"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. "DaddyO Dies Well Still haunted by ghosts, Gary joins DaddyO for an ayahuasca ceremony in which he and Gloria finally come to terms with their son Danny’s passing. Charles Story Working now as a performance therapist at a high-end rehab center in Malibu, Gary encounters his ex-agent. Also in attendance is Charles, the mild mannered father of the girl Laura from Girl on a Bed. Using the art of performance, Gary guides Charles through a process of healing for the death of his daughter but the process is cut short by the wild fires raging through the hills of Malibu." according to their website.
