All Saints Theatre Ministry, in partnership with local theaters, strengthens the bonds in our community, educates in different genres of theatre and provides thought provoking discussions with cast and directors through the offering of night out events throughout the year.
The Golden Dragon
Friday, May 27, 8:00 p.m. at Theatre @ Boston Court
Written by Roland Schimmelpfenni
Directed by Michael Michetti
We will have a Post-show discussion with complimentary beverages & cheese
What starts out as a simple toothache evolves into a dizzying chain of events as a group of disparate people, played by a cast of five who assume many roles indiscriminate of age, gender, and race, struggle to make connections in an increasingly isolated world. At the center of the story is a Thai/Chinese/Vietnamese restaurant, The Golden Dragon, where a young Chinese man suffering from an oversensitive incisor sparks a whacked and weird series of interconnected stories. A delicious mixture of epic theatre, bizarre comedy, poetry, and fable combine to create this fabulous pho. Tickets are $25, and available at http://qrs.ly/tb55bwx.
The Madwoman in the Volvo
Friday, June 10, 8:00 p.m. at Pasadena Playhouse
Written by and starring Sandra Tsing Loh
Directed by Lisa Peterson
We will have a pre-show reception with complimentary beverages & cheese
In the throes of her own mid-life change, Loh wrote an essay for the Atlantic Monthly, which later became the basis for her memoir, The Madwoman in the Volvo: My Year of Raging Hormones. She identified herself as someone who is from the Triple M Generation—menopausal, middle-aged and a mother. The memoir’s three-character stage adaptation is a bumper-car ride through mid-life madness, all sparked by an unlikely trip to Burning Man. Tickets are $45, and available at http://qrs.ly/8h55h7f.
