SkyPilot’s 2019 Season Lands Its Second Runway!

Theatre Company Announces Next Selection, A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Divorce

Los Angeles – April, 2019 - Get ready for another fine season of original plays performed by LA's award-winning theater group, SkyPilot Theatre Co. Year after year this non-profit ensemble company of actors, directors, and designers, produce provocative, compelling and challenging works for the Los Angeles theater patrons. In 2018 our Runway Series was so popular with patrons and playwrights alike, we are bringing it back this year with even more on our schedule. 

After launching a national search for submissions for our 2019 Runway staged reading series, SkyPilot Theatre Company announces its next selection, A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Divorce, which will be performed Wednesday, April 10th at 8 pm at Oh My Ribs! Theater in Los Angeles.

The SkyPilot Runway is a play reading series that helps to develop new plays in the early drafts stage. The readings are rehearsed, staged, on their feet and performed with scripts-in-hand. The unique and highly popular part of the show is immediately following the performance with a focused feedback session with a moderator, the playwright, actors, and the audience. This gives everyone a chance to participate in the refinement and deeper development of the work.

Each play in the series will also be recorded as a podcast, presented in the same style as the staged performance, then made available through iTunes, Google Play and other podcast outlets as well as on SkyPilot’s website. 

SkyPilot also recently announced the slate of plays chosen for the rest of the 2019 Runway season: Helen & Troy by Amy Tofte; Honeymoon Suite by Kelli Bowlden; The Queen’sFool by Kathleen Grotzinger; and A Twisted Christmas Carol by Phil Olson.


WHEN: Wednesday, April 10
WHERE: Oh My Ribs! Theater, 6468 Santa Monica Blvd., Hollywood.
TICKETS: $5 at the door 


A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Divorce, written by Jeff Gould and directed by Margaret Starbuck, introduces three couples, all going through difficult divorces, as they anxiously and frustratingly wait in a room at a courthouse for an appointment with a mediator. Conversations begin, details of each of their troubled marriages are revealed and they eventually learn more about themselves and their relationships in just hours than they have in years of matrimony.
