After a successful six-week run at the Whitefire Theatre, The Quiet Room, or What Happens When a Schizoid Ballerina is Locked in a Room With a Duck will move to the Two Roads Theatre beginning March 26 and continue through April 23.
Written and performed by Pamela Levin, the one-person play explores the inner workings of a manic-depressive. Confined to the four walls of a "quiet room," she amuses herself with imaginary personalities, conversations with God and playful music that sometimes buzzes in her head. These elements are her life line.
The Quiet Room has also been performed by Levin at the Kraine Theatre in New York, the Philadelphia Fringe Festival and the Winnipeg Fringe Festival, where the production made the top ten list out of 100 plays.
Two Roads Theatre is located at 4348 Tujunga Ave. in Studio City. Also playing at Two Roads (on Sundays only) for five weeks only, March 28-April 25, is My Brain Tumor, written and performed by David Nathan Schwartz. The monologue about turning medical tragedy into human triumph is billed as "a mind expanding comedy."
Performances are at 8 PM. March 28 and April 4 are "Pay What You Can" nights; simply bring a canned food donation and pay the kitty voluntarily. For Two Roads information and reservations call (818) 761-0704.
