"The Gary Plays – Fans of seminal playwright and Padua Hills Playwrights Festival founder Murray Mednick are in for a treat: Open Fist Theatre Company presents Mednick’s entire “The Gary Plays” series in one epic production. Originated by Padua Playwrights and developed in workshops over a two-year period by Open Fist, “The Gary Plays” chronicles the odyssey of unemployed actor Gary Bean, Mednick’s everyman/anti-hero who has been hailed by KCRW as “a sort of L.A. Leopold Bloom.” Audiences can choose to follow Gary’s journey over the course of three evenings — or view all six plays on a single Sunday. Part 1 (Tirade for Three, Girl on a Bed), Part 2 (Gary’s Walk, Out of the Blue) and Part 3 (DaddyO Dies Well, Charles’ Story) perform on a rotating basis on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, with all three parts performed on Sundays." according to a news release. "Tirade for Three Overwhelmed with grief and self-recrimination, Gary returns to the urban park where his son Danny was recently murdered by an “unknown assassin.” A pair of mysterious figures join him to review key moments in his life. Girl on a Bed Haunted by the tragic death of a young woman named Laura, Gary convenes a group of characters from LA’s criminal underworld to investigate together this mystery. The ghost of his son Danny joins Gary to search for answers." according to their website.
