The cast is set and rehearsals are underway for the West Coast premiere of Sheila Callaghan’s madcap new play “Women Laughing Alone With Salad,” opening March 13, 2016, at the Center Theatre Group/Kirk Douglas Theatre. Directed by Neel Keller and choreographed by Ken Roht, previews for “Women Laughing Alone With Salad” begin March 6 and performances continue through April 3, 2016.
The cast includes Lisa Banes (“Gone Girl,” the film; “Present Laughter,” Broadway) Nora Kirkpatrick (founding member of the Grammy-winning band Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros; “Pink Grapefruit,” the film), David Clayton Rogers (“Revenge of the Bridesmaids,” ABC Family; guest roles on “Mixology” and “Nashville”) and Dinora Z. Walcott (“Scandal”; guest roles on “Rizzoli & Isles,” “The Mentalist”).
The story in “Women Laughing Alone With Salad” swirls around a man named Guy and three very different women in his life whose feral drives, distorted priorities and passionate love affairs with salad are driving Guy over the edge. Tossed with Callaghan’s signature bite, humor and rambunctious theatricality, “Women Laughing Alone With Salad” explores our image-obsessed culture in a world saturated by social media and seductive marketing.
Cast members Lisa Banes, Dinora Z. Walcott, Nora Kirkpatrick, director Neel Keller and cast member David Clayton Rogers in rehearsal for “Women Laughing Alone With Salad.” Written by Sheila Callaghan and directed by Keller.
