Who is Lonesome No More! Theatre?
Lonesome No More! Theatre is a Los Angeles-based theatre company dedicated to supporting creative communities and producing bold works that utilize the whole theatrical space, original music, and passionate exploration.

What is Making Love Over There?

Making Love Over There is a new play created with New York-based director and playwright Tom Dugdale as part of the 2012 Hollywood Fringe Festival this June. In our closets hang a thousand costumes and faces and we love to throw them on in the name of Love. With original music and the mad joy of dress-up, Making Love Over There is an attempt to rediscover Love and its language. Together, actors Patrick Riley and Zoe Chao portray dozens of characters of varying ages and nationalities in different places, times, and states of mind, all of whom are searching in one way or another for the right words.This thematic series of snapshots creates a play collage straight out of Love’s family photo album. With its bold use of the entire theatrical space, live music, projections, and passionate exploration, Making Love Over There embodies the joyous spirit and “spark for theatricality” –(LA Weekly) that has come to characterize the work of Lonesome No More! Theatre.

Why do you need our help?
For this show we are keeping our productions costs low, our costumes borrowed, and our sets simple so that we can focus on paying our artists.
We have an incredibly talented team working on this show and all of them are immensely devoted artists who would work for hours and hours for nothing in return but we don't think that's how it should be. We want to be able to compensate our team for the devotion, hard work, and creativity that they are putting into this production. We think that's important. 

We also want to be able to focus on paying our Fringe dues, which go toward making the Hollywood Fringe Festival possible. The Fringe creates a platform for artists all over Los Angeles to be able to create work that wouldn't otherwise get made and build new relationships with other artists. It gives an audience to small treasures and creates a supportive community. We think that's important too. 

We hope you will join us in our effort! 

And come see the show! http://hff12.org/903

Thank you.

Love,
Lonesome No More!
