Show Info

Studio C Artists is proud to present the next in their one act “room” series… IN THE BASEMENT. This collection of brand new short plays is a collaboration of 3 producers, 5 directors, 8 writers, and 20 actors and is comprised of 8 plays that all take place in a basement setting. The shows cover a wide variety of topics including romance, deception, lying, hostage taking, captivity, families, and one very odd sense of interior decorating! There is a nice mix of comedy & drama IN THE BASEMENT – “Wait ’til you see what’s down there!”

Studio C Artists will showcase 4 of the plays on one night (“Dank”) and the other 4 plays on the next night (“Musty”).  Both shows will alternate between Fridays and Saturdays. Please check schedule for details.

This series is also being entered as a participant in the Hollywood Fringe Festival.  The festival runs from June 11-28, 2015, along Theatre Row in Hollywood, CA.  Awards are given out to shows in various categories.  PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL TICKETS FOR THE FRINGE PERFORMANCES (ALL JUNE SHOWINGS) ARE ALSO AVAILABLE THROUGH THE HOLLYWOOD FRINGE FESTIVAL BOX OFFICE.
