The I Need Therapy! Show Premiering as part of Everybody Dies In the End in March 2011

TU brings back its Late Night Theatre series!

Theatre Unleashed takes a comedic look at the usual (and unusual) pitfalls of life with Everybody Dies in the End, a set of hysterical, touching and off-kilter one-acts.

LOS ANGELES – Theatre Unleashed is excited to announce the return of its Late Night Theatre series with a set of three one-acts entitled Everybody Dies in the End, running Fridays and Saturdays at 10:15 p.m., March 4-25 at NoHo Stages in North Hollywood.
Everybody Dies in the End is a hilarious presentation of comedic and slightly disturbing pieces donated by friends of the company. Two of the pieces are making their Southern California debut and a third is an updated remounting.

The “I Need Therapy!” Show by Cesar Abella first premiered as part of Theatre Underground at UCLA. A comedic journey into an insecure male psyche, the show follows Oliver, a man approaching 30, as he finds himself on an absurd game show facing past loves, rivals and demons on the road to therapeutic enlightenment…whether he wants it or not. The Crucifixion of More & Ira by Lynn-Steven Johanson takes place on a sunny morning in Judea in the year 30 AD and follows Moe and Ira as they meet at a crucifixion…their own! As they await their deaths, they discuss their crimes, searching for a way to die laughing. Look Through the Keyhole by Joshua Morrison features a young and loveless narrator as he guides patrons through his shameful nightly ritual in all its lurid detail…with a box of tissue, a satin thong and a mysterious collection bubbling beneath the mattress.

“The show came together because I saw these three plays and decided they needed to be done together, that’s it,” said Darren Mangler, producer of the show. “We all know our time is coming. What do we do to make our lives better in this crazy world of boundless options? These three plays explore three very different paths.”

Everybody Dies in the End will run after Friday and Saturday performances of the Theatre Unleashed Main Stage show The Birthday Boys, directed by Jacob Smith and running Friday through Sunday, March 4-27 at NoHo Stages as well. Set in 2006 Iraq, The Birthday Boys is a gritty and terrifying dark comedy that tracks three United States Marines who have been taken hostage, bound and blindfolded, as they do whatever’snecessary to keep their sanity and stay alive. The show, which earned rave reviews from critics and patrons alike, took top honors at the 2010 Hollywood Fringe Festival, winning Best World Premiere, mainly because of it clever dialogue, attention to authentic detail and the unique presentation of the three main actors spending a majority of the play bound and blindfolded.
