"When you love someone, you give them the power to destroy you," according to press notes. "Amazing Frogs and Toads is a play about what happens when they use that power. Stuart and Abby, Celia and Danny — they are two couples who are the closest of friends. They know everything about each other ... including things the others don't know. In this dark comedy, support, trust, and intimacy become the instruments of fury, betrayal and loss. A best friend is one careless remark away from being your worst enemy."
Founded by Devon Gummersall and Andrew Carlberg, The Piece Project is a celebrity-based theatre ensemble. Every two-three months, The Piece Project hosts a play reading to benefit a local Los Angeles theater company. All proceeds benefit VS. Theatre Company.
VS. Theatre Company is located at W. 5453 Pico Boulevard, Los Angeles. Admission is $20. For reservations email email@example.com.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
