THE CONDUCT OF LIFE Plays Hollywood Fringe, Now thru 6/28

THE CONDUCT OF LIFE traverses the volatile relationships and status woes of Orlando, an ambitious climbing lieutenant commander, his vigorous and trusting wife, Leticia, and their collection of servants, friends and/or prisoners. In this dark, gritty exploration of how people live complicit with an improvident government, we witness five characters use sex, violence, power, class struggle, and their own humanity to feed The Beast.

Director Sabina Ptasznik shares, "The play is about a world in which tenderness and hope are the greatest threats to the status quo. A world very much like our own, where we live in numb acceptance because we've got fancy cars, big houses and pleasant enough dogs. It begs us to wake up and take action."

THE CONDUCT OF LIFE features *Robert Homer Mollohan, Karina Wolfe, Jeremy Mascia, Belinda Gosbee, and *Emily Yetter.

Production staff for THE CONDUCT OF LIFE includes Sabina Ptasznik, director; Nick Santiago, scenic design; Ric Zimmerman, lighting design; Martin Carrillo, sound design; John Houston, costume design; TaShaunna Peterman, stage manager; Daniel Gonzales, assistant stage manager/props; Caitlin Hart, producer.

"It seems impossible not to connect the truthfulness in Fornes' plays, their alertness of depicting, their unfacile compassionateness, with a certain character, a certain virtue."

-Susan Sontag speaking on Maria Irene Fornes

Maria Irene Fornes is a celebrated Cuban-American avant garde playwright and director and was a leading figure of the Off-Off-Broadway movement in the 1960s. Fornes' themes often focus on poverty and feminism, and she has won a total of nine Obie Awards throughout her writing career.
