Playwright by Sheila Callaghan

Directed by Ronnie Marmo

Genre: Comedy/Drama


CRUMBLE - Happens during Christmas, and a year has passed since the untimely death of Janice's father. Struggling to cope, Janice is holding spiteful conversations with her dolls, and her Mother is suffering from panic attacks, with only her baking skills to keep her busy. In their deteriorating Apartment that incessantly begs for repairs, their only comforts are visitations from their respective celebrity crushes - Justin Timberlake and Harrison Ford. With the support of Justin's affection, Janice begins to craft a plan that will mend the chasm in their lives. Meanwhile, the Apartment is developing murderous plans of its own...

I was surprised that this wonderful eclectic play was presented in such a small venue. CRUMBLE is full of quality work and production to create a respectful impact in the theatre world. It was the best play I’ve seen in Los Angeles. It had the perfect balance that allowed the audience decide on their own funny, drama and reality moments. The production team presented with a clear vision where their passions are leading their careers as actors and crew. Making a huge difference in the world of playwrights, especially in Los Angeles. The cast was 100% committed to create the right impact of great theatre in L.A. I loved how the stomping sounds were magically adding character to the stage; which by the way it was impeccable! This play needs to reach a higher volume of audience, so I hope it’s production is a total success across the country. A wonderful indie piece by talented raw artists willing to take risks, that’s what makes this play so good! It really deserves attention! It made me think how important is to take care of your nest (apartment/home) and how important our home relationships are. Our homes are full of personal unique stories, every home history deserves to live forever. Make yours count!
