A Jewish family's tension between identity and spirituality boils over in Robin Russin's comedic drama The Face in the Reeds. When Christina's family gathers for its annual dinner celebrating Passover, it sparks a heated debate that moves between the true meaning of the holiday and starkly existential topics such as the value of life and the shadow of death that symbolically "passes over" their house. The cumulative effect is a poignant, frequently funny rumination on freedom, family, forgiveness, and what we owe to our faith, our past and or tribe in spite of what we actually believe. Learn More
Travis accidentally kills his wife in a tragic accident with a firearm. The authorities are calling it murder, claiming that he had motive and opportunity. Karen was adulterous and pregnant with another man’s baby. Travis’ best friend Brent fingers him as a cold-blooded murderer. The fact that Travis’ dad is a career criminal and a convict doesn’t help things either.
But Travis is innocent of any crime. The State can’t execute him. Can it?
An innocent man’s life hangs in the balance as Society must once again make the choice of pursuing institutionalized killing in the name of justice.
TV and film star Michael DeLuise (“NYPD Blue,” “21 Jump Street,” “Some of My Best Friends”) stars as Travis. The cast also includes David Bosnak, David Beck Brown, Rebecca Crandal, Chuck Crook, Austin Highsmith, Edgar Jauargui, Monia Joblin, Erin Kelly, Michael Laurie, Jake Newton, Val Norton, Michele Perdue, Sharon Repass, Marisa Stevens and Joseph Whipp.
Mikey Myers directs. The managing director of Ruskin Group Theatre Company, he recently directed its long-running hit production of “Picasso At The Lapin Agile” and produced “Loose Ends,” also a long-running hit.
Playwright Markus Flanagan’s previous locally produced works include “Cliches” at the Ruskin Group Theatre, “Fighting Gravity” at the Powerhouse, and “Varying Degrees of Love” at the Court. Also at the Ruskin, he produces and writes for “L.A. Cafe Plays,” in which short plays are transmuted from concept to performance in eleven hours.
