This was a very good production. The characters grabbed me from the beginning and held me until long after the play was finished. It was quite intriguing.

Quotes & Highlights

Critic’s Pick! A “darkishly delicious slice of life.” —Backstage West
“…there is more to this play than playwright Steven Fechter’s crackling dialogue. In a series of brilliantly executed flashbacks, director Joey Tuccio allows a glimpse of the humanity that Angela masks with her impenetrable poise. A darkness lurks beneath the shiny surface of this charming flirtation, a darkness that subtly and accurately reveals the potency of human desire.”_ —LA Weekly, Pick of the Week _


In the last smoking bar in Santa Monica a beautiful woman in a green evening dress sits alone, smoking and drinking martinis. She has a past, a secret and no future. Watching her from the bar while he drinks doubles is a man with little to lose who will stop at nothing to win her. Drinks are downed, stories are told, strangers dance and kiss. As they are leaving together, she reveals her secret. This funny, heartbreaking tale is told in the evocative language of film noir.
