LOS ANGELES: Theatre West has announced its 2016-17 season, which will include a comedy show, a festival of new work, and two new plays.
The season will open with a one-night-only comedy show from Leslie Caveny, One Woman Gone Wrong (Sept. 10). The show tackles theatremaking and sanity.
In the new year, the theatre will present Darryl Vinyard’s Family Only (Feb. 17-March 26, 2017), about a couple who throw a housewarming party to celebrate their first home, and encounter questions about family and obligation.
Next up will be The Man Who Saved Everything by writer-in-residence Benjamin Scuglia (April 28-June 4, 2017). The play is about a man who refuses to let go of the memories of his deceased parents and his childhood.
In addition to the mainstage presentations, Theatre West will also host Westfest 2016, its annual festival where a new work will be presented every weekend in October 2016.
The theatre will also present its annual fundraising event at the Magic Castle, featuring the institution’s magicians, called Millennium Magic XVII (Nov. 18-20).
Theatre West was founded in 1962 and is the oldest continually running theatre company in Los Angeles.
