Welcome to Heretofore

Welcome to HeretoforeWELCOME TO HERETOFORE a world premiere comedy written by Steve Nevil, directed by Elayne Heilveil, starring the original Theatre West 2017 WestFest cast Leslie Caveny, Doug Haverty, and Steve Nevil. The play runs various days, dates, and times June 3 through June 23 at the Hudson Guild Theatre as part of the Hollywood Fringe Festival 2017.

"Welcome to Heretofore" takes place in an abandoned Wild West town, well after the Gold Rush, where an old man is taken care of every day by his faithful companion. Into their midst comes a female force-of-nature who will by day's end change both of their lives forever. This play uses Samuel Beckett's classic play "Endgame" as a jumping off point to create an uproarious fable of love and redemption.
