The West Coast Premiere of Brett Neveu’s dark dramedy 4 MURDERS offers an examination of urban isolation and the convenient yet tragic cure for such loneliness. It is a surreal discussion of images, impressions and ideas that poke through the clutter of the day-to-day. The normalcy of eating dinner, drinking tea, waiting for a bus or falling to sleep is interrupted by thoughts of mortality, as a serial killer meets and murders four characters seemingly at random. If the darkness itself were physically able to converse, those conversations would be much like what is heard in 4 MURDERS; for once we begin to speak to the darkness, our biggest fear is that the darkness may just speak back.

Written by SkyPilot resident playwright Brett Neveu, known for such critically acclaimed productions like RED BUD at the RoyalCourtTheatre, London, England, GAS FOR LESS at The Goodman Theatre, Chicago, IL, OLD GLORY at the Victory Theatre, Burbank, CA and AMERICAN DEAD at the Rogue Machine Theatre Company, Los Angeles, CA.  “4 MURDERS was written as an exploration of modern urban fear and what horrors lay in the shadows of our darkened city streets.” says Brett.

Directed by James Sharpe, who directed SkyPilot’s critically acclaimed productions of SEXUAL PERVERSITY IN CHICAGO by David Mamet, and THE END OF CIVILIZATION by George F. Walker.

Starring Eric Curtis Johnson, Heather Roop, Germaine De Leon, Morgan Lariah and Guy Mack.

4 MURDERS is the fourth production in SkyPilot’s first season of exclusively producing premiere plays, including the critically acclaimed YES SVETLANA, THERE IS A GRANDFATHER FROST and THE EMANCIPATION OF ALABASTER MCGILL, both by Jeff Goode, and just recently, the sold-out TO THE NEW GIRL by Samantha Macher.

SkyPilot Theatre Company is a non-profit organization dedicated to fostering new relationships with provocative playwrights to develop the most compelling, challenging and humorous new plays for the Los Angeles theatre going audience.

Germaine was born in San Francisco, CA and has been a SkyPilot Theatre member since November 2010.

This quickly lead to a string of art house films such as “Hunting of Man”, “The Aura”, and “Marriage of Charlie Johnson.” At the same time, Germaine worked as a print model for clothing companies such as “WESC” and “Hot Topic” to give him the time and financial stability to do the art house films he loved for little to no money. He eventually won an acting award at the Method Fest Film Festival in Burbank, CA which lead to his signing with a manager and agent. De Leon made his first professional acting debut doing a national Honda commercial with Micheal Andretti. Immediately, De Leon began working regularly as a guest star on the major television shows “CSI:Miami”, “CSI:NY”, “The Closer” and many more. In 2006 De Leon had his first film break through with a lead role in 2006′s “Walkout” for HBO and then another lead role in the popular Dimension horror film “Buried Alive” in 2007. Currently Germaine has completed half of season 6 of Showtime’s Emmy Award winning series “Dexter” coming out Fall 2011 and had a supporting role in the comedy “Here Comes the Boom” for Sony Pictures which comes out in theaters the summer of 2012.
