LOS ANGELES -- Pieces, a romantic comedy by first-time playwright Tim Stanford, will have its world premiere at the Complex in Hollywood Jan. 8, directed by Gina Garrison.
The play is about "the difference between feeling emotions and taking responsibility for one's emotions and how that difference affects a relationship," said Stanford in a statement. "The play combines many traditional elements of storytelling with a nonlinear narrative. The scenes, like a puzzle in a box, are jumbled pieces of the final picture. It's about trying to piece together a coherent personality from the jumbled mass of memory and experiences contained within the mind."
Stanford majored in creative writing at UC-Santa Cruz, CA. He is the writer and narrator of the animated film "Penguin Soup" due for release in early 1999.
The cast features Alexandra Hoover, Curtis Brooks, Tajl Coleman, Daniel McCoy, Annie Morse, Matthew Fern, Stephanie Quay, Greg Jackson and Matt Sturiale.
Through Feb 13, 1999 at the Complex, 6476 Santa Monica Blvd. Call (310) 990-0024 for information. -- By Willard Manus
