BEYOND the BLURB
Best of Fringe series
Monday, July 9th
RISE is an original play written by Cal Barnes that will make it’s world premiere at the Hollywood Fringe Festival (an annual celebration of the emerging arts) this June under the direction of Aaron Lyons.
Henry Donner (Brett Colbeth) is a young, popular, Los Angeles based preacher who has it all – a large congregation that adores him, a family that loves him, and a paycheck that would suggest he’s more than good at what he does. While preparing for his next sermon, Henry receives a knock on the door that will change his life forever. Alexandra Riverton (Gowrie Hayden) is a tornado incarnate, bringing with her a secret from their past that has the power to destroy him.
