Theatre of NOTE presents West Coast Premiere of WELCOME TO THE WHITE ROOM
Theatre of NOTE announces its production of the west coast premiere of WELCOME TO THE WHITE ROOM, written by Trish Harnetiaux and directed by Megan A McGuane. WELCOME TO THE WHITE ROOM will preview Friday and Saturday, August 11 and 12, at 8pm, and will open on Thursday, August 17 at 8pm and run through Saturday, September 16 at Theatre of NOTE, 1517 N Cahuenga Blvd (just north of Sunset) in Hollywood.
In WELCOME TO THE WHITE ROOM, we discover Ms. White, Mr. Paine, and Jennings shortly after they have arrived in a completely white room, following their journey within as they attempt to figure out exactly what they are meant to do. There are the letters that only Ms. White can read. There is the arrival of The Last Deck of Cards in the World. There are The Three Devices. There is the constant advancement of the levels. Somewhere between throwing a party, suppressing sexual tensions, and dancing a violent tango, this senseless world summons its puppeteer. And our three puppets are in for a big surprise.
