychological hardship one man has to endure in order to secure his livelihood in the only home he has known: Los Angeles.
WET: A DACAmented Journey is written and performed by Alex Alpharaoh, directed by Kevin Comartin, and produced by Liz Ross. The play was originally developed as part of the True Story program at Ensemble Studio Theatre/LA.
“Bliss (or Emily Post Is Dead!)” by Jami Brandli is playing through December 2nd at Moving Arts at Atwater Village Theatre
"Funny and powerful in equal measure, “Bliss (or Emily Post Is Dead!)” is a terrific spirit-rouser at a time when women everywhere are calling out bad behavior and demanding equality — and, this week, boosting their numbers in the halls of government. Moving Arts energetically brings Jami Brandli's script to life in a presentation at Atwater Village Theatre.
This is a big year for the North Hollywood-based playwright. Her “Through the Eye of a Needle” was well-received when introduced by the Road Theatre Company in North Hollywood in the spring, and “Bliss” has been rolling out in a three-part world premiere, with stagings in San Diego and Chicago preceding L.A.’s." Daryl H. Miller, LA Times
