Full Stage USA: James McManus

Jul 10 2014 - 2:00pm

Love on San Pedro
by James McManus
directed by Shishir Kurup

Love on San Pedro is set in Skid Row, Los Angeles, where artists rub shoulders with lawyers, pastors, social workers, and b-ball players. From the benches of San Julian Park to the walls of an intimate apartment and a raucous karaoke hall, Love On San Pedro weaves an unlikely love story in a place. Shunned by her community, Marjorie’s weariness drags time to a near standstill – as she puts it, “Darkness got a way of makin’ it feel like time ain’t movin’.” But when she’s wooed by a man whose hope and hoop-shots know no bounds, her world speeds up fast. Meet Skid Row’s intricate and vibrant community, a mere one square mile of downtown streets where the moon shines brightest in the darkest corners.
