I thought the story was wonderful. The actors really got the point across. I also thought it was cleaver the way they moved the stage around. You have to be creative in a small theater.

Description

Love is a battlefield … and DITCH is a whimsical new comedy that delights in an irreverent and humorous look at the trials and tribulations of love, and relationships.  Who we love and who we try desperately not to love determines much of where we go in life.  William and Beth are two people who grapple from within for their truest selves, and for the ability to love honestly.

The world premiere of Taylor Coffman’s DITCH is being launched by Mutineer Theatre Company, one of the newest performing arts ventures in Los Angeles.  Mutineer’s inaugural production of Lie With Me opened to rave reviews and several ‘Critic’s Pick’s’ in March 2009. 

Mutineer Theatre Company is comprised of actors, visual artists, composers, writers, dancers, photographers, sculptors, filmmakers, directors, and designers working collaboratively to conceive unique and inspired work.  The company is committed to creating intelligent, challenging, and thought-provoking theatre that observes, explores, and reflects upon the human condition.  It is their goal to establish themselves as a resource for the development of new works.

Playwright Taylor Coffman’s work has been presented at the Kennedy Center Page to Stage Festival.  She was awarded a George Mason University Theatre Scholarship and is an honoree of the department’s award for Outstanding Performance.  Taylor studied playwriting under award winning playwright Heather MacDonald, received a fellowship at the Folger Shakespeare Library in DC, a Virginia Arts Council Award, and represented her college as an Irene Ryan nominee. She currently studies comedy at Upright Citizens Brigade and has been in Los Angeles for three years working solely in theatre, late night television comedy and film.
