Take Me With You

Set amidst advertising-soaked Los Angeles, a city where you "scream and you drive until you’re all screamed out," Take Me With You explores the isolation and desperation of three lonely souls on Sunset Boulevard. Expertly written and directed by Godfrey Hamilton, the script has a powerful literary quality that resonates long after you leave the theater. The play questions a world that sells false hope and distraction on every corner, and offers a tragic love story and a good dose of religious paradox. Mark Pinkosh flawlessly plays all three characters, effortlessly transitioning between them, aided with no more than a few chairs and a slight soundtrack—a challenging role that would fail in less capable hands. The play ultimately leaves you with the feeling that we’re all stuck—literally, on an endless Los Angeles freeway, or simply in our search for human connection. NANCY SMITH Presented by the London-based Starving Artists Theatre Company. 8 p.m. Thurs.-Sat., 2 p.m. Sun. Ends June 1.

Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 2 p.m. Starts: May 22. Continues through June 1, 2008
