[LAWS] Join Us for a Fascinating Evening of Theater

The group will meet at 5:30 for dinner at the Brownstone Bistro, 5047 W. Pico Blvd., (between Sycamore and Orange), Los Angeles, CA 90019.  At about 7:30 we will walk next door to the Rogue Machine Theatre (voted L.A.'s best small theater company in 2012) to see Falling, which starts at 8 p.m.  Seating is open. 

When you RSVP, please indicate whether you are joining us for dinner.  Also please plan on purchasing a theater ticket immediately; the discount tickets sites are already sold out for early November.  The LAWS No Show/Late Cancellation Policy applies to this meetup.  If you aren't familiar with it, please read it at http://www.meetup.com/LAWS-LA-Womens-Social-Meetup-Group/messages/boards/thread/5250469#[masked].

The Play:  Boldly exploring the dynamic and complicated reality of a family with an autistic 18-year-old, Falling poses difficult questions about loving someone who is hard to love. The Martins try desperately to lead a normal life. But, when a relative comes to visit, the entire family is thrown out of equilibrium.

Capping off her rave review, Margaret Gray of the Los Angeles Times commented, "There are no villains here, only complex, compassionately drawn, unforgettable people."

Restaurant:  http://losangeles.menupages.com/restaurants/brownstone-bistro/.  They will not do separate checks, so please bring plenty of cash.

Tickets:  Full-price tickets cost $30 and are available from the theater's website, http://roguemachinetheatre.com/wordpress/show-info/falling/.  

Discounted Options:  http://www.lastagealliance.com/falling/ and http://www.goldstar.com/los-angeles/events?q=falling are priced at $15 + applicable fees if available.

Parking:  There is free parking in the restaurant lot, or visit the theater website for neighborhood parking. 

This should be a terrific evening, and I hope that you can join us!  Contact Jill on the website with any questions.

    Great restaurant...great play...and once again GREAT COMPANY! I DO recommend the play, as it gave me a whole new perspective on families living with high spectrum Autism. I was totally engrossed in the play, and appreciated the actors coming out for a talk afterwards. The young man who played the autistic son was extremely enlightening on how the cast had visited countless such homes to witness family behavior before starting rehearsals. Thanks again!

    This was a well-written, intense and educational drama brought to often uncomfortable life by an excellent cast. I was very impressed by the way the actors inhabited their roles: it felt like I was eavesdropping on a troubled family. Thanks to Jill for organizing this event and for discovering a terrific restaurant: Brownstone Bistro. Highly recommended!

    I knew I couldn't make this date, so went to the play with my friend Betsy last night. It is a powerful story; well acted and thought provoking. It's stayed with me all day today. Looking forward to seeing your comments!
