“The script has the cadence of the verbiage used at the time, which the actors seemed to relish.” —Tolucan Times (highly recommended)


This is the latest original play from Sterritt, who is one of L.A.’s up-and-coming playwrights, a multiple award-winner who has seen great success with original works that run the gamut from hysterically absurdist comedy to intense drama. Caribbean Romance garnered Second Prize in South Coast Repertory’s New Play Competition. Pumpin’ the Chihuahua was awarded a California Arts Council Grant. The Road to Damascus was named as a Finalist in The Eugene O’Neill National Playwrights Conference held annually at Yale. And Freezing Antarctica was a Finalist at the Sundance Institute. Sterritt is also prepping another original, The Wreck of the Spanish Armada while staging The Missile Man of Peenemunde.

For this production, which takes place in Germany, Sterritt wanted to create an authentic atmosphere for the patrons. As such, studio/stage will be transformed into a beer garden with an accompanying Berlin cabaret called Burly Q Moon: Burlesque, Beer and Busted Tears immediately following each performance. A ticket to the show gets a patron a free refreshment and some post-show entertainment.

“I thought if we were going to do a German play during Oktoberfest, no better location than a beer garden,” Sterritt said. “The idea is to offer more than just a show, but an experience, which is what theatre is really all about.”
