Horizon Theatre kicks off new season with 'Elemeno Pea'

ATLANTA -- Horizon Theatre will begin its 30th season next month.

The Little Five Points theater will celebrating this milestone year with a staging of Elemeno Pea, a comedy that premiered at the 2011 Humana Festival for New American Plays.

Horizon Theatre provided this synopsis of the play, the title of which is pronounced L-M-N-O-P:

This haves and have nots comedy is about a siblings' weekend on Martha's Vineyard gone awry when the younger sister's boss crashes the party. Summer's ending on the Vineyard, but before everything is shuttered, Simone invites her sister Devon down for a fun weekend.

As personal assistant to wealthy and demanding trophy wife Michaela Kell, Simone enjoys a lavish beachfront lifestyle that these girls never could have imagined growing up in blue-collar Buffalo. But within minutes of Devon's arrival, Michaela crashes the party. This three-ring circus send-up of the rich and their wannabe "help" finds both flying without a net.

Elemeno Pea opens Friday, Mar. 14 and runs through Sunday, Apr. 13. Tickets range in price from $20 to $30 and can be purchased at horizontheatre.com.

Horizon Theatre is located at 1083 Austin Avenue NE.
