The Katselas Theatre Company and Rogue Machine will present an extended run of the current hit, DIRTY FILTHY LOVE STORY (CRITIC’S CHOICE-LA Times). The popular Skylight Theatre is the new venue for the show as Rogue Machine and The Katselas Theatre Company prepare for their 2013 season. Due to overwhelming demand, this production will now have four performances a week, beginning January 18th.
A darker than black comedy about a lonely woman who is forced by her meddlesome neighbor to face her hoarding problem. When she finds unexpected love, deeper issues bubble to the surface and her hoarding mess spreads farther than anyone can handle.
ROB MERSOLA (Playwright) has had several of his plays produced in both New York and Los Angeles and has had pieces performed at the World Famous Aspen Comedy Festival, LA’s Improv Olympic, among many other notable venues. Applause Magazine has written, “Mersola has the potential to become one of the most successful American playwrights of the 21st century.” Mersola’s Play Backstreets and Bathroom Stalls, (AKA Love Sucks) played at the Kraine Theatre in New York, the Lyric-Hyperion Theater in Silver Lake and the Coast Playhouse in West Hollywood with rave reviews. LA Weekly nominated Mersola for Best Director of a Comedy in 2011.
“Hoarding is a fascination of American pop culture and it creates a fantastic backdrop for a story about love and loneliness, complete with kooky characters and extreme circumstances,” says playwright Mersola.
DIRTY FILTHY LOVE STORY runs Fridays at 8pm, Saturdays at 8pm & 10pm, and Sundays at 7pm through February 10, 2013. The Skylight Theatre is located at 1816 1/2 N. Vermont, LA, 90027. Tickets are ($10- $25). Reservations: 855-585-5185 or at www.roguemachinetheatre.com
