A workshop production of Paradise Bar and Grill by Lindsey Ferrentino will be presented on January 21st at 8pm at The Blank Theater in LA, featuring Darren Pettie (Mad Men) and Jedadiah Schultz (created role in The Laramie Project).

Paradise Bar and Grill is a failing bar at The Edge of Seminole Swamp, deep in the Florida everglades. As a hurricane bears down and a sinkhole threatens to engulf the bar, three friends struggle to make it through in a world gone mad.

The play was developed at Atlantic Theater Company (directed by Stephen Brackett starring ZOSIA MAMET and Jason Butler Harner) and opened Rattlestick's Great Play Festival (directed by Jaime Castaneda starring Pablo Schreiber, Erik Jensen, and Ato Esendoah). ZOSIA MAMET and Pablo Schreiber are attached to the play.
