From October 15th through November 7th, Dorian Harewood and Alison Arngrim will star in Flirting with Morty, a play by Paula Mitchell-Manning, at the Acme Comedy Theater in Los Angeles.

"KIN Dance Company, Post Meridian Productions and Joyland Productions present Dorian Harewood ("ROOTS: The Next Generations" and "7th Heaven") and Alison Arngrim ("Little House on the Prairie") and introducing Sean McNabb (of the band Quiet Riot).  Flirting With Morty is a trek through Baby Hunter's past adventures and current torment.  The play leads audiences through an emotional journey they will never forget. Through the use of original R&B music, dance, voodoo and humor when you least expect it -- the issues of incest and the cycle of sexual abuse are explored. Flirting With Morty is a thought-provoking theatrical experience that leaves its audiences entertained, uplifted and informed," according to press materials.  Phil Ramuno will direct.
