lyrics by Anne Washburn
directed by Jaime Robledo (Watson, Stoneface, Astro Boy & the God of Comics)

Previews: Fri-Sat, Oct. 6-7 & Thurs, Oct. 12 @ 8pm

LOS ANGELES PREMIERE! After the collapse of civilization, a group of survivors keep the spark of human spirit alive by telling stories around a campfire. As the years wear on, these stories expand into the realm of myth. At turns sidesplitting and bone-chilling, Mr. Burns also features an unusual approach for the Fools: each act will be staged in a different theater space in the Fools complex, transporting the audience as we search for the light.



We the People

created & curated by Kimberly Atkinson & Amir Levi

Bi-Monthly Mondays @ 8pm
Next: Monday, September 11

This bi-monthly theatre action is a curated staged reading series of new works theatrically exploring, sometimes loudly, sometimes quietly, and everything in between, the social and political concerns facing our country today. We The People: Where artists and audiences come together to Resist, Persist, and Express It. To find hope, unity, and to take action. Every other month, artists will receive a prompt and a deadline. The 3-5 minute pieces will then be curated into a night of theatre. As part of the performance series, all proceeds will go to a related non-profit.

Serial Killers

Saturdays @ 11pm
Returning Fall 2017

Five shows enter... three shows leave.

ENTERING ITS THIRTEENTH SEASON!  Each week, three continuing stories face off against two new tales. At the end of the show, you vote for the three stories that you would like to see continue on to next Saturday night, where their subsequent episodes will then be pitted against two completely new storylines. Each week's serials could live on for weeks... or be quietly smothered in their sleep Ė itís up to you. But whichever pieces you vote for, one thing is for certain - by the end of the evening, you will be a Serial killer.
