22Q Entertainment LLC and GoAlleyCat Productions presents the West Coast Premiere of the New York hit, IT IS DONE, a thrilling new play in an environmental setting, written by award-winning playwright Alex Goldberg and directed by Ovation award-winner Michael Michetti (The Twentieth Century Way, Carousel, Paradise Lost: Shadows and Wings). IT IS DONE will preview on Sunday, May 13 at 7:00pm & Monday, May 14 at 8:30pm and will open on Tuesday, May 15 at 8:30pm and run through Tuesday, June 12 at the Pig ‘N Whistle Restaurant, 6714 Hollywood Blvd. in Hollywood.
During a howling windstorm, three strangers are trapped inside a desolate bar in the middle of nowhere. Hank, the bartender has a dirty mind. Jonas, a man on the run, has a dirty secret. Ruby, marooned at the bar with car trouble, has a dirty job. This tense and taut site-specific production is performed in a real working bar with the tunes of Hank Williams running throughout. IT IS DONE allows the audience to be flies on the wall in the middle of the action as the actors move among them. Are these people connected? Is it a coincidence that they're all there at the same time? Who will snap first?
Due to the mature nature of the play, no one under the age of 18 will be admitted.
