Description

Written by Gary Lennon

Directed by Jim Fall

Gary Lennon’s other plays include Blackout, Dates and Nuts, and .45, which opened in the winter of 2010 at London’s Hampstead Theater, directed by Wilson Milam. Lennon adapted Blackout into a screenplay called Drunks, and the film (his first feature) starred Faye Dunaway, Diane Wiest, Amanda Plummer and Parker Posey. Lennon has also written and produced extensively for television, including on shows such as Justified, The Unusuals, The Shield and The Black Donnellys.  

Jim Fall is perhaps best known as the director of the feature film Trick, starring Tori Spelling, Christian Campbell and J.P. Pitoc. He also directed The Lizzie McGuire Movie for Walt Disney Pictures, among others. On television, Jim directed several episodes of So NoTORIous for VH1, Grosse Pointe (produced by Darren Star), and the A&E feature Wedding Wars, starring John Stamos and James Brolin. He is currently in development on a feature he has written titled Dorothy on the Rocks, which is based on the novel by Barbara Suter.  

The Bootleg Theater is a 1930s warehouse and a home for Los Angeles artists who work in theater, music, dance and film. Bootleg provides artistic support and production resources to help these artists create original and daring interdisciplinary work. Combining art forms creates work that is surprising, unexpected, exciting, and reflective of life in Los Angeles, a city where the boundaries are elastic, and not bound by tradition. Bootleg offers Los Angeles a celebration of itself.
