Original Psychological Thriller in Stage Right Production’s 11th World Premier Stage Right Productions and Creative Heart Productions presents FADE IN: A Twisted Tinseltown Thriller. The play is an original psychological thriller with edgy humor written by local playwright, actor and director Patricia West-Del Ruth.
Set in present-day Los Angeles, FADE IN: stars local actors Skye Stafford (Venus in Fur), Catherine Christie (5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche) and Robert Marquez (The Pillowman). This original, spellbinding work according to Stafford is “reminiscent of a Twilight Zone episode with the edginess of a Tarantino film.”
The production incorporates amazing visual special effects to enhance the story which were created by Jesse Locke and Matthew Del Ruth.
West-Del Ruth has been promoting the region for the last decade, serving the state in different capacities. As director of cinema arts education for Film Oregon Alliance, she brought industry professionals to the region conducting workshops, seminars and screenings. When she is not writing, she helps in casting locally produced films and is an actor as well. West-Del Ruth’s intentions are to transcend FADE IN: the play, into an independent film to be shot both here in Bend and in Portland.
The story revolves around two estranged sisters, a psychologist and an LA screenwriter, who must come to terms with an horrific past and the love they share over a deranged actor. The spell-binding play examines aberrant psychology and dysfunctional family dynamics delivering energy and entertainment that will electrify audiences.
