Buy Tickets Now!

In 1933, an expedition set out for the Indian Ocean, in hopes of creating the greatest film ever made. Instead, they brought back a giant captive gorilla. This was a terrible idea. KONG: A Goddamn Thirty-Foot Gorilla offers a retelling and deconstruction of the classic King Kong story, commentary on the 1933 film, audience participation, dinosaur fights, and a very large ape on a very small stage.

KONG is the fifth production of SkyPilot’s 2012 season; its second full season of exclusively producing new plays.

October 20 thru November 25, 2012

War Bride Extended to September 23rd!

With rave reviews and enthusiastic audiences, we are now EXTENDING THE WAR BRIDE RUN TO SEPTEMBER 23rd! Get your tickets here.

Here’s some of what the critics have to say about the show:

“Psychological thrills accompany T.U. Studios’ ‘War Bride’… Bigotry, paranoia and violence lurking beneath the frayed comforts of home and hearth roll out a less than hospitable welcome mat to the reluctant “War Bride” at the center of Samantha Macher’s new psychological drama from SkyPilot Theatre.”

“Macher’s storytelling remains taut and gripping throughout…Director-choreographer Nancy Dobbs Owen furthers the mounting dread with a Butoh-inspired chorus of writhing ghosts depicting Yumi’s inner torment…” – LA TIMES

War Bride

“WAR BRIDE” by Samantha Macher

August 11 – September 16 EXTENDED to September 23rd!
Buy Tickets Now!

It is the fall of 1945. Private Alvin Rhodes is returning home to his mother Catherine in Merced, CA. He has an injury that he doesn’t want to discuss and a new wife, a Japanese nurse named Yumi. Yumi is greeted with suspicion and fear, even outright hatred. The bombs were dropped only two months prior and Japanese Americans are still unjustly interned at Manzinar, not far away. She is shy and withdrawn, but with the help of Catherine’s old friend Richard, a Japanese/English dictionary and 1000 paper cranes, her story is slowly revealed. WAR BRIDE combines sharp, witty dialogue with Japanese Butoh influenced contemporary dance to create a completely new play that will tear at your heart while challenging your ideas of right and wrong.

WAR BRIDE tells a compelling story from the point of view of the women: Catherine, Yumi, the neighborhood girls. Roles for women are far too few in American theater. We have also authentically cast both Japanese and American actors, filling a gap in the Asian acting community. Finally, the lessons of World War Two are relevant in a world where we still lock people up without a trial based upon irrational fears and prejudice.

WAR BRIDE is the fourth production of SkyPilot’s 2012 season; its second full season of exclusively producing new plays.

LIGHTS OFF, EYES CLOSED

“LIGHTS OFF, EYES CLOSED”
by Liz Shannon Miller

March 24 – April 29
Buy Tickets Now!

Jane never understood her mother, or the best-selling romance novels she wrote. But after her mother’s sudden death, Jane finds herself in charge of finishing her mom’s last book. With a little help from the novel’s overly-passionate characters, and her mother’s inescapable ghost, Jane must find a way to honor her mother’s dying wish to bring romance into her life.

Lights Off Eyes Closed

LIGHTS OFF, EYES CLOSED was written by SkyPilot resident playwright Liz Shannon Miller, who currently works as a writer on G4′s ATTACK OF THE SHOW. She has a BFA in screenwriting from USC, and since graduating has written dialogue for the U.S. Army, covered the online video world for the tech site GigaOM, and been published by the New York Times, Variety, Nerve and Thought Catalog. Produced theater works include SOMETHING BIBLICAL (Sight Unseen Theatre), IDEATION (3 of a Kind Theatre), NEGOTIATIONS (Black Box Theatre), JUDGEMENT and SAVE A HORSE (SkyPilot Theatre). Based in Los Angeles and a STAR TREK fan since birth, Liz found inspiration for LIGHTS OFF in her own mother’s career as a romance novelist.

Directed by Meredith Berg, who earned her BFA at NYU Tisch in acting and directing. While in NYC, she directed several productions, including “Caesar” Off-Broadway, an update of the Shakespearean play for the York Shakespeare Company. She currently works in Los Angeles as a writer, director and comic-book editor. Her award-winning short film “Void” will soon be available on DVD from Amazon and iTunes.

Starring Mary Burkin, Samatha Carro, JR Esposito, Chera Holland, Joanna Kalafatis, and Jason Kobielus

LIGHTS OFF, EYES CLOSED is the second production in SkyPilot’s 2012 season, our second full year of exclusively producing world premiere plays. Last year’s critically acclaimed plays include THE EMANCIPATION OF ALABASTER MCGILL by Jeff Goode, the sold-out TO THE NEW GIRL by Samantha Macher, and 4 MURDERS by Brett Neveu. All three plays received rave reviews from the Los Angeles press.
