Kill Shelter



Written by Ashley Rose Wellman

Directed by Shaina Rosenthal

“Nuanced characters and snappy dialogue… haunting… droll… humorous and dramatic… A moving parable on the power of empathy, for people as well as animals. Top Ten RecommendedM. Hernandez, Stage Raw

VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED….possibly one of the best productions to grace the Theatre of NOTE stage in recent years, KILL SHELTER is eloquently written and even more passionately played.” T. Paleo, Gia on the Move

“Wow! Not only one of the most remarkable new plays I’ve seen in a very long time, it’s the best Theatre of NOTE production I’ve reviewed since the company’s streak of winners in the mid-2010s… two equally fine yet distinctly different theatergoing experiences, making a return visit an absolute must.” S. Stanley, StageSceneLA

“A powerful world premiere….anchored by a no-holds-barred, immersive, bravura performance…. Kill Shelter is thought-provoking, nuanced, bravely unflinching, emotional, and unexpected… Theatre of NOTE has a real gem on its hands.” A. Callas, Discover Hollywood

Trigger warning: This play deals with themes of abortion, and the depiction of animal euthanasia, and its content may be upsetting to some viewers. 

Please be advised that Kill Shelter is double cast – if you’re looking to support a particular artist, please make sure that the date you select includes them in the cast! (Casts are subject to change, according to actor availability).
