ATLAS PIT centers around 18-year-old Felinus Oswald Black (Ozzy). A year prior to the plays main action, Ozzys girlfriend (Gray) drowned in an old gravel quarry turned pond located in Milton, WI. The sudden death sentences Ozzy to an erupting depression, resulting in him running away from home and shutting himself up within a seedy apartment flat. In a continued effort to find escape, Ozzy stumbles upon a brand of heroin that brings the user so close to death that they see those waiting for them on the other side. Atlas Pit is inspired by the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice and explores the ideas of addiction, love, life, and faith.
THE LOS ANGELES NEW COURT THEATRE has become a leader in the thriving small-theatre scene of Los Angeles. Most recently our production of "50 Shades of Shakespeare" was nominated for "Best Ensemble Theatre" at the 2016 Hollywood Fringe Festival, and our production of "Jason & Medea" won an award for "Best Actress" at the 2015 Hollywood Fringe Festival.
One of L.A.s finest young companies, the L.A. New Court easily rivals work being done by older, better-known 99-seat-plan companies. -StageScene LA
