The Moveable Feast
Paris – the 1920s. Ernest Hemmingway brought together a circle of American expatriate friends including: Aleister Crowley, Ezra Pound, Gertrude Stein, F. Scott Fitzgerald and James Joyce and wrote about their lives, aspirations and interactions in the City of Lights. The work is considered by many to be Hemmingway’s greatest.
The Moveable Theatre Company
Los Angeles – the 2000s. A circle of theatre-loving friends gather to pool their talents and create a quality theatre experience that takes theatre to where the audiences are, rather than attempting to bring audiences to a specific location. With no venue-related overhead, costs are kept to a minimum, talent can be gathered from many locations and charities throughout Los Angeles can benefit from performances held as fundraisers.
On Sunday, May 5, 2013 The Moveable Theatre Company presented a World Premiere Staged Reading of Evenings With the Boys in the Backroom by Peter Adum and Joyce Fante. Set in 1938-40, this original work chronicles the friendships between Hollywood book store owner Stanley Rose and some of his most famous customers: John Fante, William Saroyan, Nathanael West and Carey McWilliams. John Fante's widow, Mrs. Joyce Fante shared the intimate details of the conversations that occurred in Stanley Rose's back room behind the book shop, where some of the most famous figures in American literature during the 1930s talked, drank, played cards and discussed ideas which would inspire their most famous works. The list of characters in this play read like a "Who's Who" of the Los Angeles literary scene during Hollywood's Golden Age. The presentation included a Q and A session with playwright Peter Adum.

THE MOVEABLE THEATRE COMPANY MISSION STATEMENT
The Moveable Theatre Company takes quality theatrical performances to audiences throughout Los Angeles, while using the performances to raise money for worthy charitable causes.
Most small organizations or clubs face the constant challenge of raising unrestricted funds for their worthy ongoing projects and programs.
Usually operating with a limited staff or a small team of dedicated volunteers – there are only so many car washes, bake sales or raffles that can be done – and still the need for more operating funds remains.
If you are looking for a creative alternative – consider hosting a show by The Moveable Theatre Company!
The Moveable Theatre Company is a Non-Profit 501c3 organization, through our fiscal partner The Pasadena Shakespeare Company (Tax ID #95-4571314).
