subUrbia, Eric Bogosian's high energy, rock-and-roll-driven journey into the suburban existence of contemporary American youth, opens March 9 at the Company of Angels in L.A., directed by Julian Charles. The run is through April 15.Set in the parking lot of a mini-mall convenience store, the play deals with five high school friends as they contemplate their existence and future during a rowdy, not-so-ordinary suburban Friday night. The focal point of the evening is the group's reunion with an old high school chum, Pony, who has become a semi-famous rock star.
Now forty years old, Company of Angels is L.A.'s oldest repertory theatre company. Its specialty is contemporary blue-collar American drama. The theatre is located at 2106 Hyperion Ave. in Silverlake. For tickets and information call (323) 883-1717.
