Rising Phoenix Repertory and Weathervane Productions have commissioned new plays from three female playwrights, which will each be produced over the next two seasons. Rising Phoenix Repertory's artistic director, Daniel Talbott, will direct all three plays. The first of the commissions onstage is Thieves by Charlotte Miller, making its world premiere at the Monroe Forum Theatre in North Hollywood, California, March 18, 2015 through April 4, 2015, co-produced by Rising Phoenix Repertory, Weathervane Productions and Rattlestick Playwrights Theater. Scroll down for photos from the show's pre-premiere celebration!

In Thieves, a dysfunctional family gathers at the decaying East Texas estate of its matriarch to celebrate the wedding of her daughter and soon-to-be wife. Other family arrives trailing their own varied disarray, and the estranged father circles the proceedings, looking for a way in or a clean escape. Along with a hired hand, they each try to piece together the event itself, as well as some semblance of family, from their tattered emotional history.

The cast of Thieves includes MacLeod Andrews, Chris Bellant, Addie Johnson, Sarah Shaefer, Samantha Soule, andWendy vanden Heuvel.

Charlotte Miller is a Brooklyn-based playwright and performer. Her plays include Barn (Rising Phoenix Rep), Worst Year Ever (NY Fringe Festival), Joan's Boutique (The Spectrum), Favorites (Rising Phoenix Rep), Rocks (Tank Theater), and Raising Jo (PLAYPENN 2010) among others. Her plays have been read/workshopped with Rattlestick, Labyrinth, the Flea, PLAYPENN, and the Peoples Light Theater. She is a proud member of Rising Phoenix Rep and the Actors Studio Playwrights/Directors Unit.
