LOS ANGELES -- The Attic Theatre, which lost its Hollywood base to high rents and its projected new NoHo home to political intrigue (a local car dealer out-manuevered them on a piece of property), is bouncing back by mounting a bill of one-acts, Two Plays, at The Players Space in North Hollywood. The plays, which took first and second-place prizes during the Attic's 8th Annual Playwriting Contest, will open Oct. 6 for a limited run of only two performances.
The winners are Sailing Home to Tea by Julia C. Edwards, directed by James Carey; and Lillian and Ethel by Doreen Dunn, directed by Eileen Sweeney.
"This is our idea to keep the theatre group viable and active," said Carey, who is the AT's producing artistic director. "By forming a traveling troupe we hope to keep our name and focus out there until we can find the right venue to reopen in. We are not down for the count."
The Players Space is located at 4934 Lankershim Blvd. For tickets and information call (310) 659-3637.
