The company is currently in rehearsal for the U.S. premiere of Owen McCafferty's "Scenes from the Big Picture," which received its world premiere only last year at London's National Theatre.
Set in an imagined area of present-day Belfast, McCafferty's critically-acclaimed play examines the lives of 21 characters over the course of 24 hours as their stories interweave and collide.
Los Angeles Premiere
"The Shape of Things"
By Neil LaBute
Previews: Jan. 18 to 20
Runs: Jan 21 to Feb. 20
Furious Theatre Company kicks off 2005 with the Los Angeles premiere of playwright-director-filmmaker Neil LaBute's "The Shape of Things."
Despite a phenomenally successful production history beginning with its world premiere at London's Almeida Theatre, the subsequent New York transfer and the 2003 film adaptation, "The Shape of Things" has yet to receive a Los Angeles production. Furious Theatre Company is pleased to have been granted the rights to produce the play, which had been specifically restricted in Los Angeles, requiring approval directly from LaBute and his agent.
Set on the campus of a Midwestern college, LaBute's intense, dark comedy is a contemporary story about the nature of art, manipulation and love. Furious Theatre Company's production of the Los Angeles premiere opens at the Pasadena Playhouse Balcony Theatre.
"The God Botherers"
By Richard Bean
Previews: March 22 to 24
Runs: March 25 to April 24
Season 3 continues with the U.S. premiere of Richard Bean's politically incorrect comedy "The God Botherers," which premiered in Nov. 2003 at London's Bush Theatre.
