Los Angeles, California, May 30, 2015 (Newswire.com) - Actress Hila Melamed, best known for her breakthrough role in Picnic, has solidified herself over the years as one of the rising stars of Hollywood. Now, with multiple new projects on the horizon, Hila will also be seen on stages playing Rosalie in the play “Grace, Sponsored by Monteverde”. The play written by Vanessa Garcia is produced by JustA Theater & Production Co.
ABOUT THE PLAY
Catherine has just divorced Sebastian, but her spirits are more fervent than ever. She begins traveling through the United States in an RV sponsored by rum brand Monteverde. Along the way, she picks up strays — a wayward nun named Rosalie who has just gone through deep loss, another reporter names Lewis and a teenaged girl named Blake. Together they are trying to uncover journalistic stories in each of the fifty states. Looking for the new American identity.
In broad strokes, Grace… is largely a play about contemporary American culture and women within it. It deals with the search for selfhood in all its humor, humility, embarrassment, and struggle.

We are drawn to exciting new works that aim to eliminate this imbalance, and challenge other members of the artistic community to support and lift these daring new voices.
JustA also believes in utilizing nonrealistic, surreal and/or absurd elements as a method to raise storytelling past the ordinary objects and interactions of everyday life, in order to reach a new, more profound understanding of humanity and the world around us.
