GLO (Green Light One-acts)
5 new one-act plays written and directed by women
November 5th-15th (Wed.-Sat. at 8pm and Sun. at 2pm)
At The Miles Memorial Playhouse in Santa Monica
Tickets $15-20 at www.greenlightproductions.org
GLO (Green Light One-Acts) was created by Green Light Productions to showcase the best short plays written by women. Submissions for this year’s GLO were open to only Los Angeles-area women because of our commitment to local artists. Out of over a hundred submissions, these five plays represent some of the most talented writers in our area who are creating dynamic characters, fresh relationships and engaging stories. Powerfully funny and intensely moving, the 2015 GLO plays are an incredible look at love, loss and surviving them both.
Announcing the GLO Plays:
“All About Harold” by Diane Grant
Directed by Laura Steinroeder
Featuring: Varda Appleton, Michelle Simek and Amy Stoch
No one knows where Harold is or why he’s left each of the women who love him without a trace. All About Harold is about how we connect and sustain each other in surprising ways and sometimes find friendships that last a lifetime.
“Fiddlin’ on the Mountaintop” by Robin Byrd
Directed by Julianne Homokay
Featuring Shanel N. Moore
Lulla Bell Jury lost her momma; all she has left is the fiddle her mother gave her and the beauty and pain of life in the Appalachian Mountains. A tale of music, loss, family, and land.
“Gentleman’s Pact” by Karen Howes
Directed by Michelle Joyner
Featuring: Joni Allen, Dan Riordan and Eric Toms
This play takes a witty Albee-esque look at the power plays in a friendship and marriage when one man asks another for permission to marry his wife.
“The Plan” by Katherine James
Directed by Branda Lock
Featuring: Zoe Lillian and Kyra Morling
Two young girls mend broken promises and plan future dreams while waiting for the morning bus to school.
“Vital Records” by Alex Dilks Pandola
Directed by Miranda Stewart
Featuring: Gayla Johnson and Kate Torri
Trapped in the never-ending hell that is the Department of Vital Records, Patricia encounters a trio of government employees who guide her along a path of self-discovery.
