Circle X Theatre Co. to Premiere New Play ICU This September

Circle X Theatre Co. is thrilled to announce the world premiere of a new play, ICU, written by Fielding Edlow and directed by Brian Shnipper.

ICU will preview on Thursday, September 17; Friday, September 18 & Saturday, September 19 at 8pm; Sunday, September, 20 at 7:00pm & Thursday, September 24 at 8pm and will open on Friday, September 25 at 8pm and run through Saturday, October 31 at Atwater Village Theatre, 3269 Casitas Ave. in Los Angeles, 90039.

In this World Premiere play, an obnoxious, caustic, oblivious New York family has to deal with their dying son and a complete stranger who insists on making an "amend." Can they suppress their resentment toward each other -- and toward their son's irascible charge nurse -- long enough to hear a cry for help?
