LOS ANGELES -- The local premiere of Mark Medoff's new play about the battle between two scientists over the fate of a gorilla being used in AIDS research will take place Sept. 12 at the Odysssey Theatre. Despite the subject matter, Gila is "by no means an AIDS play," said a company spokesperson. "It is a play about people locked in a struggle for what they believe is right -- and for what they hold most dear."

Tony Award-winning Phyllis Frelich (Medoff's Children of a Lesser God)) and Emmy Award-winning Heather Tom (TV's "The Young and the Restless") play the lead roles.

Performances are Wed.- Sat. 8 PM; Sun. 7 PM. The Odyssey is at 2055 S. Sepulveda Blvd. Tix are $18.50-$22.50. Call (310) 477-2055.
