LETTERS FROM HOME
Written and performed by Kalean Ung
Music by Chinary Ung
Directed by Marina McClure

November 10 - 18, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm
$25 General Admission, $35 Generous Admission

In 2016, Kalean Ung learned of a drawer in her father’s study, filled with letters from family and friends living in desperate circumstances in refugee camps and detailing their lives during the genocide that befell Cambodia with the rise of the Khmer Rouge. Letters from Home examines her own life through the stories her father (acclaimed composer Chinary Ung) told her of arriving in America in the 1960s as a young music student and his subsequent quest to rescue family members. Through song, storytelling, and the text of the letters, she navigates the boundary between her family’s history and her own experience as a bi-racial, first generation American. First presented as a reading at our iambic lab series, this extraordinary collaboration between father and daughter takes the next step in its development in the ISC Studio before embarking on tour. FOUR PERFORMANCES ONLY.

A CHRISTMAS CAROL WITH CHARLES DICKENS
December 7 - 23, Thursdays-Saturdays at 7:30, Sundays at 2:00, additional Saturday 12/23 at 2:00
$25 General Admission, $35 Generous Admission

In what has become a holiday tradition, ISC re-creates (with a little artistic license) the experience of a public reading given by Mr. Dickens himself. Based on the novelist’s own adaptation, A CHRISTMAS CAROL WITH CHARLES DICKENS is performed by ISC co-founder David Melville as Charles Dickens, playing nearly every character in the story. The LA Weekly said, “David Melville has an almost preternatural gift for wry understatement and comic timing.” The production features musical accompaniment and dramatic interjections by a young American actress, played by Kalean Ung.

ONE NIGHT ONLY!

DR PINCH AND THE PINCHTONES IN THE WAR ON PINCHMAS
Saturday, December 16 at 7:30 pm
Tickets: $45 General Admission, $75 VIP Experience
18 and older, please.

Never seen a subversive holiday show hosted by a band that spun off from the Shakespeare play The Comedy of Errors? Dr Pinch and the Pinchtones are back for the subversive holiday vaudeville that includes swing music, offensive humor, nudity...and a visit from Krampus. It's definitely not for the Kinder, and it may be best to designate a driver. VIP tickets includes complimentary drinks, table seating, and a specially curated gift. But don't worry, everyone gets to play hide the pickle! Experience the Pinchtones here.
