The Brick

The Brick “A tremendously moving show, disguised as an evening of comic songs.” – Fringe Review. A man meets a ghost on the beach. Their chance at reconciliation lies in the songs that hold their memories. Russian soldiers, horse races, cockfights and Steve Martin, all play a role in this one man musical by Bill Berry, directed by Kelly DeSarla.

The Second Annual Santa Monica Playhouse BFF Binge Free Festival of Theatre presents one night only of Bill Berry’s The Brick. Called the “Quentin Tarantino of Folk Music,” snazzy, sketchy, sharp-witted singer/songwriter Bill Berry writes story songs which cheerfully celebrate the car wreck lifestyles of those fumbling with love’s ruins and lighting small fires on big castaway islands of hope. Bill’s latest album Awkward Stage (“an instant classic!” - Blitz Magazine) recently contended for the Best Comedy Album Grammy. Bill’s songs have been featured on Conan, Samantha Bee and Dr. Demento. This is his fourth play. Kelly DeSarla made her directorial debut at the 2017 Hollywood Fringe Festival with The Brick. Her performance in Henry Jaglom’s Train to Zakopané won Kelly a 2014 Last Straw Award. She can be seen as a series regular in the soon to be released virtual reality series, Defrost, directed by Randal Kleiser, which premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. Kelly is a trained classical flutist and performs regularly in Harriet Schock’s band.
