“Chicken Shoot” in Road Summer Playwrights Festival July 29th

Thrilled to be part of SPF6 at The Road Theatre Company – once again, the Road artists are so very cool. As I can’t help keep mentioning, I’m crazy for the poster for my play, “Chicken Shoot.”  AND I’m really fortunate to work with director Michelle Gillette and actors Hilary J. Schwartz & Lorianne Hill.

“Chicken Shoot” is a short comedy about crimes and validation.  When two half-sisters visit an abandoned aerospace compound, absurd government secrets shed an unexpected light on toxic family truths. The night also features my friend Stephanie Walker’s full-length “The Art of Disappearing,” directed by John Gowans. See you then for food, drinks, music and two plays by LA women playwrights! Performances are at The Road on Magnolia in the NoHo Senior Arts Colony, 10747 Magnolia Blvd.

No reservations are necessary; tickets are by donation only ($15 suggested). More info: http://www.roadtheatre.org/chicken-shoot-by-jennie-webb/

Thank you to all at The Road for involving me again this year, especially the producers including Scott Alan Smith and Carlyle King. A special shout out to Tiffany Antone and the artists involved in Little Black Dress INK‘s Female Playwrights ONSTAGE, where “Chicken Shoot” was a Finalist. And thanks to my sweet husband Jim for helping with the image, below, and also for some fab SFX for the reading – I am laughing already!

“Rebecca on the Bus” Kicks Up HowRound PC Discussion

My good friend and colleague Tiffany Antone, creator of Little Black Dress INK, bravely ventures into the PC fray with her terrific piece in Howlround.com about her experiences after selecting my “little rape comedy” for 2014’s Female Playwrights ONSTAGE Festival. Was wonderful to see a reading at LATC, directed by Sara Israel, with a few of my favorite actors: Reena Dutt, Tracy Elliott & June Carryl.

Read the Article Here. Thanks so much, Tiffany! (And thank you Indie Theater NOW for publishing “Rebecca on the Bus” as part of LBDI’s “Planting the Seed” Collection.)
