The Lucky And The Strong: Life

December 11, 2013 we presented our third installment of The Lucky And The Strong at the Second City Hollywood Studio Theatre.  The theme for this show was Life.  (This was our tightest turn-around, with less than two-weeks to write, workshop, rehearse and mount these one-acts.)

The following one-acts were written & directed by Jonathan Browning and workshopped with the cast.

The Host – starring Jonathan Browning

The host suggests that rather than being “perfect” we are all broken, shattered into a million parts.  But this allows us to give a piece of ourselves to everyone we meet and we, in turn, take a piece of them with us.  Each life is really a mosaic of all the lives we have touched and the lives that have touched us.

The Promise – starring Carrie Weisberg

A young hospice worker finds out that not even death can keep true love from keeping a promise.

Thirty-Seconds – starring Krista Lally and Keith Reay

Two divorcees go on a first date and after one of them asks an inappropriate question, things get very honest, very quickly.

The Big Question – starring Leo The Lion

A stuffed lion, now living alone in a dark attic, talks about the love he shared with a young boy and what he believes is the meaning of life…or at least the meaning of life for a stuffed animal.

Fair is Fair – starring Stoney Westmoreland

A police officer remembers a bullying incident in high school and how it shaped his life and his perception of what is fair.
