A small town teacher is barricaded in her house as an angry mob gathers, howling for blood and justice. This haunting psychological thriller will have you pondering what is real and what is delusory up until the very end. Playwright Jeremy Menekseoglu has crafted a tale where the menace is far scarier — and far more profound — than brainless zombies or creeping vampires. . . Prepare yourself for what the Chicago Reader raved was a “devilish torture on the imagination.” West Coast premiere. Starring Rebecca Lincoln. Directed by Amanda Weier.

The Lounge Theatre is located at 6201 Santa Monica Blvd @ El Centro just one block East of Vine. The Lounge is a completely renovated two theatre arts complex. We have one 49 seat space and one 46 seat space. Our space is unique in that we offer a 1/2 kitchen and huge Lounge area where guests of the show can network on our comfortable couches in the Lounge while enjoying beverages before or after the theatre show. Come see what the best on Theatre Row has to offer!

The Hollywood Fringe Festival is an annual, open-access, community-derived event celebrating freedom of expression and collaboration in the performing arts community. Each June during the Hollywood Fringe, the arts infiltrate the Hollywood neighborhood: fully equipped theaters, parks, clubs, churches, restaurants and other unexpected places host hundreds of productions by local, national, and international arts companies and independent performers.

Participation in the Hollywood Fringe is completely open and uncensored. This free-for-all approach underlines the festival’s mission to be a platform for artists without the barrier of a curative body. By opening the gates to anyone with a vision, the festival is able to exhibit the most diverse and cutting-edge points-of-view the world has to offer. Additionally, by creating an environment where artists must self-produce their work, the Fringe motivates its participants to cultivate a spirit of entrepreneurialism in the arts.

Fringe Festivals exist throughout the world as havens for underground and emerging arts scenes. The Fringe concept was incubated in Edinburgh, Scotland. In 1947, eight performance groups appeared uninvited on the “fringes” of the exclusive Edinburgh International Festival. The Edinburgh Festival Fringe has since grown into the largest arts festival in the world with hundreds of artists, thousands of performances, and millions of patrons every summer. It annually grosses over $100 million for the local economy and remains the biggest tourist draw in the UK.

Fringe Festivals have since sprung up in dozens of cities across the world.

Most Fringe Festivals are open and unjuried preferring lotteries, first-come-first-served, and find-your-own-venue systems to a formal selection process. This open means of programming fosters the work of both the well-established and the obscure; everyone has the opportunity to participate. Fringe Festivals nourish young visionaries by providing networking opportunities and production experience. They also provide large economic and cultural boosts for their hosting communities.

The Fringe organization exists as a hub to the various Fringe stakeholders: venues, artists, and audience. It is not a curating body, rather it provides an open environment in which artists stage their projects. It does not recruit or show favoritism between projects registered with the festival. The relationship between the Fringe and other key stakeholders is decentralized – with venues and artists operating independently.
