52 PICK UP Comes to the West Coast as Part of the Hollywood Fringe Festival 2014
Acting 4 Camera and Into the Fire Productions are proud to announce that the internationally acclaimed festival hit "52 Pick Up" will be performed in multiple theatres at The Complex (both the Shepard Studio and the Flight Theaters) as part of the Hollywood Fringe Festival 2014. Tickets are $12.00 and can be purchased at:http://hff14.org/1645
Multiple casts perform 15 shows over the 4 week period of the Festival. A pair of actors offers a unique deck of playing cards to the audience to shuffle. But why unique? Each card has a scene title on it, referring to 52 pre-written scenes spelling out a love story from beginning to end. The first card is turned over, and the story begins. But what comes next, no one knows, no one can predict...
With the actors slipping seamlessly into the non-linear narrative of their relationship, it's impossible to know what the next scene will be. Will it begin at the beginning or at the end of their relationship? Will it be followed by their first date or their last argument? With a kiss or a slap?

MORE ABOUT THE SHOW
Performed to sold out houses at festivals around the world, 52 Pick Up (by Rita Bozi & TJ Dawe) never fails to be an audience favorite, and the cast is as surprised as the audience at what may come next.
Add to the unpredictability of scene order, a revolving cast of actors to mix-and-match the central characters, and you have an evening of impossible-to-predict chronology and relationship dynamics. In fact, you could live to be a thousand years old, watching a performance of this play every second of your
lifetime and not make a dent in the number of possible permutations of 52 Pick Up!
Want a hilarious, touching, mind-bending night out? 52 Pick Up is it.
The diverse, international cast performs their roles in different combinations each night. A multinational group of actors with experience that not only spans continents but brings to 52 Pick Up, vast experience in theater, film, TV, improv and serious drama.
52 Pick Up is a memorable and enjoyable night out where audiences want to revisit again and again.
The sum is 52x51x50x49x48...x4x3x2x1 and the answer is roughly:
To put it in perspective, if you were to see 52 Pick Up every second from the Big Bang to today, you would not be 1% of the way through the possible permutations that the story offers. And that's the actual math!
