Paris Syndrome

view project

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (March 26, 2018) — Everyone knows Paris is the city of romance…or is it? Paris Syndrome, a new comedic play from Emmy nominee Ross Buran (Gay of Thrones), explores love lost and a war on Parisian sensibility.

A year removed from his divorce, a young-ish man decides the only way he can overcome the depressive hole he’s fallen into is to blame all the romance-mongers in Paris and sets off on an international journey of self-rediscovery‚Ķ Well, sort of. Basically, he just wants to find the lock he and his ex-wife once hung on a Parisian bridge and cut it off.

Paris Syndrome will run from June 2-24 as part of Hollywood Fringe Festival. The show will be performed at the Lounge Theatre in Hollywood. (6201 Santa Monica Blvd. CA 90038)

Tickets will be available May 1 at http://hff18.org/4853.
