Meet 11-year old socially inept Simon Tarbox. His mother is Nancy Tarbox, an aggressive self-proclaimed sociopath who is likely trying to kill him. His best friend is Charlie Moose, a morbidly obese and immobile novelist obsessed with a false stripper named Honey. Through this unlikely friendship both seek refuge from a dismal reality in the worlds of their respective imaginations. Eventually, their fabled worlds come crashing down, leaving each more alone than ever. This is a dark comedy about imagination and memory, and exploring the dangers of living solely in the space where they converge.

2Cents Theatre Group is an artistic organization dedicated to the rejuvenation and exposure of ART from all eras, expressed through theatrical mediums, drawing from the strengths, ambitions and aspirations of our diverse and evolving community of artists. Founded in 2012 as a group of artists who want to “voice their own two cents”, they’re now entering their fifth season, in residence at the Hudson Theatres in Hollywood.
Notable past productions include their award-winning intimate production of Jonathan Larson’s “RENT” (NAACP), last year’s critically acclaimed caper comedy “Den of Thieves”, a critically acclaimed unique interpretation of Jason Robert Brown’s “The Last Five Years”, the smash hit immersive sensation “The Rocky Horror Experience” and immersive Hollywood Fringe Festival favorites “Fugitive Songs” (Miller & Tysen) and their original “NILBOG” the Troll 2 musical parody. “NILBOG” is currently being workshopped at various venues, leading up to a world premiere opening Fall 2017. Los Angeles critics consistently remark at 2Cents’ daring originality while managing to respect the authentic story of whatever piece they’re taking on.
2Cents produces their annual "Acting Out INK Fest”, a 3-day Festival of female playwrights taking place at the Hudson Theatres each spring, featuring around 20 plays all written by women from around the country. INK Fest, now in its 4th year, involves over 100 actors, directors and other artists and is highly anticipated both locally and nationally. Parties, special feature productions, and a culminating awards ceremony at the end of the weekend embellish this wonderful ART-filled weekend. INK Fest was originally inspired by 2Cents’ non-profit partnership with LA Women’s Theatre Project.
2Cents also maintains an active outreach program. Most notably, paired with charitable organizations, the 2Cents Carolers travel around Los Angeles throughout the month of December singing for homeless shelters and supportive housing facilities. 2Cents also spends time in schools for underprivileged children leading workshops. And they partner with organizations to raise money for corresponding causes (ie AIDS research organizations paired with “RENT”). 2Cents is ultimately committed to bringing ART to everyone in the community, by whatever means necessary.

London Calling is a gritty musical inspired by music of The Clash. The lyrics of the songs are part of the dialog and propel the story forward. A story of aspirations, disappointment, and redemption, based on the events of our lives and others.
