Some plays push you to the edge of seat, but only Fail/Safe will leave you sitting on the brink of eternity. This world premiere from Strawdog Theatre Company takes you back to the Cold War at its absolute iciest. Adapted from Sidney Lumet's 1964 movie starring Henry Fonda, Fail/Safe effectively imagines a nightmare scenario where a systems failure threatens to trigger World War III. As time runs out, the President and his advisers scramble to find a strategy that will save the planet from a nuclear holocaust. Anderson Lawfer directs this new work based on the gripping novel by Professors Eugene Burdick and Harvey Wheeler at the Strawdog Theatre. Learn More

Another very well done performance at Provision Theater . . . certainly no expert on theater productions, but we thoroughly enjoyed this event. It is so refreshing to be a part of something like this . . . entertainment, enjoyment, inclusion . . . the theater is such a great venue . . . makes you feel like you're really a part of the production. There are no bad seats; the free parking is huge in the city; the chance to get tickets thru Goldstar at such a great price. We sat six rows back . . . where else can you do that for half price. The actors were well cast and did a wonderful job . . . the funny scenes were funny . . . the angry scenes were angry. The sets were simple, but very effective . . . enjoyed the use of AV to help set the scene. And having a play with a quality message is so rare today that it stands out as a light in the darkness. Go see for yourselves. . . .I think you'll like it, too.

Welcome to Los Angeles, the city of angels, where traffic never stops, people never sleep, and wonders never cease. When a car accident leaves a famous movie star in a coma, nurse Kemp McAvoy devises a plan to make his fortune. Manipulating her medication, he pretends to be an angel, then dictates a “spiritual bestseller” he believes will make them both rich. But while Kemp is implementing his scheme, his girlfriend’s daughter, Leah, claims to actually see the celestial beings. This humorous and powerful production is filled with mystery and manipulation as the characters try to figure out what is delusional and what is undeniable. Join Provision Theater as they present the world premiere theatrical adaptation of award-winning author Tim Downs’ story of unexpected redemption. _
