Baby Key ArtExclusive Los Angeles Engagement
EDWARD ALBEE’S
THE PLAY ABOUT THE BABY
Directed by Andre Barron
September 16 – December 10
At The Road on Magnolia

In this rarely produced dark comedy by one of America’s greatest playwrights, a young couple who are madly in love with each other, have a child — the perfect family — that is, until a mysterious older couple steal the baby. Through a series of mind games and manipulations, they call into question both couples’ sense of reality and fiction, joy and sorrow.

“A frequently funny and ultimately devastating battle of wills… Albee’s play is revealed here to be among his very finest.” – Variety

Los Angeles Premiere
WHITE GUY ON THE BUS
By Bruce Graham
Directed by Stewart J. Zully
January 27 – March 18
At The Road on Magnolia

Ray, a white financial manager from an affluent neighborhood, has a loving wife and liberal family. Shatique is a black nursing student and single mom from the rough side of town. As they ride the same bus to the same gritty prison every week, they seem to be getting to know each other – until Ray reveals his shocking true purpose for taking these weekly rides. As the ties between Ray and Shatique spin into a complex web of moral ambiguity, revenge, and racial biases, they reach a stunning conclusion in this West Coast Premiere of the play the New York Times calls “a frank stare-down at racial perceptions today… an unsettling study in cultural disaffection that is likely to spark discussions afterward.”

Having braved a perilous journey to escape a violent husband and a volatile political climate in her native Haiti, Sula is determined to find a better life in America for her unborn son. She drifts ashore in Miami on an old rubber tire, eleven months pregnant and desperate not to give birth at sea. For a time she finds shelter in a ramshackle apartment building that houses a lively group of refugees, misfits, and people in need. But when Sula’s husband comes hunting her and the baby, Sula realizes she must banish the demons of her past to create a brighter future.

THE LYONS
By Nicky Silver
Directed by Scott Alan Smith
May 12 – July 1
At The Road on Lankershim

In this scathingly funny look at a family in crisis, the Lyons family is falling apart just when they need to pull together. Rita Lyons, in a heroic effort to keep the family united while her husband, Ben, is dying of cancer, has called their grown children together to say good-bye around his hospital bed. In the ensuing maelstrom of kvetching, guilt-giving, and recriminations, they discover that despite being a family, each of them is utterly isolated. Afraid of closeness and afraid of solitude, the Lyons are unexpectedly propelled into foreign territory – human connection.
