The Online Community for Culver City – The New Scene
L.A. Weekly Theater Award winner Ian Forester has adapted David Foster Wallace's harrowing short story "Good Old Neon," into a one-man play called G.O.Ne, which he will perform at the Culver City Ivy Substation on October 23rd and 24th. Admission is $20, and tickets are available HERE.
The performances are made possible in part by a grant from the City of Culver City Performing Arts Grant Program with support from Sony Pictures Entertainment.
Here's what the LAist had to say about the adaptation (then called Glint), when Forester performed in at the the 2011 Hollywood Fringe Festival:
Wallace's stark and cerebral short story 'Good Old Neon' comes to life as Glint through a stage adaptation by Ian Forester. Staying true to Wallace's text, Glint channels a suicide narrative that stands as an ironic memoir to the recently deceased author. Forester's dramatic performance is truly outstanding. In the role of Neal he is precise, provocative, and wonderfully satisfying as he gingerly conveys the play's most beautiful lines, touching gestures, and intense moments.
Culver City Ivy Substation is located at 9070 Venice Blvd.
