Walk around the corner to Nat's Thai on Vine, just north of Santa Monica, hole-in-the-wall Thai with fantastic food at good prices and in large portions, you won't be disappointed. Service isn't stellar but the place is so small you can wave and catch their eye as needed. The food is worth it.

Quotes & Highlights

This production is The Little Flower of Orange is the play’s West Coast premiere.
Saturday, November 13th and Sunday, November 14th, join the cast, director David Fofi and playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis for a post-performance Talk Back.


When Therese Marie (Melanie Jones) arrives in the emergency room of a small hospital in the Bronx , the nurses and doctors assume she is just another faceless charity case — abandoned, elderly and unable to even tell them her name. But Therese Marie’s dementia is not all that it seems and when her prodigal son, Danny returns to New York, Therese Marie must fight to maintain her dignity as he imposes upon her the ugly secrets of their past. In this inter-generational ghost story, Stephen Adly Guirgis gives us a searing portrait of a mother and son who must face a long family legacy of abuse in order to find the true meaning of grace.

Stephen Adly Guirgis is the author of such plays as _Our Lady of 121st Street, The Last Days of Judas Iscariot, and In Arabia We’d All Be Kings_, which was produced by the Elephant in association with VS. Theatre Company in 2008. That production won four LADCC Awards, two Garland Awards, and received two_ LA Weekly Award nominations. The Little Flower of East Orange_ is directed by David Fofi.
