November 27, 2013 we presented our second installment of The Lucky And The Strong at the Second City Hollywood Studio Theatre. The theme for this show was Loss.
The following one-acts were written & directed by Jonathan Browning and workshopped with the cast.
The Host – starring Krista Lally

Stalled – starring Keith Reay
A harried businessman waits impatiently at the bus stop. He discovers an abandoned briefcase and what he finds inside changes his life forever.
Praise and Blame – starring Rachel Crane
At her Mother’s eulogy, a woman shares the complex feelings of losing her Mother and reveals a family secret that has been buried for too long.
One Last Story – starring Jonathan Browning
Twenty-years after saying goodbye to his first love, James returns to the cemetery to tell her what has become of his life and to share with her one last story.
