Hella Fresh Theater of Los Angeles in collaboration with the Hum’n’bards Performance Troupe of Philadelphia and Automatic Arts of Philadelphia is proud to present a new play, But Next Not This.
Juanita is a self-serious 19-year-old college student who overcame childhood brain cancer. Bonita is her self-righteous 25-year-old sister who moved to Philly and stays high until tomorrow every day. Following in her older sister’s footsteps by going to Berkeley, self-serious Juanita befriends an ex-friend of Bonita. The ex-friend ingratiates herself into Juanita’s life with war stories and secrets of Bonita. During a seemingly innocuous phone conversation, Juanita ambushes Bonita armed with the sordid details supplied by the ex-friend. The two sisters get into a huge fight not really, but yeah, really.
But Next Not This will be performed simultaneously in Los Angeles and Philadelphia. Audience members in each city will watch the play in the apartment of one of the sisters. Via headphones, audience members will listen to the call between the sisters but also witness the hidden actions and reactions not expressed on the phone, offering cleaved perspectives according to location.
Hella Fresh Theater is a Los Angeles based independent theater company devoted to finding nice actors, writing new plays based on the nice actors and putting the play up. Hella Fresh Theater has written and produced thirteen plays in San Francisco, Philadelphia and Los Angeles. But Next Not This will be the fifth original production by Hella Fresh Theater in Los Angeles in the past two years.
