A double feature containing two shows, directed Los Angeles City College Theater Academy alumnis and starring current Theater Acadamy students.

Mechant Enfant, written by Samuel Mayer and directed by Joseph Marcelo is a drama about Brandon and Louise, two gifted young children who cling to their innocence while Brandon deals with the fallout of his sister’s suicide and Louise’s delusional mother Erica endangers her and her daughter by racking up debt. They both take shelter from the terrors of the adult world in the play’s titular children’s boutique run by the charismatic shop owner, Frederick

Darlene, written by A.R Gurney and directed by Jesse Trout follows a married couple who find themselves alone together for the first time in years when their children go to summer camp. An engaging comedy-drama that uses movement, dance and scenework to express the desire, romance and passion (or lack thereof) of the couple, and what happens when the wife finds a devious note on her car windshield.
