THIS WEEKEND: The Mastodon
THE MASTODON is a gripping crime drama that follows Ariel, a young call girl who struggles with drug addiction, and her search for her missing girlfriend. The story examines predatory relationships, and chronicles Ariel’s ascent from the bottom to the top of the metaphorical food chain of inner city Los Angeles.
Written and directed by Ben Eisner, The Mastodon is a play rich in danger and mystery, with expert acting by Jaz Okura-Youtsey, Joan Harris, Brooke Friswold, Jessica Young, Alice Despopolous, Tera Contezac and Chris Coombs.
Ben Eisner is an experienced writer and director, and has a long history of work at iDiOM Theater, including three winning Serial Killers plays, and the successful full length serial, ABILENE. He was drawn to this project because he wanted to write a story with a female protagonist and predominantly female characters (there are six), and write them in roles that are rare for women in mainstream media.
