NOBODY’S FAULT (AN APOCALYPSO IN TWO ACTS) by Carolyn Kennedy
Sunday, February 23rd at 6:30pm
State Theatre, 719 Congress Ave.
In NOBODY’S FAULT, Charlie Newcombe has left her marriage to Duane Dupres and returned to Los Angeles in hopes of reviving her career as a primetime action-series leading lady. It hasn’t gone well. She has taken refuge at the house of her best friend, cruise ship choreographer, Ricky Fletcher; a crash pad occupied by the very same LA types that sent her screaming into that not so blissful early retirement. When Ricky arrives unexpectedly, he brings with him an inconvenient and painful surprise that challenges Charlie to the core, making her wrestle with her deepest desire to end it all. Be careful what you wish for, right?
