Above the Fold: In a follow-up to last year’s sold-out production of Moment in the Sun from Inkwell Productions, veteran sportswriters Lefty and Manny have their friendship tested when their papers merge and they’re forced to compete for the one remaining job

_ Red Flags_: With the Olympics having focused our attention on China, and our presidential election fast approaching, this dark comedy looks at America’s trade imbalance and the government’s self-proclaimed “flexibility” in dealing with our civil liberties.

By Elliot Shoenman (Home Improvement, The Cosby Show)

Directed by Mark L. Taylor (Sunset Park, Architect of Destiny)

About the Ticket Supplier: Inkwell Theater

The Inkwell theater company is dedicated to producing new works that value the writer; a company where young artists and veterans alike can work in an environment of experimentation, support, and collaboration.

In the spring 2004, the company presented __Only the Dead Know Burbank__ by Peter Lefcourt, followed by __The Architect of Destiny__ by 25-year old Michael Gianakos; and __Tango 'Til They're Sore,__ written and directed by 25-year-old Matthew Hancock. The company's fourth play, __Sunset Park,__ by Marley Sims and Elliot Shoenman, ran for fourteen weeks and was published by Samuel French. Then came Michael Halperin's __All Steps Necessary,__ which was based on a meeting called by Hermann Goering three days after the Kristallnacht pogrom. In 2007, Inkwell produced __Moment in the Sun__ and in 2008 __Old Glories.__ 2011 brought the Ovation-nominated production __AfterMath__, starring Annie Potts.
