David Grae's romantic comedy Moose Mating will have its West Coast premiere May 5 at the Century City Playhouse, directed by the author. The play won plaudits in New York and at theatres around the country.
Working from the perception that the dating rituals of humans have much in common with those of moose, Grae has put together a light-hearted look at the way people search, meet, date, mate and remain together or not. His main characters are played by Ellen Idelson and Jerry Levine, supported by Aisha Tyler, Rafer Weigel and Kevin Crowley. Grae directs his own work.
The playwright received a Master's Degree from Boston University's Creative Writing Program in Playwriting and Fiction Writing. Moose Mating has been published by Dramatists Play Service.
Century City Playhouse is located at 10508 W. Pico Blvd. For tickets and information call (310) 289-2999.
