Theatre Unleashed welcomes back some of the most popular and critically acclaimed solo shows of the Hollywood Fringe Festival for a limited engagement at the company’s home, The Belfry Stage.

Ceremony – By Michael Kass, directed by Diana Wyenn. This award-winning true tale of love, fear and Ayahuasca, whisks audiences on a journey from Downtown L.A. to Peru's Sacred Valley and back in just under 60 minutes. At turns self-deprecatingly funny and unsparingly frank, the story grapples with universal themes of isolation, self-doubt and coming of age in the context of a shamanic medicine ceremony. Playing Friday, January 22nd at 8p.m.

I Died...I Came Back...Whatever – By Cyanne McClairian, directed by Jessica Lynn Johnson. This one-woman dramedy is about a pagan actress who dies on the operating table, awakens in “Heaven’s Waiting Room” and is led back thru her earthly life by the spirit of Sir Laurence Olivier. Will she give up on her dreams in purgatory or decide to play the greatest role of her life, with God as her director? Playing Saturday, January 23rd at 9:30p.m.

Unemployed. Finally. – By Heather Dowling, directed by Jessica Lynn Johnson. This is the story of a woman who tried on 30 jobs, in 30 years before finally doing what everyone said she couldn't. Dowling is an actress and writer who has impersonated someone who wanted a "real job" since she was 14. She has finally surrendered to her passion for writing and performing. But now she has dirt to dish about the odd-jobs and odd-balls she's encountered along the way. Playing Saturday, January 23rd at 8p.m.

War and Peace the One Man Show – By Brad Griffith, this is a journey into the world of Tolstoy’s classic novel with a quick, witty sensibility and snippets of history that will whet your appetite to conquer the classic yourself. Playing Friday, January 29th and Saturday, January 30th at 8p.m.
