Green Light to Present One-Acts by Women in GLO 2014, 11/6-9
After 12 years in New York and Philadelphia, Green Light Productions has relocated to Los Angeles. Green Light is dedicated to producing and developing new plays by women. For Green Light's first west coast production -- GLO (Green Light One-Acts), the company accepted submissions from only Los Angeles-based women playwrights. The response was overwhelming and after a careful selection process, Green Light selected four plays that are not only incredibly well-written but also funny, powerful, sharp and entertaining. Green Light is thrilled to be in Los Angeles, supporting women in theatre and producing high-quality productions for our audience.
GLO 2014 will feature four witty new plays written & directed by Los Angeles women at The Miles Memorial Playhouse- 1130 Lincoln Blvd., Santa Monica, CA 90403 at 7pm on November 6, 7 and 8th and 2pm on November 9th. Tickets: $15 general admission // $10 students and seniors at www.greenlightproductions.org. FREE PARKING! at 808 Wilshire Structure (entrance on Lincoln).
