Writer and Director Jonathan Browning
My love of writing & directing was developed in the fertile theatre world of Chicago. Once I moved to Los Angeles, I started creating a number of award winning short films and I continue to put up new work at live theaters around the city.
I feel incredibly blessed to have the opportunity to continue to work with so many talented artists that I respect and adore.
Brand New Dramatic Short…
He Kindly Stopped, Jonathan’s first dramatic short, is almost through post production.
The story focusses on Menoes & Teddy, a pair of traveling companions who look back on their life and hesitantly look forward to a very uncertain future.
Written & Directed by Jonathan Browning.
Starring Stoney Westmoreland & Mark Elias.
One Serpent Show…
This one-man show written & performed by Jonathan Browning was presented at the Second City Hollywood Studio Theatre.
A small Southern Baptist church is visited by Satan, who gives a sermon on God’s scapegoats. He brings along a few friends to share their side of the biblical stories we have all heard a thousand times.
Directed by Stoney Westmoreland.
A Night of One-Acts…
A collection of original one-acts written and directed by Jonathan Browning. Working with a rotating cast, Jonathan workshopped over 30 original pieces, presenting new material at every show.
Themes were about Love, Loss, Life, Lies & Lucid. Performances starred Cristen Irene, Krista Lally, Carrie Weisberg, Rachel Crane, Celeste Pechous, Stoney Westmorland, Keith Reay, Josh Callahan, Jamison Scala, David Alfano, Leopold the Lion, Steven Sears, Tom Martin & Tracy Thorpe.
After creating 29 original one-acts in less than six months, I’m taking a little time off but hope to return to The Lucky And The Strong soon.

Monkey Come Home Synopsis & Episode 1 – Preview
MCH Talent, a D-Level Talent Agency run out of an ex-wife’s garage, specializes in representing a variety of performers. Their clients include a number of low-level actors but their niche is Paper Monkeys, people who dress up in costumes and hand out flyers. MCH just got a new co-owner and not everyone is excited about change.
