OCPA Studios continues at Hunger Artists Theatre with the reading of a new play by Andrea Sloan Pink, “Origami”. “Origami” will appear at Hunger Artists Theatre on September 10th at 4pm. Admission is free. For complete directions on how to get to the theater, check the Hunger Artists website at http://www.hungerartists.com/.

“Origami”, a winner of the 2007 Panndora Productions New Play Festival, explores what is folded and what unfolds. Ben, a mathematician, and his wife Leslie struggle to find the place where love and work meet when Ben’s parent’s revelation causes them to re-examine their life together.

Andrea Sloan Pink is a writer-producer working in theater and film. Her award-winning plays have seen performances throughout Southern California. Andrea received an MFA in screenwriting from the UCLA School of Film where her first play, The Physiology of Solar Flares, was produced as part of the Francis Ford Coppola One-Act Festival. She earned a Juris Doctorate from UCLA School of Law and practiced entertainment, internet and technology law.

“Origami” will appear at Hunger Artists Theatre on September 10th at 4pm. Admission is free. OCPA Studio’s second season will extend through the end of the year, with informal readings of some of the best plays by local writers. Both organizations enthusiastically anticipate a season that will bring new and exciting theater to Orange County.

The Orange County Playwrights Alliance (OCPA) began on April 1, 1995 with an informal meeting in an oncologist’s office in Anaheim. Since then, OCPA has become the fundamental group for playwrights in O.C., presenting staged readings and productions of plays at venues such as the Hunger Artists Theatre, the Vanguard Theatre, Rude Guerrilla Theatre Company, STAGESTheatre, Chapman University, the Curtis Theatre, and Newport Theatre Arts Center. OCPA playwrights have been produced across the United States, and have won national and regional playwrighting awards.

Hunger Artists Theatre Company was founded in 1996 and is the first Orange County based alternative theater. Located on the east end of Fullerton’s vibrant Theatre Community, Hunger Artists has transformed an industrial warehouse into an unexpected art-house gem. This intimate storefront theatre seats 50 and stages an array of alternative theatrical entertainment. The Hunger Artists have a long tradition of premiering local playwrights from Fengar Gael’s “The Cantor’s Tale” to Johnna Adams’s “Cockfighters” and “Sans Merci”. Focusing on innovative storytelling and producing thought-provoking art, The Hunger Artists pride themselves on hosting an annual playwriting festival, “Beyond Convention” to push the boundaries of traditional theater.
