For immediate release!

Rude Guerrilla presents the US Premiere of Dennis Kelly's 2006
comedy/drama LOVE AND MONEY February 13!

Rude Guerrilla Theater Company is pleased to announce playwright
Dennis Kelly's 2006 comedy/drama LOVE AND MONEY as the final Main
Stage production of its 12-year history. David is having an Internet
romance, but a shocking admission starts to unravel his relationship
piece by chilling piece. Jess believes happiness can be bought – all
you need is a credit card. Val can give David a job…but she wants a
little payback. Mother is looking forward to settling the score with
the Greek and Father is looking to blame someone for his daughter's
death. Duncan can offer a way out – you just have to let him take
your picture. The production is directed by RGTC co-Artistic Director
Dave Barton.
The play opens Friday February 13 and runs thru Saturday March 21 for
16 performances at 202 N. Broadway, in Santa Ana. Show times are

British playwright Dennis Kelly's plays include "Deoxyribonucleic
Acid" (2007), "Taking Care of Baby" (2007), "After the End"
(2005), "Osama the Hero" (2005), the English language version of
Gerhart Hauptmann's "Rose Bernd" (2005), the translation of "The
Fourth Gate" by Peter Kárpáti (2004) and "Debris" (2003). His TV
credits include the television series "Pulling" (2006 - 2008)
and "Monkey Dust" (2004), and his radio credits include "12 Shares"
(2005) and "Colony" (2004). Kelly is currently under commission to
Birmingham Repertory Theatre, Hampstead Theatre, the RSC and the
Royal National Theatre. He is also writing a screenplay for Big
Talk/Film Four.
"It seems appropriate that as our theater struggles financially in
this economic climate and we're forced to close our doors, that the
last play we produce on our Main Stage is a drama about a young
couple whose relationship implodes because of their credit card
debt," says director Barton. "While Rude Guerrilla will end its
twelve years together debt-free, just a quick look at the news tells
us that many, many people and arts organizations haven't had the same
luck."
The cast of thirteen includes RGTC members Peter Balgoyen (last seen
in SEVEN DEADLY SINS), David Beatty (last seen in THE CUT), Jay
Michael Fraley (last seen in ORANGE FLOWER WATER), Karen Harris (last
seen in OUR TOWN), Brenda Kenworthy (last seen in STRANGERS, BABIES)
and Alexander Price (last seen in HELLTOWN BUFFET). Returning to the
RGTC stage is David Cramer (last seen in SAN DIEGO), Ryan Gohl (last
seen in THE LONG GOODBYE), Jill Cary Martin (last seen in THE VISIT)
and Christine Tanabe (last seen in KNIVES IN HENS). Sharon Katouli,
Terri Mowrey and Chris Secor make their Rude Guerrilla debuts with
this production.

Design is by R. J. Romero; Visual Media Designer is Eric Wahl and
Sound Design is by Dave Barton.

Rude Guerrilla Theater Company closes its doors with the LA/OC
Premiere of Caryl Churchill's 2002 drama A NUMBER on February 21!

Rude Guerrilla Theater Company is pleased to announce the LA/OC
Premiere of playwright Caryl Churchill's 2002 drama A NUMBER as the
final production of its 12-year history.
What would you do if you found out that you weren't really you? Or
that there might be a lot more of you than you possibly imagined?
Churchill's acclaimed drama about cloning pits father against
son...and son...and son. The production is directed by RGTC member
Scott Barber.
The play opens Saturday February 21 and runs thru Sunday March 22 for
10 performances at 202 N. Broadway, in Santa Ana. Show times are
Saturday matinees at 4:30 p.m. and Sunday evenings at 7:00 p.m.
Tickets are $20 general admission, $15 for seniors and an inexpensive
$10 for students with an ID.
British playwright Caryl Churchill was born in 1938 in London. Her
plays include: LIGHT SHINING IN BUCKINGHAMSHIRE, VINEGAR TOM, CLOUD
NINE, TOP GIRLS, FEN, SERIOUS MONEY, MAD FOREST, THE SKRIKER, FAR
AWAY and DRUNK ENOUGH TO SAY I LOVE YOU?, among others. Her most
recent play, SEVEN JEWISH CHILDREN, about the troubles in Gaza,
closes at The Royal Court on Feb. 21st.
She has won two OBIEs: one for CLOUD NINE in 1982 and the other for
TOP GIRLS in 1983. She has also won the Hollywood Dramalogue Critics
Award for CLOUD NINE and the Susan Smith Blackburn Award for FEN in
1984 and for SERIOUS MONEY in 1987. SERIOUS MONEY won the Olivier
Award for Best Play of 1987, the Evening Standard Award for Best
Comedy and the Plays and Players Award.
"When I first read A NUMBER, I was immediately struck by its
complexities," says director Barber. "Once Vince Campbell and Mark
Coyan were cast as the father and sons respectively, the
collaborative conversations we've had discussing its central themes--
truth, regret, coming to terms with who we are and what makes us that
way-- have been exhilarating.
We've been able to take this brilliant play - a script without stage
directions and sparse on punctuation - and move beyond its surface
realm of science fiction, straight into its family tragedies. We
look forward to the discussions that this tightly wound package of a
play provokes from the audience!"
A NUMBER's Lighting Design is by R.J. Romero and Levi Rugg; Sound
Design is by Scott Barber; The Stage Manager and Board Operator is
Samantha Wellen.
