Poe-Etic License
Sunday, June 9 at 6:30PM
Asylum @ Thymele Arts (California Room)

See Edgar Allan Poe as you never have befo’! Written* and performed
by Dr. Bradley Bobbs, with a clown raven dream dance by Alayha Aquarian,
and a song about Poe by Paul Zollo Performed by Musical Director
Daniel Collins. _* with help from E.A. Poe and Bob Dylan … really, Bob Dylan???
Experience Edgar Allan Poe’s signature dark, dank, dreary, dismal, discomposing,
desolate, disconsolate downcast, depressing, dejected, discouraging, disheartening,
dispiriting, despondent, distraught, distressing, dismaying, discomforting, disconcerting,
and disturbing side. And also his little-known comical side, when we take poetic license
in imagining him doing parodies of himself!

Bradley Bobbs takes liberties with Edgar Allan Poe in 7 performances of
"Poe-Etic License" in the Hollywood Fringe Festival in June

Ticket price is nominally $15, but ask dr.bobbs@gmail.com for a $5 discount code.
He will also give comp tickets to any who need them.

"Dusty Trails"
Christina Linhardt and the Imagination Workshop
an original 1 Act play written by and starring Veterans from
New Directions and Imagination Workshop

WHEN : Saturday, June 15, 8PM Free admission
WHERE: Brentwood School East Campus Theater
100 S. Barrington place, Los Angeles, CA 90049
(where Chayote str meets Barrington pl)

Imagination Workshop has served homeless veterans and senior veterans
at New Directions, the Salvation Army, and the California State Home for
Veterans with workshops in the theater arts, led by specially trained
professional theater artists. Most of the veterans we work with suffer
from trauma, and in their therapy have to relive the trauma.
IW is the only part of their therapy where they don't have to dwell on
the past, where they use the creative tools of the imagination, and it
opens them to a new way of envisioning a future.

Complimentary reception to follow
GPS gets wonky, it can be hard to find, entrance is across from Kreation organic
