I had a great time yesterday at the third installment in this series of Write Act Repertory’s annual Women’s Playwright Festival. 

Series C, featuring the short dynamic plays of super talented playwright Rochelle Perry, made its successful premiere this past weekend at the cozy Brickhouse Theatre in North Hollywood. Ms. Perry's comedies are very good and fans of moody dark and emotional material will especially love her work.  For me it was like an early, enjoyable Halloween treat with lots of chills and thrills.  I attended the first two parts of this great series, but Series C took it to a whole other level.  Rochelle Perry is really a great writer with an incredible imagination!  After the show was over I met her and discovered she is also a very nice young lady! 

Here’s a quick rundown of these excellent short plays:

The first play is ‘"The Color Yellow" directed by Donna Wheeler and featuring Jasmine Williams, Anna Dawahare, Johnson Cooley and Jeffrey Han. A very funny piece about fate and the pursuit of love and lust.

"A Good Mother" directed by Louise Kroot-Haukka, featuring Suzie Heaton, Isaac Jay and Cameron Kauffman is a moving, emotional piece about teen angst - with a twist.

"Save Our Marriage" directed by Stephen Loftin, featuring Lara Fisher,  AJ Sass and Johnson Coley as the world's largest baby, lol - it’s hilarious!

"Failure to the Family ll: The Glass Ceiling" directed by Anne T. Mesa, featuring Jeffrey Han and Jacob Osborne is a gripping, poignant, emotional roller coaster and very moving.

"Ella Earns Her Stars" is another comedy with offbeat elements set in a bakery, directed by Stephen Loftin and featuring Sophia Castillo, EP McKnight and AJ Sass in three very different roles.

"Purple Dinosaurs" directed by Donna Wheeler, featuring Stephen Loftin, Lara Fisher and Isaac Jay is also very entertaining and well written.

"Candy Cane Killer" is a scary, riveting who-done-it thriller with an eerie, supernatural tone,  directed by Angela Relucio, featuring Cameron Kauffman, Jacob Osborne, Sophia Castillo, Julian Fletcher and Angela Relucio.
