Bespoke Plays Kicks Off Monthly Reading Series With MEET CUTE
Meet Cute by Christine Boylan (The Punisher, Cloak & Dagger) will receive a public reading directed by Gina Young (Femmes: A Tragedy, SORORITY) on September 24, 25 and 27 at 8 p.m. at The Pico (10508 Pico Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90064). This is the inaugural presentation of Bespoke Plays, a monthly reading series founded by Boylan, co-producer Ellie Pyle, and other local writers. Their mission is to offer play readings customized to the goals of the writer and readiness of the play, for Los Angeles writers with diverse stories and worldviews, while supporting local charities and nonprofits.
An all female sci-fi rom-com, Meet Cute tells the story of two women who meet in a bar for the first time, or is it the twelfth? The high concept is matched only by the lyrical language. Gina Hiraizumi and Nicole DeSousa lead a cast completed by Victoria Ortiz, Cynthia Hamidi and Lisa Dinkins.
Tickets are $10 (50% of which will go to benefit Los Angeles LGBT Center) and can be reserved at: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3615748. Please join us after the show for a drink (15% off) at The Stalking Horse Brewery and Freehouse.
Meet Cute is considered "industry ready" so directors, producers and agents can request industry comps by emailing the address below. (This is at the discretion of the playwright and will not necessarily be the case for future readings as we read work in a variety of stages). Bespoke Plays has an open submission policy for actors and directors. For more information, email BespokePlays@gmail.com.
