Excellent production. I remember watching this play in its earliest development at Theatre West. It is well cast and quite engaging in this small classy theatre. A very enjoyable experience in an intimate setting. Very funny as well as...continued

Powerful delivery. Greatly selected cast. Funny yet "could even be realistic". Ruskin Group Theatre never disappoints me.

Quotes & Highlights

“…comically rewarding. The members of the Ruskin Group are to be lauded for their efforts.” — Variety
“A gripping script translates beautifully…under the tight direction of Mikey Myers. Veers from drama to comedy… doesn’t flag for a moment…so engrossing and the acting so perfect.”—Curtain Up
“A brilliant psychological comedy/drama//twister…dazzling…engrossing…awesome performers. This one is definitely a MUST SEE!”—_Santa Monica Daily Press _
“A hilarious production…tight, solid direction with an extraordinary cast…scrumptious upscale set home set. Faithful is our CRITIC’S PICK” — _KCLA  _


The suspense of an unabashed assault takes an astonishing turn somewhere between comedy and drama. A rejected wife and a hit man, hired by her husband, expose their quirky bonding on the darker side of love. This strange and spirited, yet oddly familiar, exchange between the characters reveals a compelling tale of attraction, infidelity, betrayal, and deceit that might just have a chance for redemption…during an unexpected stirring of conscience.

Faithful will be directed by Mike Myers, who is also the Ruskin’s managing director. Mike has produced more than 25 projects since 2002. He is a co-creator of the Ruskin’s critically acclaimed LA CAFÉ PLAYS, a monthly offering of one-acts that are done in 10 1/2 hours from conception to staging

John Ruskin (Artistic Director) who’s critically acclaimed staging of Strange Snow last season was extended to accommodate demand from local audiences. John’s years of experience include his studies at the Yale School of Drama, British American Drama Academy in Oxford, England, and the University of Colorado in Boulder. In New York Ruskin joined the acting faculty of the Neighborhood Playhouse at the request of Sanford Meisner (who he apprenticed) before moving to Los Angeles where he founded his own school of acting and a professional theatre company.
