Event Description

What if true love never happens? Or worse… what if it does? Theatre Planners presents the world premiere of an award-winning comedy by Sharon Sharth. Waiting for Grace opens as a guest production at the Odyssey Theatre on November 12, directed by Lee Costello.

Grace has it all. Or does she? A successful New York actor, she’s always put her career first. But now she’s ready for marriage and a baby. Suddenly, the clock is ticking.  A fast-paced comedy, Waiting for Grace features characters that many women will relate to, although some may find Sharth’s views controversial.

“Grace thinks she knows what her life should be, what she should want,” explains Costello. “But she doesn’t really know her own heart. We as women are presented with a labyrinth of emotion and expectation. Sometimes it can be hard to figure out which path is the right one for us as individuals.”

“This is the story of a woman who doesn’t fit into today’s zeitgeist,” Sharth says. “She didn’t know she had waited too long, She wakes up one morning and thinks she wants to be married, and she puts all her energy into that. But is what she wants really what she needs?”

Sharth, in the title role, is joined onstage by Pamela Dunlap (Madmen; HBO's Doll and Em) and Lily Knight.
 

Thurs, Fri and Sat at 8 p.m. and Sun at 2 p.m., Nov. 12 - Dec. 11 (dark Thursday, Nov. 24). All tickets are $35. The Odyssey Theatre is located at 2055 S. Sepulveda Blvd., West Los Angeles, 90025. For tix and info, call (323) 960-7788 or go to www.plays411.com/waiting.
