Three acting troupes rehearse the same classical passion play at three key moments in history in Passion Play, a clever and highly original comedy-drama from Tony Award-winner and Pulitzer Prize-nominee Sarah Ruhl (In the Next Room, or the vibrator play). Ruhl has been hailed as "one of the brightest new talents to emerge in the theater" by The New York Times, and in Passion Play she weaves a funny and lusty tale of community spirit, individual morality and global politics set in three vastly different historical periods: Queen Elizabeth's England, Hitler's Germany and Reagan's America.

Reviews & Ratings
The “dream team” of Los Angeles Theatre has tapped a young local playwright, Matthew Leavitt, for their next project. Multi-award winners Del Shores, Linda Toliver, Gary Guidinger, and Dámaso Rodriguez are proud to announce the upcoming staging of The Boomerang Effect, a world premiere production.
Del Shores, the Southern-loved writer/director/producer, shares how “it's exciting to find a new, young voice in theatre. Matthew Leavitt's new play is that!”
Five bedrooms. Five couples. One chain of well-intentioned disasters in this new comedy that peeks under the covers.
“The Boomerang Effect is essentially a fancy academic term for describing cause-and-effect, but what particularly fascinated me about the principle was how various fields of study and professions adopt it in very different ways. The concept of one single principle being utilized so differently by so many different fields made me think about the play’s five couples, and the universal complications in their sexual relationships despite the differences in scenario and detail. But really…it’s a comedy about sex.”
