“5 Sirens Beware of Rocks, is a must see this Hollywood Fringe season. The talented female playwrights, and director have dug deep to show that even at their most vulnerable women are strong creatures. It’s clear that they have each drawn experiences in their lives to, shared with us vulnerable moments. Moments that can teach us to all be stronger.” https://spencercotter.wordpress.com/2015/06/13/dashed-on-the-rocks-of-life/

“Well written and well performed” seeitla — http://seeitorskipitla.tumblr.com/seeitla

“quirky banter and creative scenarios” for three of the plays, and the other two “dare to delve into very deep, very serious ideas in spite of the limited time”
“if you want to see a diverse set of voices and support local theatre, check out these five sirens” http://www.pasadenaindependent.com/entertainment/fringe-review-5-sirens/

It’s one show of five 10-minute plays about miscommunication and the longing for connection. Subjects range from sporty nerds, sub-dom relationships and aliens to surrealistic challenges and panic attacks! We’re the 5 SIRENS, five female playwrights, and we will captivate you with our songs.

Asylum Lab – 1078 Lillian Way, Los Angeles, CA 90038

SPOCK AT BAT
A man and a woman meet at a company softball championship, but find they have very little in common as they each try to translate jock and nerd speak into terms the other will understand.

WHATEVER WORKS
A man who feels powerless in his life uses the woman he’s deeply involved with to help solve his problems. But if that doesn’t work, where will his frustrations lead?

DON’T PANIC
When put-together Paige announces she might die, it’s up to her sister to calm her down.

TEN YEARS LEFT
A woman struggles to find her voice as she interacts with her doctor, family, and agent after being diagnosed with a debilitating disease.

OUT OF HERE
A bi-sexed Alien and a guy from Missouri have different ideas about inter-species communication, with dire results.

5 SIRENS is a collective of local Los Angeles playwrights—all of who happen to be female. We send out our song to ensnare an audience. Sometimes it’s light. Sometimes dark. But we do try always to be captivating.

Descend into madness!

A 4086 m 2132509

Adapted from Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s famous 1892 feminist short story of the same name, it chronicles a young woman’s descent into madness. A blend of live-action and animation.

How to be Lazy and Not Feel Guilty

A 3906 m 5114127

A satire, not a seminar. Reviewers are calling it "relatable" and "filled with existential dread" and "watchable." Join Jenine as her suite of her overwork-induced imaginary figments try to destroy her!
