around and around and around the static sun

Join us for our first event of 2019!


Monday, February 25, 2019

Online sales are now closed for this event.


This is Wait Don’t Leave’s first event of 2019, and we want you to be there! Your ticket includes a powerful play, a scotch-themed reception, and surprises along the way, all at a site-specific eerie old church in the Hollywood Hills!

In the dark satire around and around and around the static sun, a tech entrepreneur creates a fake man to save her business and, for better or worse, sparks a movement that could overturn the world order and change history forever. This McNerney Prize finalist explores gender, historical memory, and the way people use the power of time to keep oppressive hierarchies in place.

Starring Alice Hunter (The Young and the Restless) and Molly Kunz (Widows), and featuring Joshua James Smith and Jason Ryan Lovett.

Each week focuses on a different person, including an up-and-coming erotica writer, a reluctant godmother, and a customer service agent with a dark side.
