Set during the time that Lee Harvey Oswald was held in the custody of the Dallas police, this new play takes a sideways look at a major turning point in American history. Christian Levatino's docudrama takes place in an office within police headquarters where homicide Captain William J. Fritz is given the task of interrogating Oswald. With the nation waiting for answers, the two discuss Van Heflin, Russia, Coca-Cola, Jim Brown, the AFL, backyard photographs and that Friday afternoon in Dealy Plaza. The play won Best of Fringe Extensions at the 2013 Hollywood Fringe Festival, as well as receiving a nomination for the Playwriting O Face Award. Learn More

February 14 at 11pm: Special Late Night gender-switch show!
Impro Theatre and C.A.F.E arts present a one-time only Jane Austen UnScripted gender switch late-night performance on Valentines Day. This is the same critically acclaimed improvised Jane Austen, but with a twist: the gentlemen will play the ladies and ladies will portray the gentlemen. Price include a glass of complimentary champagne and cookies. The essence of Austen’s brilliant and timeless romantic comedies and social satires is brought faithfully to life by this expert team of funny and gifted actors, whose recent explorations of great literary figures include Shakespeare, Dickens, Sondheim, and Tennessee Williams. Impro Theatre is an unscripted repertory theatre company. Since 1988 Impro Theatre (formerly LA Theatresports) has brought innovative unscripted theatre to Los Angeles and the world. The company has performed at festivals from Amsterdam to New Zealand receiving standing ovations, critical praise and first place awards. The company's goal is to take the core narrative and style elements of great playwrights and writers and create a new play using nothing but the essence of the author's work and an audience suggestion.
