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
Quotes & Highlights
- “Shem Bitterman’s Sensitive Skin a creepy-sexy chamber piece about ambition of all sorts in late ‘90s New York, features a bizarre love triangle as sleek and inviting as the New Order dance classic.” --Los Angeles Times
- “Shem Bitterman’s new drama, Sensitive Skin, is a kind of R-rated fable dissecting the psychology of a young woman torn between two men and her camera. Gives a gutsy and unnerving performance that reverberates long after the lights go out.” --L.A. Weekly
- “In Shem Bittermen’s darkly comic meditation on jealousy and deceit, blood is thinner than water and nothing is more porous than the shifting waters of loyalty…in this provocative tale of the used and the users.” --Backstage West

Elephant Stageworks proudly presents the World Premiere of Sensitive Skin by LADCC award winner, Shem Bitterman and directed by David Fofi.
