Mandell Weiss Theatre
By Joe DiPietro
In 1922, famed director William Desmond Taylor is found murdered in his home. The celebrity suspects mount as the headlines explode with lurid reports of love triangles, hush money and deception. Enter Will Hays, Hollywood's newly appointed moral watchdog, determined to silence the scandal and purify this increasingly corrupt city. Based on the true story of Taylor’s unsolved murder, Hollywood is a noir thriller set in the Golden Age of movies by Tony Award winner Joe DiPietro.
Joe DiPietro and Playhouse Artistic Director Christopher Ashley have enjoyed a long history of collaboration on such acclaimed productions as Memphis (La Jolla Playhouse, Broadway, London) and Chasing the Song.
The Last Tiger in Haiti
June 28 – July 24, 2016
Mandell Weiss Forum
By Jeff Augustin
Co-production with Berkeley Repertory Theatre
It’s the final night of Kanaval in Haiti, and a group of abandoned children spend it trading fantastic folktales until the line between reality and fiction blurs. At daybreak, the oldest plans to leave for a new life but discovers the story of his future and past are in the hands of someone else. Set in a world that is utterly real and remarkably imaginative, this unforgettable new play from Jeff Augustin weaves Haitian lore into a contemporary narrative of survival and betrayal.
Jeff Augustin is an award-winning playwright whose work has been produced at the Humana Festival of New American Plays, Berkeley Repertory Theatre and others. A 2015 Princess Grace Award winner, Joshua Kahan Brody is co-founder of the San Diego site-based theater group THE TRIP. Both UC San Diego M.F.A. graduates, the two presented The Last Tiger in Haiti in last year’s DNA New Work Series.
