Dead Pussy is a dramedy starring Jacquie Donley as “Ruth Crable,” Frank Zapata as her husband “Mike Crable” and Angela Oakenfold as “Boots.” (Side note: Angela also directed The Boneyard.) We watch as Ruth descends into a downward spiral over her lack of money, failed marriage and an unfulfilling job. However, the straw that breaks this camel’s back is the death of her beloved cat Boots. As Ruth becomes more intoxicated, she hallucinates that Boots has manifested into a Beatles-loving Brit. Angela Oakenfold bounces off Jacquie’s hysterical/distraught performance with ease and humor. This black comedy is witty and humorous. If you like The Lieutenant of Inishmore by Martin McDonagh, you will like this play — as I have. It left me wanting more!

Dead Pussy and The Boneyard are playing Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 8 p.m. through April 23. Tickets are $12 for general admission and $5 for students. Stella Adler Theatre (Studio C) is located at 6773 Hollywood Blvd., near Hollywood and Highland. For ticket information, visit

"The Talisman" Written By Tim McNeil @ The Stella Adler Theatre

The Talisman looks (comically) at a moment in a future world.  Larry Prescott is scavenging for valuables off a field of dead bodies when he meets a famous actress who is in great need of assistance.  The Talisman looks at greed when there is nothing left to be greedy about, and at death, when death is way too available.  

Angela Oakenfold as Natalie, Doug Bennett as Larry.  

Stella Adler Theatre, Hollywood Blvd, Fri & Sat @ 8pm, Sun @ 7pm Till 12th December 2010.
