LA and SF based production company PianoFight presents a world-premiere comedy, SLUMPBUSTER, by Robert Potter, the first LA winner of the nation's largest audience-judged playwriting competition, ShortLived.
SUMPBUSTER premieres February 10th, 2011, and runs Thursdays at 8:00pm and Sundays at 8:00pm through March 6th, at the Asylum Lab located at 1078 Lillian Way, Los Angeles 90038.
The story centers on a superstar baseball player, Jake, who's in the middle of a severe slump. Egged on by his loudmouthed teammates at a bar, Jake decides to introduce himself to Molly, an unlucky-in-love pastry chef, who his pals have identified as a "slumpbuster." When their one-night-stand turns into a loving relationship, Jake's prospects on the field take a turn for the better and Molly realizes her dream of opening her own restaurant. But their good fortunes come to a crashing halt when the "slumpbusting" impetus behind their romance is revealed. With his relationship on the rocks and a World Series against the Yankees hanging in the balance, Jake must learn that in love and baseball, scoring is only part of the game.
Starring Teresa Reilly as Molly and Jeff Kongs as Jake. Also featuring Liz Osborn, Heather Brooker, Ramon Camacho, Jay Pennick, Wayne Roberts and Elizabeth Schmidt. The play is directed by Matt Ryan, who also directed Potter's winning piece in ShortLived, and directed the award-winning short film Nothing But Besties which was featured in the 2010 Duke City Shootout Film Festival. Long-standing PianoFight producing company members Nina Harada and Jeremy Mascia produce.
