SkyPilot Theatre Company presents
SkyPilot One Act Festival 2018
The award-winning SkyPilot Theatre Company will premiere seven original short plays during its inaugural SkyPilot One-Act Festival this November at Oh My Ribs! Entertainment, 6468 Santa Monica Blvd. in Hollywood. The plays (titled Series A and Series B) will be performed over four nights (two nights for each Series) for three weekends. Tickets are $15 per night with the option of a Festival pass to see all works for $20.
With so many issues affecting our country these days, SkyPilot was inspired to focus this festival on themes relevant to everyone in one way or another, allowing the expression of different views and opinions through art and creativity. Playwrights were asked to submit works based on either #MeToo, Black Lives Matter or March for Our Lives (specifically gun safety in schools) with no limits on position – only good stories with a strong voice and something to say. More than 85 submissions came from all over the country and were narrowed down to seven, selected by the company’s members collectively.
“To do theatre and also freely comment on current issues affecting society today is truly an honor,” says James Carey, Artistic Director for SkyPilot. “Especially when we are open just six days before arguably the most important midterm elections in recent history.”
