The Whitefire Theatre presents the world premiere of “WHERE THE NUMBERS END: A Hell’s Kitchen Love Tragedy” written and directed by Amanda Moresco, running Saturday evenings at 8:00 pm, March 18 through June 10, at the Whitefire Theatre in Sherman Oaks, CA.
“WHERE THE NUMBERS END: A Hell’s Kitchen Love Tragedy" is a poetic depiction of a Saturday night in a Hell's Kitchen bar in New York City. Margaret, the birthday girl, celebrates with her cousins Louise, a hardened smart ass and Caroline, a promiscuous drinker. The three tough New York City chicks face their demons and discover whether or not they have the strength to make it out of the bar alive. Filled with raw humor and candid truth the play explores themes of brokenness vs resilience, and the strength that it takes to escape the demons of your past.
