LITTLE ARMENIA at the Fountain, the show developed by and for the local Armenian community surrounding the Hollywood theatre, has added two more weekend matinees before it closes September 3rd. This play was developed by Fountain writers throughout 2005, and incorporates stories from the history of Armenian politics and immigration to California.

Playwright and actress Dael Orlandersmith (Pulitzer finalist for YELLOWMAN) follows next at the theatre with her one-woman show. THE GIMMICK is a coming-of-age story set in Harlem, told from the point of view of teenagers Alexis and Jimmy. Three weeks only: Sept 13 - Oct 2.
