American Bytes Back @ LOST Theatre

Directed and Designed by Prav Menon-Johansson

Liminal Space Productions presents American Bytes Back at LOST theatre from August 10-14th 2010 as apart of the First London Festival Fringe. This is an exciting UK premiere of new, contemporary American writing with seven, ten minute plays that reflect the diversity of American life.

American Bytes Back will be performed by an ensemble cast of six actors. Zoe Lister who has recently finished filming in Hollyoaks after 3 years and Chris Mitchell who comes directly from covering Wolfboy directed by Russell Labey at Trafalgar Studios in the West end. Catriona Toop who has recently finished a feature film named Written and Directed by Woody Allen, directed by Hunter Comerford that is due for release later this year. Samantha Kissin who has recently performed in the 24 Hour plays: Old Vic New Voices 2010 at the Old Vic Theatre. Michael James-Cox who starred in European Premiere of Busted Jesus Comix directed by Prav Menon-Johansson at Above the Stag Theatre and Charles Reston who performed in Flycatcher at Theatre 503.

In two plays by Steve Bergman audiences can witness the tragic tale of an abandoned childhood toy in Rosie, the Teddy Bear and the expectations and excitements surrounding two recent graduates in Marvin and Julius- the twist being that Marvin and Julius are in fact two guinea pigs. The world of rented boyfriends is also explored in Mark Harvey Levine's play The Rental where the birthday girl has just one day to enjoy her unusual gift and LA 8 AM where life can take unexpected turns.

In Peter Snoad's plays, a teenager explains the environmental benefits of killing her own father in The Greening of Bridget Kelly, and My Name is Art where the title character reveals himself in all his glory. Fate by Elizabeth Horsburgh explores the unexpected consequences of picking up a love letter.

Having trained as a director at the American Repertory Theatre (ART) in Boston, USA American Bytes Back director Prav Menon-Johansson is very excited in bringing the ten minute genre which she experienced in SLAMBoston 07 and FeverFest 07 to London as part of London Festival Fringe 2010.
