The Sparrow is the story of a young woman's return to the small town where she grew up, 10 years after the tragedy that originally sent her away. Can she help the town - and herself - move past their collective trauma, or are they doomed to be forever tied to that tragic event? It's a surprisingly funny and touching show. I keep describing it like the weird lovechild of Carrie and Donnie Darko, set in a graphic novel.
Coeurage is LA's only Pay What You WANT theatre company. That's pretty amazing. Apparently, someone once paid them with a fig, which is somehow so damn poetic... and also crazy. You can read about it, and the company, here.
I cannot say enough good things about my cast, our stage manager, the creative team in general, or, and most especially, our director Joseph Calarco. It's not very often you get to glow about theatre in LA...so I'm gonna keep glowing until I can't.

Come for the dodgeball. Stay for the dead pigs...or whatever you're into these days.
