Six years ago, a 10-year-old boy accidentally shot and killed his little brother. Now, a court-appointed social worker has come for a home visit to determine if the boy should be let off parole early. With One In The Chamber, Ovation Award-nominated playwright (Dysnomia) and HBO Audience Award-winning screenwriter (The Four-Faced Liar) Marja-Lewis Ryan crafts a timely drama about family dysfunction and the effects of gun violence in America. With thematic echoes of Ordinary People and Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf?, One In The Chamber goes right to the heart of a national crisis as seen through its day-to-day impact. Learn More

Well where to start ? The gay Mafia is a smaLL group of actors with lots of energy and good intentions... The experience is like "Ok, Judy we will show everyone and put on our own show !!" The hour long show could use some editing and quicker pacing. The skits ranged from very funny to almost embarassingly unfunny. This is really small theatre and I kept wishing we would get a sense of who the performers were but ,alas the masks were on and solidly opaque.
Quotes & Highlights
“Inspiring.” —Margaret Cho
“Comedy Pick of the Week.” —LA Weekly
An innovative and groundbreaking theater company, The Gay Mafia is the first of its kind in L.A. and has proved provocatively funny for gay and straight alike. The Gay Mafia has had its share of controversy with its take-no-prisoner style comedy, skewering everything from Ted Haggard and Mary Cheney, to the war on terror, lesbian space aliens, and retired gay Navy Seals.
