“New York is an ugly city, a dirty city. Its climate is a scandal, its politics are used to frighten children, its traffic is madness, its competition is murderous. But there is one thing about it - once you have lived in New York and it has become your home, no place else is good enough.” ― John Steinbeck
Veteran of stage and screen, Ted Lange is directing a staged reading of Los Angeles Playwright Charles Sullivan’s new play Devil Works on May 8th at 7 p.m. at The Vision Theatre at Leimert Park (3341 W 43rd Place, Los Angeles,90008). The cast includes Cal Wilson, Tiffany Adams, Richard Caines, Andrew Walker, Bruce Cervi, Steve Ducey, and Donn Swaby.
Devil Works is a dark comedy that deals with the real or imaginary accounts of a writer’s close encounters with the devil; a devil who he, along with his brother created in a television series, and subsequently tried to kill off when the series ended.
What follows is a bizarre series of events that pits the Devil against his creators and his determination to get revenge, not because the series was cancelled, but because he was left disabled. You see he’s confined to a wheelchair, and it’s not the nature of the devil to be confined in any manner.
Tickets are $10 at the door with all proceeds going to support Vision Theatre at Leimert Park. The Vision Parking Lot on Degnan Boulevard at the rear of the Theater and surrounding Street Parking is available.
For information call (323) 290-2386
The Vision Theatre is operated by the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.

“I pushed him against his Jeep, looked him dead in the eye and kissed him. He asked if he could come up, and I just walked up the steps and said, not yet. That was the moment I knew I loved him.” ― Dominic Riccitello
“The size and height of the tree determines how heavily the ground will shake when it falls. The cassava tree falls and not even the pests in the forest are aware. The baobab tree falls and the whole forest looks empty! Such is human life!” ― Israelmore Ayivor
