The company of actors and production team for our Los Angeles Premiere of Reborning met together for the first time Monday night at the Fountain for the first rehearsal. Written by Zayd Dohrn and directed by Simon Levy, this smart, funny, dark comedy/drama stars Kristin Carey, Ryan Doucette and Joanna Strapp. It opens January 24, 2015, to launch our 25th Anniversary season.

Reborning is a darkly funny and unique story that takes an unsettling look at family, motherhood and the power of healing. A young artist who crafts custom-made lifelike latex dolls for parents who have lost their child begins to suspect that a demanding client may be the mother who abandoned her at birth. As she tries to unravel the mystery, she discovers the path to her own “reborning.”

At Monday night’s first rehearsal, producer Stephen Sachs spoke about how proud the Fountain was to present the LA premiere of Dohrn’s play and to introduce the work of this exciting young playwright to Los Angeles audiences. The company completed paperwork and administrative business and then the cast read the play aloud. It was exciting to hear the script come alive as it was read by our talented actors.
