The multi award-winning THEATRE TRIBE presents the Los Angeles premiere of the 2004 Kaufman and Hart award-winning play, THE SLEEPER, written by acclaimed playwright Catherine Butterfield ("Grimm") and directed by Ovation Award-winner Stuart Rogers (The Long Christmas Ride Home, Recent Tragic Events). THE SLEEPER opens tonight, May 25 and continues through Saturday, June 30 at Theatre Tribe, 5267 Lankershim Blvd. in North Hollywood.
A suburban "security mom," shell-shocked by the new post 9/11 reality, finds herself irresistibly drawn to her son's tutor, a handsome young man with political leanings far different from her own. Her "awakening" leads to a bizarre series of events that blow the lid off her previously sheltered existence and change the lives of all around her. A dark and slightly zany comedy.
Performances are Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00pm. Ticket prices are $20.00. Tickets are available thru Brown Paper Tickets, online at
