WOOF WOOF to Open 6/8 at Asylum Lab Theatre
Sewer Socialist Productions will present the world premiere of Paul Hoan Zeidler's Woof-Woof, a searing, brutal and redemptive drama about the love of violence and the joy of killing. What would you do if a childhood friend you hadn't seen in 8 years suddenly showed up at your door ... if you knew he'd joined the Army and been sent to Iraq? Starring Jay Seals, Brett Donaldson and Devin Skrade. The Press Opening will be June 8th at 6:00PM at The Asylum Lab Theatre, as part of the Hollywood Fringe 2014. Regular tickets are $10.00.
Woof-Woof is produced by Charles Pacello, directed by the author, Paul Hoan Zeidler, and stars Jay Seals, Brett Donaldson and Devin Skrade.
Jimmy, an Iraq war vet grappling with a traumatic brain injury and PTSD, is discharged from a Warrior Transition Unit at a U.S. Army hospital in Washington, D.C., on a cold winter day. Instead of returning to his family in Philadelphia, he hitchhikes to New York and searches out his childhood friend. Chuck is surprised by his visit--he hasn't seen Jimmy in 8 years--but when he learns it's his first day out of the Army he convinces his roommate Brandon to bring him along on a wild night of clubbing. When a long forgotten, brutally violent incident involving Chuck and Jimmy is revealed, conflicts escalate before the three can get out the door.
Sewer Socialist Productions was founded in the belief that a new play needs to do at least one of the following: Tell a story no one has ever heard. Show the audience a scene they have never experienced. Dramatize characters or relationships they aren't overly familiar with. Or explore conflicts and themes the audience has never or rarely considered. The company casts a wary eye on the conventional and always seeks to find "the new."
Woof-Woof is the fifth production mounted by the Sewer Socialists. Their previous plays include: Time's Scream and Hurry--which had two Los Angeles productions before a successful run at the 2009 New York International Fringe Festival--Acts of Possession (2011 Hollywood Fringe) and Glennie & Maple Break Up (2012 Hollywood Fringe).
WOOF WOOF will have their Press Opening June 8th at 6:00PM and runs through June 28th, with varying performance time Thursday through Sunday, at The Asylum Lab Theatre, located at 1078 Lillian Way, Hollywood, CA 90046. The Official Fringe Festival Opening is June 12th at 10:00PM
