The Gary Plays
Fans of seminal playwright and Padua Playwrights founder Murray Mednick are in for a treat:Open Fist Theatre Company presents Mednick’s entire “The Gary Plays” series in one epic production now playing at Atwater Village Theatre.

“The Gary Plays” chronicles the odyssey of unemployed actor Gary Bean in the years following the random murder of his son. Taken as a whole, the six-play series portrays economic and spiritual distress in the contemporary urban wilderness of Los Angeles. An everyman/anti-hero, Gary was hailed by KCRW as “a sort of L.A. Leopold Bloom.”

Parts 1-2-3 perform on a rotating basis on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, with all three parts performed on Sundays.
