Originally staged at the Egyptian Arena Theater in Hollywood, this darkly comic piece (reminiscent of the style of David Mamet) takes place in the back room of a Long Island coffee shop as three cops covertly cook up the “perfect crime.” Their scheming is at turns edgy, pointed and hilarious. But can they trust each other? – that’s the question. What begins as a simple burglary plot escalates into a cat-and-mouse game – and finally into a dramatic confrontation, forcing each of the men to come to grips with the fact that trust is a two-way street. And, once it’s broken, there’s no turning back.

ONE WAY STREET was originally presented by The Grace Players at the Egyptian Arena Theatre in Hollywood as part of their “Acts of Grace” one-act play festival. The play was directed by Natalija Nogulich.
