Family Planning

Fri, 04/03/2009 to Sun, 04/26/2009

An intimate portrait of a marriage strained by infertility, performed in four private homes in four Los Angeles neighborhoods over four weekends.

"'Planning' is a voyeuristic glimpse into one couple’s meltdown that is as funny as it is ultimately wrenching." --F. Kathleen Foley, LA Times "For those tired of the stodgy proscenium, this production provides a wonderful respite, as well as a reminder of the voyeuristic thrill of live theater." --Mayank Keshaviah, LA Weekly "The choice of Chalk Repertory Theatre’s Family Planning as the best new play in an intimate theater truly honored the “intimate” part of that category definition. This was a production that played in the living rooms of private homes. It was a model of how companies literally can think outside the black box." --Don Shirley, LAStage Watch
