Carthay Films presents the Los Angeles premiere of The Protagonist, a new comic play by Tim Livingston, beginning July 24 at the Lillian Theatre.



Directed by Jeremy Guskin, the production will officially open July 25 at 8 PM and continue through Aug. 9.

The cast features Libe Barer, Keenan Jolliff, Joey Livingston and Christian Roberts.

The Protagonist, press notes state, is a "comedy that audaciously attempts to inspire its audience. It wants to make people laugh, make people think, and balance profundity with levity in a unique poetic style. The story focuses on two brothers living their own version of the American dream — one with a lucrative job in finance, the other striving to be creative, both unable to understand the rationale of the other. As they trek along their disparate paths, they realize how far they’ve drifted apart, how much they’ve changed, and finally, how much they need each other."

The design team includes Grant Gorrell (set and lighting), Alyson Wheeler (costumes) and Jaymes Wheeler (sound).

Tickets are $19 and may be purchased online at www.theprotagonist.ticketleap.com, or via phone at (323) 571-2288. For more information, go to www.theprotagonistplay.com.

The Lillian Theatre at the Elephant Stages is located at 1076 Lillian Way.
