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

Chapter 10 Productions presents The Hollywood Handshake, directed by Rick Edelstein at The Elephant Asylum Theatre.
Cast: Clem Jeffreys, Bryan Cuprill & Jessica Meyerson
Can success and morality co-exist in Hollywood? Over the course of just two days, a producer, his superior and a temp all press the flesh - in more ways than one - to achieve their dreams. But in Hollywood, everyone crosses their fingers. A serio-comedic look at the real drama the film industry produces.
Rick Edelstein has worked in Hollywood for more than 50 years, most notably as a director and/or writer for Sanford and Son, Starsky and Hutch, Maude, The Bob Newhart Show, and Marcus Welby, M.D..
