News   PHOTO CALL: Surf Report Premieres in La Jolla
Annie Weisman's new play Surf Report makes its world premiere at the San Diego-area La Jolla Playhouse. Lisa Peterson directs the work, which follows a troubled Southern California family.

Surf Report is billed as a "comic drama that centers on Judith, who spends her days serving as assistant and caretaker for her demanding venture capitalist boss in a coastal southern California town. Her husband Hal spends his nights trying not to pick a fight with her, and her daughter Bethany, a struggling artist in New York, spends every waking moment trying to stay as far away from home as possible. But when Bethany returns to California for a family emergency, the shadows of the past and the specter of an uncertain future threaten the very core of this turbulent threesome. This funny and poignant play examines the sacrifices we make — or avoid — for our families." The cast features Matthew Arkin, Gregory Harrison, Linda Gehringer, Liv Rooth and Zoë Chao.

Here's a first look at the show, scheduled to run through July 11:
