Bitter Lemons Editor Colin Mitchell’s World Premiere Comedy "Mission to Mate" at the 2012 Hollywood Fringe Festival is a theatrical triptych sure to tickle your dipstick, three plays, two actors, one hour, a subtly connected trio of one acts dissecting the sometimes hilarious, sometimes harrowing, always enthralling world of “seduction.”
"Mission to Mate" unfolds as a series of three one-acts; "The Twinkle in your Eye" an innocent comic coffee shop encounter that becomes something darker than it originally appears; "The Naked Cello" a bizarre late night phone call that quickly expands to Orton-esque proportions; and "Mission to Mate" a barroom come-on that stretches the boundaries of time, space and love. Each play is a two-hander, each takes place in Los Angeles, each bound to the other through the sultry and sometimes slippery theme of seduction and several thread-like plot points that are sure to challenge the audience like a good-old fashioned whodunit thriller. The one-hour show also employs dance in a way you may have never seen before and may never see again. Come. And be seduced.
“Mission to Mate” opens on Saturday, June 9 through June 24. Tickets are $10. Plays at the Fringe Central-Open Fist Theatre Mainstage, 6209 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90038 on June 9 & June 24; Continues at Theatre Asylum, 6320 Santa Monica Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90038 on June 10, 16, 17, 23.
