A sold-out critical hit Off Broadway and a big winner at this year's Hollywood Fringe Festival, the raucous comedy Women cleverly retells the beloved story of Louisa May Alcott's March girls as if it were an episode of Lena Dunham's HBO show Girls, complete with the ready-made hashtag #bethdies. And it isn't much of a stretch to imagine Jo, Amy, Beth and Meg existing in both worlds, especially in this fast-paced and keenly-observed series of sketches. Written by Chiara Atik, the show earned a New York Times critics' pick and scored several awards at the 2014 Hollywood Fringe Fest, including Top of the Fringe and Best Comedy. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
“Forthright and funny, the clever staging avoids reverence while still applying depth to the weighty text, a testament to director Hilario Saavedra’s talent and grace… unique and sparsely beautiful…” —LA Theatre Review
“GO… a provocative performance piece…. Themes of death, infirmity and impotence are common throughout, which Saavedra and his darkly clad actors capture with subtle force.” —LA Weekly
Filament Theatre Company’s critically acclaimed production of T.S. Eliot’s The Waste Land receives the “Resident at the Asylum” award following a successful run in the inaugural Hollywood Fringe Festival. “Resident at the Asylum” awards are presented to the most outstanding productions of the Hollywood Fringe Festival and receive a subsequent extended run as a co-production of Theatre Asylum.
FTC’s performance of The Waste Land is revealed to the audience through the use of found objects, music, and spoken-word–creating a series of inventively hand-lit vignettes performed and engineered by Jason Bonduris, Celeste Den, Tane Kawasaki, Carla Nassy, and director Hilario Saavedra. The ensemble speaks the entire text of T.S. Eliot’s seminal modernist poem, excluding the Latin/Greek prelude, including all the section titles.
