An African-American attorney with a successful career discovers she has an Iraqi half-sister she never knew about in award-winning playwright Wendy Graf's latest work. This hard-hitting drama about family conflict and clashing cultures stars L.A Weekly and NAACP Award-winner Diarra Kilpatrick as up-and-coming corporate attorney Julie Dolan, whose carefully constructed life begins to crumble when she meets her half-sister Neyla. Neyla, a violinist, has fled Iraq to audition for Julliard, but Julie suspects there is more to her story. Graf's fresh spin on racial relations gives each of its characters their own voice and point of view as they navigate in a world that has become interconnected and multicultural on every level.

wow! this is the best performance i've ever attended through goldstar events, and that says a lot as i am an avid theater attender and on average attend a theatrical performance 1x or 2x a week. i sat on the front row and i was literally inches away from the performers. i bawled like a baby towards the end during several of their emotional scenes. i'm impressed with everything.. from the props, to the writing, to the props, the performers... i cannot be possibly be more pleased.
<p>Lost and Found explores the pain, humor and pathos that people experience when they try to break through each other’s defenses and connect truthfully with one another.</p>
<p>John Flynn returns to the theatre after moving into television for the past decade and is proud to make Lost and Found his comeback production.
“I was looking for the right play to bring me back to theatre, and was fortunate to contact John Pollono and read his play. I think he’s an undiscovered treasure. So few people are writing plays now and very few indeed write with the heart and the assurance John has. This is a play about longing, about not having what you need. What all the characters are looking for is not just love, but unconditional love, a parent’s love or the love of your life. John’s play illuminates this shadow world of grown ups. This conflict, ‘give to get,’ afflicts us all.”-John Flynn, director
Director Flynn received his Master’s in Theatre from Illinois State University, a BFA from Stephen’s College and attended The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. When he moved to Los Angeles, John took over and ran an equity waiver theatre, The Theatre Exchange, which became a very successful theatre in the seventies and eighties. He directed award winning productions of The Time of Your Life and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead there and produced a number of other award winners. Flynn has produced seventeen TV movies and was nominated for the Emmy for Scott Turow’s Burden of Proof. For the last six years Flynn has produced and directed Lifetime’s Strong Medicine which won almost every public service award offered. “Rape Kit”, an episode John directed, won The Gracie Award (American Women in Radio and Television’s Annual Award) for outstanding episodic drama of 2002.
The Jabberwocky Theatre Company is a Los Angeles based group of artists whose mission is to create theatre that is emotionally resonating, thought-provoking and inspires creativity in the Los Angeles community. The company, formed in 2003 by a collective of award-winning actors, directors and writers, is dedicated to creating a supportive environment for artists to develop and showcase their craft and create truthful, human stories and characters that resonate after the curtain closes. Their last production, 2005’s Thicker than Water, enjoyed critical acclaim and a sold-out run.</p>
