The bathroom is located Nextdoor to the theater up a lot for stairs. So if that's difficult for you, go beforehand! Also, you need to ask for the key from the box office. Then use s key on the outside door and another key on the one stall bathroom door. It was fine for me but I did have to wait a long time for a turn

If you're taking the NoHo bound subway to see the show please give yourself an extra 20. The theater is on Lankershim but below the Vineland intersection.

These skits will run you through a range of emotions and really give you something to think about. I laughed quite a bit and almost cried a few times. The acting was good and eventhough the set was simple it very well served it's purpose.

Quotes & Highlights

“The artistic collaboration magically brings about work that is original and inspired.” – _Tolucan Times _


Where better to reconcile a marriage, consult your dead husband’s gay lover or tell your best friend good-bye, than a park bench?

The Actor’s Workout Studio’s Writer’s Workshop’s newest collection of short plays examines the many facets and paths life takes witnessed by a simple unassuming park bench. Secrets, precious moments in life are often experienced behind closed doors but have you ever wondered what the couple in the park are discussing in hushed tones? 

The show was written and developed by the “Writer’s Workshop” at the Actor’s Workout Studio, a unique writing group that unites both Actor and Writer in a community experience. This collection of 10 short plays by Johnny Cho, Julian Coryell, Sunta Izzicupo, Aaron Gibson, Mick Montgomery and Eric Seppella, highlight this collaborative environment showcasing the marvels of a community working together.
