The loneliest desk job in the world? That 5 a.m. 100-words-before-you-go-to-work gig. A novel, a movie script, or the definitive study of mindless cetacean-worship­—The Porpoise-Driven Life, it makes no difference. Inspiration for us all is Santa Monica’s Julia Cho...keep your ass in the seat and you might collect a $20,000 check (in Cho’s case, the Susan Smith Blackburn Award for female playwrights) and see your bleedings into the keyboard garner critical and public adulation. For a reality check, take in Cho’s scintillating romantic comedy about a brilliant linguist’s problems with communication and love. The next morning, console yourself that you’re not the only one at a loss for words.
Tuesdays-Sundays, 2:30, 7:30 & 8 p.m. Starts: March 26. Continues through April 25, 2010
